Sadly I did not get anywhere negotiating my child's school district with Hans. He ended up dismissing my case saying he had already put too much time to recoup his costs but with promises he would re-file and now won't return anyone's calls pertaining to us...the school...the educational evaluator....me... no one.
Also he was not aware of a key change in the law that occurred July 2014...it was the school district's attorney that clued *him* in! Surprising for someone seemingly so eloquent...

Hans Gillinger provided thorough information enabling us to make timely decisions with confidence that we were meeting compliance guidelines. His professionalism is outstanding!

Hans is a caring, ethical professional, able to think "out-of-the-box" and works tirelessly until the job and each detail and task is completed. He is generous in his explanations of legal strategies and the why and why not of each step. He listens to others on the team and coalesces ideas for sound results. He explains the ramifications of each decision option with an eye to integrity and ethics and long term and short term affect as well as the law.
