Cheramie Walz is a former Deputy District Attorney for Bucks County who counsels school entities in all matters related to special education litigation, with a special emphasis on the use of technology in education and advising practical solutions that reduce liability while harnessing the benefits of new technology. 

Conn is a seasoned litigator who has represented public entities of almost every kind, including county agencies, townships, boroughs, school districts and municipal authorities in a variety of venues, from administrative hearings to appeals before the Pennsylvania Supreme Court.

Warner represents schools in all types of matters of special education and related litigation. He also dedicates a significant amount of time providing in-service training to school entities and at industry conferences discussing topical operational and legal issues in special education. 

Sweet, Stevens, Katz & Williams, LLP was formed in 1995 by nine experienced education lawyers who created the first private law practice in Pennsylvania dedicated entirely to Education Law.  Since then, the firm has grown to 16 attorneys who represent over 290 school and municipal entities as Solicitors or as Special Counsel in more than 50 counties throughout Pennsylvania.
