Littman Krooks has an excellent reputation, yet my high expectations were exceeded when I became Marion Walsh's (of LK's) client. My son, "Rhys" [not his real name], was a student in a (solid) Special Education school, from which he was due to graduate in three years, when I met Marion. My research had led me to conclude that a particular Special Ed high school would be the condign one for Rhys, and I wanted to do all I could to make sure that's where he ended up. Although this high school is on the NYS "Approved List" -- meaning it is private, but Special Ed students can be placed there -- it is highly desirable and admissions are competitive; I wanted an attorney to shepherd us through the Admissions process. I contacted LK and met with someone at the firm in NYC. That attorney arranged with me to meet Marion Walsh at her office in LK's White Plains office because Marion is especially familiar with the school I wanted for my son, in addition to being experienced with every aspect of the annual IEP process, which is crucial when it comes to next-school placement. I met with Marion Walsh, who outlined what we would need to do over the next two years to give Rhys the best shot at the school I wanted for him, as well as to ensure that he be given appealing options besides that school. From that point on, Marion and her team, including Sandi Rosenbaum, were involved in Rhy's IEP meetings, making sure that these evaluations and final reports, which prospective schools would consider carefully, reflected the best view possible of Rhys's progress. Marion deftly worked as an intermediary among me, Rhys's school, and the Committee on Special Education. She pushed for having Rhys's classification changed from "Emotionally Disturbed" to "Other", and made sure his IEP cited the strong evidence that justified that change. THAT was a key reason that Rhys was accepted at the school I had hoped he would attend...where he now is a student and is thriving! During the two years I worked with Marion and her team, including Sandi Rosenbaum, they were consistently responsive -- routine emails or calls from me would get at least a quick acknowledgment within a few hours; in urgent situations, within 30 minutes -- thorough, sympathetic, and highly professional. Because we had several important meetings with the school and CSE during Covid, and those had to be Zoom calls, the meetings were particularly challenging to control - yet Marion managed to guide these meetings assertively, making essential points and being a champion for my son. I highly recommend Marion Walsh and I intend to work with her again when I next have a decision to make about Rhys's education or training options, or should any problem arise. She's a superior attorney with a first-rate team.
