We can make a difference in the education of your child with special needs
Wiscarson Law serves a wide range of needs for individuals with disabilities.

In response to clients’ needs and requests, we expanded our services to assist with other disability-related matters. In addition to special education, Wiscarson Law can advise and assist clients with guardianship matters and with obtaining accommodations in higher education.

What Our Clients Are Saying
“We are so grateful to you for your amazing help advocating for [our daughter], and your huge heart towards us as well.”
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.
“Thanks so much for your hard work this month. I’m still kind of dazed and disbelieving at how well that last meeting seems to have gone.”
I am very pleased with the services that Diane provided and would happily use her again. The wheels were falling off the bus when it came to not just my child’s education, but every aspect of his life. Diane had a solid relationship with our school district personnel that allowed the process to get him help move very quickly. I was touched by the compassion and understanding that she brought to me as a parent, not just a client. I also greatly appreciated the practical advice she provided when laying out options. She never tried to sway me one way or the other, she just presented the factual information and what I could expect when considering different courses of action and then she supported me with the path I chose. I found her to be easily reachable and responsive to my inquiries.
“I just wanted to thank you for doing such an outstanding job in our quest to do the right thing for [our son]. When I met you, I knew that you were the right person for the job. You were always prepared and offered us the support we needed.”
“I want you to know how much I have appreciated your knowledge and support. You relate with a genuineness that is refreshing, engenders trust and certainly does not fit the stereotype of your profession. I appreciate the work that you have done for our family and always felt that you “had my back” every step of the way. I’m glad you have to keep records for 6 years because I expect we will need you in the future. I feel blessed to have found someone with such a passion for this work.”
