We have a child with special needs, and have been working with Carla over the past few years to appropriately place our son in the correct educational settings as he has grown and his needs have changed. Carla not only has vast expertise in special education law, but she is also a tireless advocate for children's educational rights, and a truly compassionate individual. Carla is a consummate professional and very responsive, but just as importantly, she is caring and easy to work with during what can be a very emotional, difficult time for parents.

Carla did a wonderful job handling my case against the local school system. She was thorough, compassionate and took the time needed to speak to both me and my son to make sure she understood every aspect of the case. She gave great advice, was always available to answer questions and give guidance. She was fair in her fees and extremely knowledgeable. She really cares about getting children the services they need and deserve. We were extremely satisfied with her services. My son finally got the services he deserved and is flourishing in his new placement. I highly recommend her! She is by far the best attorney I have ever used.

My wife and I have retained several different lawyers and advocates over the past 8 years on behalf of our son who was diagnosed at age two with PDD-NOS. Carla was by far the best.
Carla has a strong understanding of special education law, excellent oral and written communication skills, and an outstanding attention to detail. She came to each meeting with the school fully prepared and with the issues to be discussed thoroughly researched from a legal perspective.
Carla kept us apprised throughout our negotiations with the school system and after each meeting provided us with detailed session notes. Due to Carlaâ€™s efforts my wife and I were able to avoid extensive litigation and reached an amicable agreement with the school system.
But by far, Carlaâ€™s best attribute is that she is highly personable and engaged. While Carla has a busy practice, each time we interacted with her we felt as if our son was the only child on her caseload. We very much trust her judgment, and have recommended her to friends.
