I retained Marcy 5 years ago and the only regret I have is not doing it sooner. She has changed our lives for the better. The school dist. has us backed in a corner. With Marcy they didn't stand a chance. They did not even want to go into deliberations, now she had them backed into a corner. Our lives suddenly changed that day. I will not go to an IEP without her representation there. It is one of the best decisions I ever made in my life. My son is better for it. Thank you Marcy and staff! You are my angels here on earth :)
Marcy Tiffany is an outstanding lawyer specializing special education law.
We faced a very difficult situation with the school district and how they treated our special needs child. His unique disability masked his capabilities. The school district was unable to support his needs and attempted to outsource him to a program that was inadequate for him.
Ms. Tiffany took the time to explain his legal rights and the process to secure the right services for growth and development. We had no previous experience with a due process complaint and needed the guidance and professionalism of Ms. Tiffany and Jennifer Ralph to navigate the steps to ensure a good outcome for our child. At every turn in our journey, Ms. Tiffany and Ms. Ralph were the best advocates ever - asking all the tough questions, planning and preparing for meetings and making sure every option was considered.
Beyond Ms. Tiffany’s exceptional knowledge and negotiation skills, she is a person who is invested in the best outcomes for her clients. She takes the time to really understand her clients’ needs and provides terrific counsel to access the best plan for each individual.
Ms. Tiffany worked professionally with the school district lawyer and hearing officer to secure a settlement that provided services which made a significant difference in our child’s life.
We highly recommend Marcy Tiffany and her professional team to parents or family members seeking an advocate for their loved ones that deserve to be treated with respect and to seek a brighter future.
Year after year, we have been told by other lawyers and are school district what are son can't have for his disabilities. Even though in Wrights Law, says it's a law, and he needs it for his disabilities. Until we were referred to Marcy and Tiffany by a person with a professional Special Education background. Oh my god, we couldn't be more appreciative towards Marcy and Jen going over all our son's IEP's and asking us questions! This way they could learn about our son and his special needs. When we went to mediation with Marcy, she handled the settlement case very professional. She fought and got our son what he needed. We see a big change for the better in our son! Therefore, we will stay with MarcyTiffany to keep helping our son with his education. Thanks to Marcy, Jen, and David!!
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!
