Who We Are

Jane Elizabeth WindsorAttorney Jane Windsor clearly recognizes the difficulties parents have in assuring the right educational support for their children, for she is the mother of a child with ADHD who is now a successful adult. Learning to advocate for her own daughter Ms. Windsor brought this knowledge to her classroom. Attorney Windsor began her career as a teacher with Hillsborough County School District where she administered and coordinated IEP’s (Individualized Education Plans) and implemented 504 Plans as defined under both federal law and Florida law. In doing so, Ms Windsor developed in-depth knowledge of the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA), in order to best advocate for her students.

During her career in education Ms. Windsor learned to coordinate programs for her special needs students. Through her passion for the children she taught, Ms. Windsor decided to become an attorney specifically for the purpose of increasing her ability to support parents of special needs children. During law school Attorney Windsor discovered she too has a disability, ADHD and dyslexia. She had to learn how to use the American with Disabilities Act (ADA) to advocate for her own education in order to get the accommodations she needed to pass her classes and complete her legal education. By being her own advocate Ms. Windsor received the accommodations she needed which took her from earning average grades to earning A’s and B’s; on three occasions earning the highest A’s in her class.

Ms. Windsor is an active member of COPAA (Council of Parent Attorneys and Advocates), which allows her to stay abreast of state and federal laws governing special education rights. She is also a member of the FL Bar Administrative Law Section, Sarasota Bar Association, Judge John M. Scheb American Inn of Court, and Florida Association of Women Lawyers.

A Florida native, Ms. Windsor is a graduate of Sarasota High School and Florida State University, where she earned a Bachelor of Science degree in 1979. After raising her daughter, with a successful career as a classroom teacher, she attended law school in Michigan, obtaining her Juris Doctor Degree from Thomas M. Cooley Law School in 2009. Ms Windsor was on the Dean’s List. She earned three Certificate of Merit Awards: in Constitutional Law, Alternative Dispute Resolution and Florida Comparative Procedure. Attorney Jane Windsor was admitted in to practice in Florida in 2010.

She enjoys music and attending the Theatre. She's an avid reader, people person, and is a professional listener/problem solver.
