Denise Rekem is very knowledgeable in the field of Special Education. I needed advice about modifying an IEP and accommodations in the public schools. She helped me understand what the school is required to do and offered many practical solutions. She is very personable and makes you feel at ease.
She is definitely the lawyer you'd want fighting for your child's rights!

When you have a special needs child, it makes the world of a difference to have an attorney by your side. But not just any attorney. Lisa Parles and Denise Rekem are not only two exceptional attorneys with expertise in education law, they are wonderful human beings.
For many years, our little boy was not getting the services, help, and support that he needed. As a result, both our son and our family suffered greatly. We felt incredibly overwhelmed, frustrated, hopeless, and confused. Our son's behaviors were becoming worse and worse and it was affecting all aspects of our lives. That was until Lisa Parles and Denise Rekem became involved. For the first time in years, we felt as though we were finally being taken seriously. It was immediately apparent to Lisa and Denise that our son was not in the appropriate placement. They referred us to two experts whose insights into our son were incredibly perceptive and accurate. These experts made observations, wrote extensive reports and outlined a plan that would best serve his educational, social and emotional needs. Their recommendations were used by Lisa and Denise to convince our school district to make the appropriate placement for our son and to obtain home support for him and our family.
When they came into our lives, they gave us hope, inspiration, and brought positive changes to our son and family. They fought for us and did not settle for anything less than what our child and family were entitled to. As soon as they became involved with our family, the district staff and personnel changed their attitudes completely. Our son is doing well in his new school and at home and our entire family dynamic has changed for the better.
