What Our Clients Are Saying
“We were fortunate to have the Wiscarson firm on our side after our public school district resisted accommodations for our child despite a clear diagnosis and supporting documents. I highly recommend them for anyone going through a similar situation. They are experts in education law and well respected.”
“Words can’t describe how much better we feel knowing that someone is willing to help us get our son’s educational needs met. I must admit — it was pretty awesome to watch you in action. So thank you again for all that you’ve done for us.”
“I wanted to thank you for all of your time spent helping our son. I don’t know how we would have made it without you. I really appreciate it.”
“I would like to thank you for all your help this year. He has made tremendous progress this year. Although there is still work to be done, the school situation is 100% better than it was when I met you. I am not sure where we would be if I had not met you.”
“Words cannot express our gratitude to you… He is happy at school, loves riding the bus, reports to his mother that he is having “the best day ever” at school.”
When we learned that the general education placement was questioned by the elementary school, we realized that we needed additional help and advice. We contacted Diane Wiscarson and were from the beginning impressed by her services, her vast knowledge and kindness and how thoroughly she was prepared for each meeting. She offered professional support, intervened on our behalf at the school/district and was present with us at several IEP meetings. Due to her input and her interventions our son could stay in his neighborhood school and got all needed services implemented in his IEP. Diane is a wonderful person, highly knowledgeable in special education law, she has been supporting our son’s needs and even though she is a very kind person, she fights for your children’s needs. When it was time for our son to transition to middle school Diane again was a great help and advocated at the transition meetings and succeeded to receive for him the support he required at his new school. Her fees are very reasonable and her wonderful office staff and she are easy to reach for any questions. She relentlessly advocated for our son’s needs with the school, district and their attorney. We can highly recommend her, with her help our son has been able to thrive at his neighborhood schools.
