Excellent Attorney
Mr. Wallace was my Childs G.A.L on a case. Our attorney was advising to plea instead of taking it to trial. Mr. Wallace drove over 2 hours to go over our case and show us the evidence. We decided to take our case to trial and WON thanks to Mr. Wallace. He is down to earth and very easy to talk to and we never had a problem getting ahold of him. He really goes above and beyond for the child.

Did exactly what he said he could do for my son!
Attorney Wallace and his team went to bat for my son against a school district that has consistently let him down and refused to follow the special education laws. He was able to get the school district to provide services that were never offered to us before and also help us put together an iep that he can succeed with. He explained everything and put our minds at ease through the whole process. He is definitely not afraid to fight for what is right and why he believes in.

Excellent special education lawyer!
My family has had a terrible experience trying to get the appropriate services through our public school system for our son who has special needs. Jason has helped our son tremendously. Special needs parents are a learn as you go community, and it is a wonderful feeling knowing that Jason is on your team to support you and your child. I would first like to point out that he is the perfect combination that anyone would want in a lawyer. He is incredibly intelligent, knows the law by heart (can cite the law during debates), is intimidated by no one, and truly CARES! He is dedicated and will never back down because he is passionate about helping his clients have their best chance for a successful life. Not only does Jason fight for what I think my son needs, but also informs me on the options that should be offered to my son (such as goals to be added on my son's IEP, an IEE, recommended a specific advocate, information districts have no right to etc.). I 100% recommend Jason to any of you who need help helping your children

He Won My Appeal
Mr. Wallace did his best to win my appeal and I appreciate all the hard work that went into this. Finally, I have a light at the end of a 10 year tunnel. Would recommend him highly.

Jason has a passion for kids and families
From the initial consultation, I found Jason to be attentive, a good listener and very experienced with strategies to help my child and I exercise our rights and receive compensation. This could not have happened without his committment to researching and implementing the best legal strategies for a win on my child's behalf! Thank you!

works wonders and an amazing attorney
We were having issues with a school and the way they were treating my child, she has a disability that the school said they could handle from the jump. I had a parent advocate get involved in my case and has been for over a year but everything the parent advocate and I have tried wasn't working in the best interest of my child. The school was still not "playing nice" I located Jason through this site sent him an email and he called me with 5 minutes of the email (amazing response time). After meeting with him and his team they took on our case that has not been easy and we keep getting more and more curve balls thrown in our direction but Jason has dealt with each and everyone. His knowledge, caring and sense of humor made everything a lot easier to deal with. I would hire him again in a heart beat and not even think twice, he has a real passion for kids and it shows! I can't express enough gratitude with everything he has done for my daughter just absolutely amazing! The case is not over we still have a few more hurdles to climb but we have one complete and it was a great outcome. He explains exactly what to expect and doesn't give any false hope. Amazing work Jason!! Thank you so very much for everything you are doing for my daughter to get her the education she deserves!

Honest, Fantastic Attorney!
Our family retained Jason Wallace for our case against a school district when we were concerned about our child's well being, how to obtain special education services and the school not offering services for our child, despite many requests. We were at a loss on how to get help and sought to retain attorney services. We contacted Mr. Wallace and his team and they contacted us back immediately, but set the consultation within days, working with our busy schedules for an evening visit. He is professional, effective, honest and extremely hard-working. I was fearful of attending meetings at the school and the school was, at the least, very intimidating in their approach to our family. My children and my family trust him to handle our case with care. He has integrity, he is honest, he is committed to his clients and ensuring first and foremost that we have fair treatment. No matter what the school district and their attorneys have "thrown" at us, he finds the root cause of the matter and establishes a solution. His experience and knowledge of Special Education Law comes through as he gives expert legal advice and personalized client services. He continues to attempt negotiations and contest and advocate on behalf of our family for the rights of our child. Our family has the utmost, total respect for him and his partner Daniel Basche. They are handling our family and our case with extreme care. He is a top-notch education attorney in northeast Ohio and is making such a positive difference by standing up for the rights of children in the educational system.

Passionate, Energetic lawyer
Mr. Wallace is a knowledgeable and passionate lawyer. There are very few lawyers who are experts in Education Law, but Mr. Wallace is one of them. We were impressed with the depth of his knowledge and attention to event the small details of the case. He is very passionate and wants what is best for the client. He did not pressure us when we had to make decisions on the case but gave us the information for us to make the best decisions for our family. He is very ethical with how he dealt with us and always stuck to facts and the truth of the case. I would definitely recommend Mr. Wallace for an attorney.

Highly Recommended in a School Case
I highly recommend Jason Wallace as your attorney. I was very new to the whole legal process and didn’t know where to turn when my child and I began having significant issues with his school. I was referred to Jason Wallace by a close family friend and I am so thankful. He quickly made time to meet with me personally and ease my fears. He was able to explain the entire process to me in a way that I could understand, and he kept me well informed every step of the way. He was honest and fought hard for us. We even ended up with a better outcome than I expected! I truly believe his knowledge, preparation, and dedication to my case made the difference.

Recommended Akron Attorney
Jason was referred to me by a co-worker, He was a wealth of information during our first meeting. He told me what to expect, what COULD happen, stated he would do the best he could for me and made no false promises. The day of court was confident and knowledgable. He kept me calm and the outcome was more than I could have hoped for. Even the Judge was impressed, as I left the court room, the Judge commented on what a good job Jason did for me. I hope that I don't need him again, but was glad that I had him. If the need does arise again, or if I can refer another person in need of his services - I will gladly do so. I trust his career will be sucessful.

HARDEST WORKING ATTORNEY ALIVE
Jason has done an exceptional job for me when I was in need of experienced representation more than ever. I cannot thank him enough for fighting for me when my rights and freedoms were in jeapordy of being taken from me . He has kept me confident and aware during the process. From the first meeting through the entire case, I was never left in the dark, felt alone or unsure of what to expect. His preparation, knowledge, confidence and experience is not only what is behind my recommendation, but his commitment to the entire case is even more important. There is no doubt that Jason is my only choice for legal reprentation in any situation. Thank you Jason for all your hard work.

A superb Lawyer!
I am extremely grateful to Attorney Jason Wallace for his guidance, support, and generosity in helping me get through some very difficult legal matters. Attorney Wallace was generous with his time on the phone, gave me sound advice, and agreed to help me with my matter at a very reasonable price. A practitioner such as this you’ll want to have. This is one who provides continuity and stands by you in your darkest hour no matter what the opposing side says or fabricates. It has been a pleasure working with him and having the peace of mind of having my case in good hands. I highly recommend Attorney Jason Wallace.

The Perfect Lawyer
Jason Wallace is one of the most inspiring and godly man that we've met in a long time. He is a very professional lawyer with great morals and integrity, that my wife and i have ever encounter. He's that lawyer that gets a job done, and when you get to the end you've found a true friend. If you are ever in a courtroom Jason Wallace is the lawyer you would want and need on your side. Lawyers of today need Jason in steel in them!!!. From the beginning to end of our process he let us know what was going on also he care about which way we wanted to do things.

Hire this guy
I highly recommend hiring Jason if you need an attorney. He's highly motivated and dependable. He returned all of my calls in a timely manner and was very professional. He's a great guy with a good personality. I've had other attorneys before, but Jason was by far the best one because he treated me with respect.

Helped me when I needed it most!
Jason was there when I was down and out and got me the outcome I needed most. He was very responsive, always called me back, and explained every step along the way so I knew what to expect. I would recommend him to anyone.
