The school must do a manifestation determination - that means there has to be a meeting and determination that your son's behvaior is not a manifestation of his disability.  If this has not been done, ask the school to do it.  You may be better off with an IEP - Indivdual Education Plan - instead of a 504 - but that will depend on what is happening with your son.

Education Law
For many families, their first introduction to the legal system comes as they try to protect and enforce the rights of their children to obtain an education. An education law attorney will have experience with a host of school-related legal issues, including the education rights of special-needs children, freedom of speech issues, anti-bullying and harassment statutes, and student discipline issues. Lawyers and law firms that practice education law will also work with teachers and schools, including colleges and universities.
