I had a consultation & went over the things that had been going on over the past 2 years, with my son that is 12 years old now in Middle school in Johnston County. She was very understanding, polite, very nice. Very informative to me, as I have been doing things by the rules & laws according to special needs children in public school. She told me my choices, what she could do to assist or help me. How much it can run into and how much she needed to take on my sons case to represent us. She let me know that she would be glad to help me in any way possiable! Very good communication from the 1st time I contacted her office. I will highly recommend her!
I hired this attorney when I separated from my spouse. She and her assistant were so kind and put me at ease. I felt so much better having their help and guidance with composing a separation agreement. This attorney listened to my needs, made good suggestions, gave good advice, and was genuninely concerned for my well-being and that of my child.
I contacted Ann in September of 2013 after a terrible IEP meeting with my local school district. My daughter was diagnosed with ADHD and was held back for another year of kindergarten. We wanted to get her qualified for special education services under Other Health Impairment (OHI). The school denied our request! Ann was able to identify multiple procedural problems with the school’s IEP process. She also pointed out that my daughter’s ADHD contributed to her being held back. As the school was trying to say my daughter did not need special education services because she was currently doing well in 1st quarter of kindergarten. My daughter attends a year round school so she only has 2 weeks off between the end of the last school year and the start of the current school year. It was as if all of my daughter’s educational problems were cured during 2 weeks of summer vacation!
Ann did a thorough job of reviewing a lot of paperwork related to our case. She communicated with us and the school district on a regular basis. The end outcome so far is Ann was able to get us a “do over” on my daughters IEP. I would highly recommend Ann as an educational lawyer.
Attorney Paradis was just amazing. She worked very quickly in a very short period of time (less than 48 hour turnaround). A local hospital had filed for guardianship of my mother due to her deteriorating health condition. I was unable to have a more active role in my mother's care due to the fact that I live out of state. So, I begin to search the internet for an attorney. I found Attorney Paradis website. I called, and she answered. She perform my initial consult right then and there on the phone. She requested that I send her a copy of the legal documents that I had received, in order for her to determine whether or not she would take the case. And she did decide to take it. She went to court and allowed me to have a voice in the courtroom, when I could not be present in court. I am forever grateful for her assistance in winning my mother's case. Overall, she is an amazing Legal Professional with a heart.
