What Our Clients Are Saying
Great Advocate for Special Needs Children
The team at Wiscarson Law helped us navigate the IEP process with Portland Public Schools with the result that our daughter now has a terrific placement in a safe classroom with excellent and caring instructors. I would recommend this law firm to anyone who is struggling to obtain a free and appropriate education for their special-needs child.
“I just wanted to send you a quick note letting you know that our son is graduating from high school tonight. A couple of years ago I thought that this would have been impossible, that is until we met you. Thank you for all of the work you do for families like ours.”
“After many years of being frustrated with our children’s educational experience we were referred to Wiscarson Law. Once we began working together our situation improved in significant and positive ways. We learned about all of the various educational support programs and mechanisms we could access, our communication with the schools, teachers and counselors improved and we also saw improvement in our children’s school work and self esteem. I highly recommend Wiscarson Law if you are seeking an attorney to advise you on your children’s educational needs and options.”
“Once again, thanks for all the loving care and intelligence on the behalf of [our children]. We are very grateful.”
Annie, I just wanted to formally thank you for being our advocate today during [our son's] IEP. I’m certain that without Wiscarson law, this would not have resolved so quickly. And now, we can celebrate that our beautiful son now has access to preschool just like his peers! Thank you, also to Diane for consulting with Annie and for the legacy you have built in Portland advocating for children with special needs. It’s incredible and such needed work. You all are wonderful people that we are so glad to have on our team.
“Ms. Coulter was very knowledgeable in how to strengthen my son’s IEP and Behavior Plan. She is professional and works diligently to make sure the student is set up for success in school. The advocate, Lidia, at Wiscarson Law also is excellent. Highly recommend this firm.”
