2. To contact by e-mail:

Although it is rare, emails may be “lost” and not received by us. Also, we use a filter to protect against “spam” email. If you send us an email and do not receive a response within two working days, please re-send your e-mail or CALL us. In SC, our toll-free numbers are 866-275-7273 (voice) and 866-232-4525 (TTY). Our central office number is 803-782-0639.

Caution: Sending an e-mail to P&A does not mean P&A agrees to represent you. Before accepting a case, P&A first has to check to see:

  • If representing you would be a conflict of interest with any P&A client.
  • If your legal issue is one of our current goals and meets our case selection criteria. You can read them using the link to Our Goals.

If your problem involves two or more individuals with disabilities, do NOT send any documents or specific information in your e-mail. Example: There is a problem between your child who receives special education services and another student in the special education class. P&A may already be assisting the other child. If so, we will try to suggest other places where you may get help.
