What Our Clients Are Saying
“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.”
Good afternoon. I have attached [my son’s] recent success, over 500 points possible in math last 6 weeks and he scored 97%. Teacher said he has never seen anything like it in his class (nearly 20 years experience) and [my son] is helping other students in the class when he finishes his work. None of this wold be possible if Lidia and your staff had not helped us put all the correct safeguards in place in his IEP. Thank you!
“If you are searching for a special needs attorney, Diane is hands down the best! She is smart, honest, organized and well respected! Nothing gets by Diane. She truly cares about kids and is doing landscape changing work for children experiencing disabilities. If you have come to the place where you are reaching out for the support of an attorney, go with the best!!!”
“Diane did a great job! We worked hard together in order to get our son properly placed. I would recommend her services and if needed in the future will be coming back!”
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.
“This attorney doesn’t suffer the company of fools. She is well informed and will make you look silly if you are not, if you are rivals. Diane is very competent, compassionate, and worth every buck that is spent for her services. Her reputation precedes her not only among her peers, but also within the educational environment in which she moves. If I required her services again, I would run and not walk, to her office doors.”
