We have been working with Ms. Tiffany for several years now. We were faced with a due process lawsuit that the district had filed against us over placement. We knew we needed strong representation. Ms. Tiffany came highly recommended by a fellow parent. Thanks to Ms. Tiffany's skillful negotiations with the district, she turned the tables and they were willing to settle. Without this settlement, our son would have ended up in a highly inappropriate placement.
Ms. Tiffany continues to follow our son's case, keeping track of his educational progress. At the IEP meetings, she is not afraid to ask the hard questions and demand accountability.
In my opinion, expertise is not enough for an attorney in special education. Ms. Tiffany takes the time to listen to our concerns and problem solve the best solutions for our son. This is an art that takes skill, dedication, and above all a great kindness of heart.
Marcy Tiffany is absolutely one of the most responsive, smart, excellent attorneys I have ever worked with. I have hired Marcy on three separate occassions, every time she has done an outstanding job. She understands special education law more than anyon else I have met and will fight for your child every step of the way. She takes the time to explain the process to her clients and what the options are as well as all potential outcomes. I always knew Marcy was in my corner and she has obtained excellent results everytime I have had to hire her. Obtaining good quality services for your child can be extremely difficult today, but Marcy understands the process and is an incredible advocate for children with special needs. I must also mention her paralegal Jennifer, who is also an amazing asset to the clients. Jennifer and Marcy together make an incredible team and they truly believe in what they are doing and never stop trying to obtain the best results for their clients. While no attorney can guarantee results, I believe Marcy and Jennifer will do everything in their power to fight for a positive result. I cannot recommend this office enough -- if you have a special needs child and are in need of representation, do not hesitate to hire Marcy Tiffany.
Marcy Tiffany has been our attorney since 2006 and we have been extremely happy with her. She takes the time getting to know us and our child with special needs, explaining the legal process, and our game plan. She looks very sweet but when we went to a mediation, did she turn into a tiger! We ended up settling, but I received so much services for my son. She and Jen Ralph (very competent advocate/paralegal) have always gone above and beyond for me and my son. Because of a hard-working attorney like her and a dedicated paralegal like Jen, my son now can speak very well and fluently. We also found out he has a normal IQ and he is on his way to a brighter future. I am so happy and feel so blessed I found Marcy and Jen. My son with special needs says both of them are our guardian angels!!!!! They not only gave us a hope but our life back. I highly recommend Marcy Tiffany for a special education attorney.
We had gotten tired of useless, bank account sucking, IEP meetings with a very high profile lawyer in the OC area before we were referred to Marcy Tiffany. In fact, we had almost given up fighting for our child. Marcy took our case and filed due process and we reached a settlement quickly. She has represented us on a recent filing and again helped us reach another great settlement. We are forever grateful
for this humble, generous woman who fights hard! She is an amazing negotiator. I actually get to sleep at nights because of her!!!!! She will continue to be our go to person if further disputes arise. For now we couldn't be happier!
Ms. Tiffany is on an incredibly high horse, as she is married to a federal judge and will make sure all school district attorneys she is dealing with on your child's case know this. I made a huge mistake, out of desperation, of entrusting my child's case with this attorney and my child was jammed. I was referred to Tiffany by an LA psychologist B.J. Freeman - who I was sent to by another doctor in order to have my child assessed for an upcoming trial with the district for her services as a child qualified with autism. At the time I was pro per - and Freeman insisted I call Tiffany. Tiffany took the case and promptly played my child right into the hands of the district's attorneys by ending Freeman's assessment of her - refusing to allow her to be assessed by any other doctor, pushing this up to deadline where I could go nowhere else for help so my child was stuck with no evidence for her hearing - and then forcing me to sign an unenforceable settlement agreement which short shrifted my child of 75% of her needed program - just to please her friends at Fagen Friedman and Fulfrost. Tiffany promised she would stay on my child's case to make sure the district kept its bargain - however within a week of getting her check (paid of course by her friends at the district) Tiffany bailed on my child completely and thew her to the wolves. Check out the case currently pending in superior court and federal court of Porter V. Winer and Tiffany and you can see what Ms. Tiffany does to her minor clients.
