Mandy's expertise and attention to detail is only surpassed by her client dedication and commitment to achieving the best possible results. In an extraordinarily short period of time, Mandy not only gained control of the matters at hand, but she took command of the case in such a way that it brought a resolve that we simply could not have imagined. We are so incredibly grateful for all Mandy did for us and our son and could not recommend her or her services more highly.

Mandy was hired to litigate on behalf of a special education student and the high school district where he resided. Mandy was a personal referral from a friend of mine, as well as, a being referred to me by a private high school director. She is well-known and highly respected in her field of special education law. There were issues regarding FAPE, 504, ADA, and discrimination on the table when Mandy began her work for my family. Luckily, thanks to Mandy's tireless work on our behalf, we were able to reach settlement with the district, out of court. Mandy is professional, genuinely concerned about her clients' well-being, diligent in her research, and steadfast in her convictions about helping her clients' achieve their goals.

I endorse this lawyer. I worked closely with Ms. Leigh on several Education legal matters and she is by far the best attorney in this field for several outstanding reasons: First, she is highly skilled and an excellent negotiator; Second she is very tenacious and persevere; Third, her ethics and conduct is beyond reproach and she always puts the interests of her clients first. I wish more practitioners possessed her skills and dedication. I look forward to working with her in the future.
