L.F. & J.F. - Parents of Adult with Autism

Thank you Lisa and Denise for helping us navigate the DDD labyrinth to get the services our son desperately needs. Your professionalism, knowledge of the system and passion for the special needs population is unmatched. We will refer your firm for many years to come. We wish you both much success and happiness.

M.D. - Mother of Adult with Autism

Words cannot explain how appreciative my husband and I are that we found Denise Rekem and Lisa Parles .Their insight and appreciation of our crisis situation got DDD to understand what we had been trying to communicate to DDD for more than 2 years.They were our voice and helped to get our son the residential placement he desperately needed.

D.B. - Mother of Special Needs Child

I just had yet another great experience with Lisa Parles and Denise Rekem. I got to where I needed to be and didn't even realize that's what our family needed. It's great when you can find people who not only know the law and the system, but, will step away and take a look at the whole situation.

A.M. - Mother of Special Needs Child

I am thankful to Denise Rekem for her hard work in helping me get my daughter accepted into Bancroft. Her professionalism, determination and persistence helped us receive the necessary state approval so quickly. She made this very emotional and difficult time significantly easier for me. I wholeheartedly recommend her services to other families.

N.H. - Mother of a Child with Autism

Lisa Parles is a phenomenal special education attorney. She was crucial in obtaining the appropriate education my child deserves. As a parent, IEP meetings are intimidating and exhausting. It was a relief for us to know she was in charge of all CST correspondence and IEP meetings. We could finally put 100% of our focus on our child and her day to day needs. What she was able to accomplish in one IEP meeting, would have taken us months to achieve. I fully trust Lisa with all of my child's educational needs and I highly recommend her to other families. 

E.F. - Mother of Special Needs Child

As parents of a special-needs child, we have found Lisa Parles to be extremely knowledgable and current on the complexities of this field. She has been very attuned to our legal needs, and is sensitive to the emotional impact of many of these issues. In the past year, Lisa guided us smoothly through the process of establishing Legal Guardianship of our child. Prior to that she had helped us on several occasions with establishing and enforcing our child's IEP. Dealing with local school systems can often be daunting and unpleasant, but Lisa really "knows the ropes" and is very well known and respected in our area for her advocacy for children of special needs. She has presented many workshops for parents as well. We have confidently recommended Lisa to many other parents, both personal acquaintances and business associates, and they have always been pleased.

T.D. - Father of Special Needs Child

We were extremely satisfied with this firm and especially Lisa Parles and her staff, under trying circumstances imposed by our school district they were able to come to a resolution in a very timely fashion, while keeping the situation very calm and professional. All this was accomplished without even taking the matter to court. We were able to settle. If you have a child with disabilities and are not happy with what your school is offering we highly recommend consulting with Lisa Parles.

M.D. - Mother of an Adult with Autism

We have a son with special needs and when it was time to file for guardianship, Lisa M. Parles was the lawyer who was highly recommended by other families and educators in the field. Once we began the multi-step process to become our son's guardians, we understood why. From our first meeting it was clear that she was VERY knowledgeable. When my husband and I met with Ms. Parles we were both emotional and overwhelmed. She was very patient and supportive--answering all of our questions clearly. There were many documents to be signed by various professionals, all of whom were extremely impressed by her attention to detail and her efficiency. Ms. Parles is very responsive to all questions and returns phone calls promptly. She is extremely knowledgeable and a consummate professional.

D.S. - Mother of Autistic Child

The words "thank you" are not enough to describe how grateful we are to Lisa Parles. Our child desperately needed an out-of-district placement into an ABA school. Lisa worked tirelessly to help us achieve this and, as a result, our son is now receiving the proper help and education he needs. He is truly flourishing in his new school! There are so many unknowns when you have a child with a diagnosis of autism. Navigating the educational path for special needs children can be daunting. Lisa goes above and beyond to help you understand the resources which are available to your child. More importantly, she will advocate for your child to get those much needed resources. I cannot recommend Lisa enough if you are the parent of a child with special needs who needs legal advice and support!

D.O. - Mother of a Special Need Child

When you have a special needs child, it makes the world of a difference to have an attorney by your side. But not just any attorney. Lisa Parles and Denise Rekem are not only two exceptional attorneys with expertise in education law, they are wonderful human beings.

For many years, our little boy was not getting the services, help, and support that he needed. As a result, both our son and our family suffered greatly. We felt incredibly overwhelmed, frustrated, hopeless, and confused. Our son's behaviors were becoming worse and worse and it was affecting all aspects of our lives. That was until Lisa Parles and Denise Rekem became involved. For the first time in years, we felt as though we were finally being taken seriously. It was immediately apparent to Lisa and Denise that our son was not in the appropriate placement. They referred us to two experts whose insights into our son were incredibly perceptive and accurate. These experts made observations, wrote extensive reports and outlined a plan that would best serve his educational, social and emotional needs. Their recommendations were used by Lisa and Denise to convince our school district to make the appropriate placement for our son and to obtain home support for him and our family.

Lisa and Denise are incredibly passionate about their work; together, they make a powerful team. When they came into our lives, they gave us hope, inspiration, and brought positive changes to our son and family. They fought for us and did not settle for anything less than what our child and family were entitled to. As soon as they became involved with our family, the district staff and personnel changed their attitudes completely. Our son is doing well in his new school and at home and our entire family dynamic has changed for the better.
