Best lawyer!

Melissa Scherer was a God-send. She was so knowledgeable of sped laws, and in my daughter’s case, speech disability. If I had a question about anything, she found the answer. What I liked the most about my experience with Ms. Scherer is that she really empowered me, the parent. She gave me knowledge so that I could in return be an advocate for my daughter. Look no further, this is the lawyer you want!

There are no words to appropriately explain how wonderful Melissa is.

There are no words to appropriately explain how wonderful Melissa is. Her passion and commitment to helping children receive special education services is amazing. Melissa has been such a blessing to my family’s life. Her knowledge of the special education system and process is astounding. She has been my voice of reason and calming center when my mama emotions take over. Her eloquent words and powers of persuasion helped shift the school districts dialog to serving in the best interest of my child. I don’t know what I would have done without her. If you are looking for a sped lawyer to represent you and your child, look no further!!!

Thank you for fighting and protect the rights of our son.

Melissa Thank you returned us peace and especially to our son in difficult times. Our son is now immensely happy at school. Thank you for fighting and protect the rights of our son. May God give you health so you can continue to defend the rights of special education children. You’re the best lawyer! THANK YOU!

One of the BEST investments for our child

“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!”

Such a blessing to our Family!

“Family & Special Education Attorney, Melissa Scherer has been a blessing to our family. She has an amazing back ground in Diagnostic Education and is very knowledgeable in all areas of Special Education Law.
Our son’s situation at School had become frustrating and I knew something wasn’t right when it came to my child’s IEP goals and services. Melissa took the time to meet with my family, got to know my son and researched his prior ARD paperwork and IEP goals.
Melissa attended all meetings and responded to all school e-mail correspondence. By the end of our Annual ARD we received ALL of the services that my son qualified for but was not receiving prior to her representation. My son has also received additional services, has been maintaining in the General Education setting and has even qualified for the Gifted and Talented Program.
As I sit and write this, I am overwhelmed with tears of joy because of all the progress that my son has made, and I know that without Melissa’s help none of this would have been possible for my son. In my son’s own words, he now tells me that he “feels normal again and is happy to be in a regular classroom with friends.”
I can’t say enough good things about Melissa and I would absolutely, without a doubt refer her to friends, family and anyone else in need of her services.”
