After stalling with the school district for 8 months over placement and accommodations, Georgianna was able to get us everything we had been requesting and all within a single IEP meeting. She worked HARD behind the scenes so we wouldn't have to. Wish I had known about her several IEPs ago!

After years of struggling w other attorneys to get our 10-year-old son services and the right placement for his special ed needs, Georgianna did it all within six months, and for a fair and manageable fee. Though she's a busy woman thanks to word of mouth referrals and her non-profit work, she was always attentive and quick to respond. It was clear from the beginning she was invested in our case and cared about our son. I cannot recommend her enough. Given that she's been through the system of finding the proper placement with her own child, she will fight for you like no other attorney. Today my son is thriving at school thanks largely to Georgianna.

Georgianna is the best attorney for special needs kids. She recently represented our family for my son's IEP and we were awarded everything we asked for. She even got us other services which we didn't know he qualified for. She is simply amazing and the best! She is extremely knowledged in her field and goes into an IEP like a fighter. She doesn't take no for an answer and will fight for you till you get your child's needs taken care of. Her staff (Isabel ) is extremely helpful and makes sure all your questions and concerns are taken care of right away ( a pleasure to deal with) . They are super quick to answer any questions and emails. It's been such a pleasant experience having Georgianna represent our family. I highly recommend her to any parent who is looking for an attorney for special needs children.

Georgianna Junco Kelman is representing my son "Ean" to Kinder at LAUSD for 2015-2016 school year. She positive and enthusiastic and is second to none. If you are a parent who is in need of help in your child's IEP, look no further. Goeorginana has helped us so much with her guidance and patience. Thank you!

First off, I want to start by saying how amazing she is at shAt she does and her passion for it shows. Her confidence and determination shows the minuet you meet her. You know you will be in great hands.
Lee hired mrs kelman for our sons IEP. We were not in her area but she did take on our case and we are so glad she did. Our child was completely a wreck with the way the school was not following the IEP. As a parent, I felt lost and had no idea what the next step would be. She helped us get everything we were promised plus more. Never felt such a relief before. Having her there was the best decision we made. The school district was so impressed with her professionalism that they asked where I found her. The IEP was the best they've ever had with a lawyer present. She did such an amazing job, we hired her for our second child's IEP. Another successful one because of her. My children will be starting off this school year next week and we are all excited to know that they will be getting all the services they need because mrs kelman was our guide to making sure they did. I would HIGHLY RECOMMEND mrs kelman to anyone. She's an extravagant lawyer and a person that you see actually cares! I will be using her again in the future for sure.

After consulting others who gave me no hope, she was ready and willing to take the case against the school district fearlessly.
Exceptional listener and communicator who effectively conveys information verbally and in writing via email, even on weekends. I was overjoyed on how a warrior parent who has first-hand experience with autism won my case. Thank you for an amazing opportunity to a better education for my severe autistic daughter Dalyla, couldn't have done it without your help :)

The bottom line: Georgianna is your warrior. She won't give up and she is not a compromiser, unless your child got everything she is entitled to. I hired her firm literally three days before our IEP and she poured through the paperwork in two days and got us a MAXIMUM desired services including a one on one private agency aid. I HIGHLY recommend her to all parents of special needs kids.

I want to say as a mother who has a child with special needs, Georgianna's has taken the weight of the world off my shoulders. I have hope that my child is being taken care of, someone fighting for him besides his father and I. Georginna knows the legal side and emotional side of fighting for the rights of a child and she won't take no for an answer. I cannot say enough about her professionalism, you wont be disappointed.

I first heard about Georgianna during the school assessment to determine if the student needs an IEP. During the meeting, one of the assessors mentioned that Georgianna was a bulldog and "got stuff done." The assessor noted that she was the best she'd seen. After our meeting, which was held on a Saturday, I emailed Georgianna to see if she could take our case. She responded within two hours of my email to her. We quickly met up and charged forward. Georgianna knew the right people to connect with before even going into the IEP, so that there would be no surprises during our meeting. She did a great job of setting the pace and representing our family - her years of experience were quite helpful in knowing what services were actually available. It was a smooth meeting and we got the best outcome possible because of her work and the foundation she set for our case. I very much appreciate her work and would recommend her to anyone.

Georgianna has been my lawyer through two IEP and due processes, both times getting me the outcome I wanted with very little hassle. She was always well informed and knowledgeable about the system, my case and where it stood. I appreciate that she always responded my emails and phone calls in a timely manner. I felt respected, heard and understood by Georgianna and because she was always so on top of the case, she truly alleviated a lot of stress and anxiety for me. I definitely recommend Georgianna Junco Kelman.
