[[My son is in special education and I had to hire an advocate to go to meetings
with us for $100 per hour so my son could get what is legally due to him in
public school. Is this a deductable expense?]]

There is obviously a lot of information that I don't know here. My GUESS (and it is only a guess based upon the limited information that you provided here) is that this is not a deductible expense.

Again, just my guess. If you would like to provide additional information, I'll be happy to try and provide a more complete answer.
