Attorney Sears and his Paralegal Gwen was such a big help for my autistic daughters IEP. They are so caring and understanding about your child's needs. I am so glad we found them . I highly recommend Attorney Sears!

We are parents of children with disabilities that qualify them for Individualized Education Programs (IEPs). We encountered significant IEP hurdles with our school system this year and knew we were in need of an attorney to help us navigate this journey. We couldn't have anyone better on our side than Shane Sears! He was very responsive, extremely knowledgeable, thorough, and successfully helped us in working towards getting the best and most appropriate IEPs in place for our children. Because of his work we were also able to avoid filing Due Process and needing to take our case to court---this also helped preserve an amicable relationship with our school system. I would consider that a huge WIN WIN!
I can highly recommend Shane Sears- our family was very blessed to have him advocate for our children!

I was referred to Mr. Sears by a BCBA that my son is working with. I e-mailed and left and voicemail with Mr. Sears and he called back in what seemed like immediately. He listened to my concerns about my sons education issues with his school and that they were not providing a service that he was entitled to and he took on the case. The process took about a month or two and now my son is receiving what he needs at school. He kept me updated with everything that was happening during the process. Mr. Sears was patient and understanding and answered every question and concern that I had and I am very grateful! Thank you for all that you do!

Attorney Sears did a great job representing my case and I will use him again if the opportunity presents itself. I couldn't be happier with his professionalism, straightforwardness, and results. I would highly recommend him to anyone in need of a good attorney.

Attorney Shane Sears kept me abreast of my case step by step. I never had to wonder about my case status which was very comforting. He was very knowledgeable about my case type and was also humble enough to bring in an expert for the areas in which he had questions. He spent over a year fighting for my rights and won my case. After spending so much time with Attorney Sears and his lovely staff...I admit I may miss them a bit moving forward. God bless the Sears Firm.

We are so thankful for Shane and his staff. He helped guide us so much and was an advocate to get my child the educational services she needs. I wish we would have found him a few years earlier.

Mr Sears was extremely helpful, knowledgeable, and straightforward. He was able to allay (or confirm) our concerns, explain the legal ramifications for what we were trying to do, and helped coordinate with the other party to help us get the result we were looking for.

I have a child in another school district than I teach in so I was reluctant to hire an attorney. After awhile I had no choice because the school would not work with us, Shane did a great job of putting us at ease and listening to the problems we were having. He could see where we were coming from and help us reach a resolution with the system even after COVID19 interfered with the schooling and process.He constantly looks out for you so you are not taken advantage and treated fairly by the other parties involved. If you are having a problem, you want him on your side to help. He is an outstanding attorney.

I am so thankful that I attended a seminar in May 2018 that gave incite on the difference between a 504 vs. IEP. Now fast forward to 2020. We needed Mr. Sears to help us with our son due him having Dyslexia, Dysgraphia and Dyscalculia. He did an excellent job handling our case and would highly recommended him to other parents that may need assistance helping advocate for your child/children.

I hired Shane to help me with my daughter and her needs in the classroom setting. I wish I had done this a lot sooner! Shane and his staff are so professional and a pleasure to work with. He is very straightforward, and keeps his clients informed with every step of the process. He is very thorough and explains the process completely. Very knowledgeable and cares about his clients. Would highly recommend!!
