Without question, Tim Sindelar is the only person who is competent and knowledgeable enough to provide the support and guidance that families of special need students require. He served our family extremely well during the years we struggled to obtain appropriate services for our grandson. He is temperate, courteous, and skilled in mediation. He speaks clearly, assesses the barriers to progress and finds resolutions against often seemingly impossible odds. I recommend Attorney Sindelar highly and unreservedly.
Being the parent of a special needs child, and an attorney, at first I didn't think I would need legal representation to help us get what our child needed. I was wrong. I began researching attorneys and several advocates we had spoken with all recommended we call Tim. After one call I knew we had found the person who could help us navigate the complex waters of SPED law. His knowledge of this area of law is second to none. He wears his passion for his work and compassion for his clients on his sleeves but he also keeps you grounded and reasonable. I have heard Tim speak at a few conferences held for both school officials and attorneys and have seen first hand the respect others in the field have for him, and on both sides of the table.
We still have many years ahead of us before our child ages out of school. Tim is on speed dial. Although we hope we won't need him, I know he will always pick up the phone and listen to what we have to say. He will give us an honest assessment of where we stand as well as great advice about what steps we should take to ensure the best interest of our child.
If you think you need a lawyer to represent to your child's rights, well then you probably do. I suggest you call Tim and see what he has to say. Good luck and remember who we are fighting for.
The 4096 character limit allocated for a review is woefully insufficient to highlight how extraordinary of a man and a professional Tim Sindelar is or how much he has and continues to contribute to the world of special education. Tim is quite bluntly a walking encyclopedia of knowledge, the embodiment of kindness as well as generosity, and has the ability to advocate in the toughest of situations with the most difficult of personalities (i.e. opposing counsel, special education staff, the parents, the student) with grace, composure and influence. He has the respect of professionals on all sides of the table and at all levels of experience. My family has been blessed to have Tim in our lives for many, many years. No matter how much time passes between our peaks of need, Tim responds to us in rapid fashion and with enthusiastic engagement. He genuinely cares about each client, their journey, and their outcomes. He has helped my family to achieve amazing results that were as creative as the situation demanded and as effective as the need required. He is always honest and straightforward. He has the ability to educate you and engage you in the learning experience. To sum it all up - my son would never become the amazing teen he is today without Tim's help. He is the reason I can sleep at night with a heart warmed by the knowledge that my son's needs are met and he IS reaching his potential.
Attorney Sindelar is the utmost professional and was a key component in getting matters resolved in a timely and responsive manner. Attorney Sindelar kept me up to date with all matters pertaining to my case and guided me in a cost effective and responsible manner. I would highly recommend his services.

As a parent who has hired Tim for my own child, and as a special needs attorney who has often referred families to Tim, I can say with complete confidence that Tim is the best special education attorney in Massachusetts! He really cares about the outcomes for his clients.
We have worked with Tim for over 10 years. He has been invaluable to our family in representing our son with the school system. He is extremely knowledgable and tireless in his efforts. We recommend him without hesitation.

Brilliant, extremely knowledgeable in field, very dedicated to helping our family with our special education issue. He is obviously passionate about this area of law and seemed very concerned about us. He can sometimes be gruff and hard to deal with when under stress.
Tim was extremely helpful and knowledgable in regards to my child's situation. He discussed in length all aspects of our case with us . I felt Tim always gave us his undivided attention and was very professional . More importantly, I think Tim could see how stressful my situation was to my daughter and myself and was able to ease our fears. Tim did a great job for daughter and I and I would happily recommend him to anyone in need of his services.
