"From the first phone conversation Lillian's expertise in special education came through loud and clear. She is very knowledgeable in both the law and special education. Lillian was clear on what we needed to do and was there for us every step of the way to fight for our son's education. Lillian was straight forward yet very understanding to our unique battle with the school system. From the moment her first communication was sent to the school system things started falling into place. Until finding Lillian we were much like our son 'lost in the system' with not a single person to help. Lillian was the missing piece to the puzzle and is a pleasure to work with."
