What Our Clients Are Saying
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.
“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.”
“Thank you for your help and for what you do for our kids. Have a great day.”
“I want to thank you Diane. You have been a great support to our family! Your counsel has been a great help to me personally because advocating for [our son] alone has not been successful. I now feel like we are actually getting somewhere in the process. Before, I was like a deer caught in the headlights. Thank you again – you have been a godsend!”
“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.”
We simply cannot thank you and Lidia enough for educating and guiding us through all the steps required when putting these things in place. The manner in which you provided counsel was professional, timely, and in layman’s terms which we truly appreciate. Overall our experience with Wiscarson was excellent and we will certainly recommend your services to other families we know, who are about to begin the same process. Again, thank you so much.
