"Melissa was an ideal attorney for helping us navigate and advocate for our daughter's 504 dyslexia services. It was a challenge and I strongly believe we would not have prevailed without her extreme preparation and exquisite knowledge of the law, child rights in the school, dyslexia, and negotiation skills. She is a wonderful communicator, knowledgeable, savvy tactician, and above all wants what is best for the child and parent. I would not hesitate to recommend her in the highest regard. Thank you, Melissa!"
