Can I deduct my lawyer fee for fight for services for my deaf son from the school district

Legal fees are generally not deductible on a personal 1040 return.

There are three significant exceptions

  • To produce or collect income that must be included in your gross income,

  • To manage, conserve, or maintain property held for producing such income, or

  • To determine, contest, pay, or claim a refund of any tax.

    Given the above your lawyer fee would unfortunately not be deductible
