What Our Clients Are Saying
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.
“We appreciate your taking the time to share your expertise and experience with us. If our daughter decides to use legal representation, you’ll be the one.”
“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.”
“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.”
“… the IEP meeting this AM went very well, with all of his teachers raving about his progress on every front. He spends 90% of his time in the gen ed classroom, and he is at grade level in all his work. He is gifted in math, and just won a poetry contest! Just wanted you to know that you were on the side of right with this one, and we sure got the right answer for him!”
“Taylar helped me so much… Wiscarson Law’s services were professional, timely, and beyond helpful. I would recommend them to anyone!”
