Peg is AWESOME. We have used her for several years and find her to be an expert in her field. She is professional, helpful, extremely knowledgeable, and respected by the IEP team. Our daughter has ASD (Asperger's Syndrome) and Peg has attended all her IEPs and they are NOT painful or stressful as I feel that I have someone with supreme knowledge and excellence representing me.
Peggy helped us fight through a horrible placement for our child. She not only got us to an ideal setting, but got the district to make good on missed services. We threatened filing once, filed and mediated once, and filed a successful complaint with the CDE. 3 for 3 in our son's favor.
Ms. Broussard helped my family through a very difficult situation with our child's special education needs. She was thorough, knowledgeable and got results quickly.
Peggy helped us not to be railroaded by a school district that didn't want to meet our son's needs six years ago and gave us great advice to help in a similar situation recently. I talked with a multitude of attorneys by phone before deciding on Peggy six years ago and was impressed with her no nonsense, practical approach. She sincerely helps average parents to understand and get what they need from the often self-serving school system. I would fully recommend Margaret Broussard for anyone looking for help navigating the legalities of the special education system.
Peggy was absolutely WONDERFUL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! She handled our daughter's case professionally and masterfully. She was in constant contact, easy to work with and gave us a realistic approach and explanation of the entire process. I would (and Have) recommend her as an excellent lawyer.
Margaret Broussard represented our son so that he could receive services from our local school district. While the district repeatedly failed to help us, once we hired Margaret the district attitude changed immediately. My son now has the help he needs because of Margaret. She is amazing!
