    After initial denial from a high-stakes test authority, I was encountering some difficulties for an appeal: First, there are only a few attorneys available who handle this type of appeal. Second, I was also very desperate due to the coming deadline. Third, I was eager but it seems impossible to find an attorney who is professional enough to understand my case, a very unique and difficult one, and to assist me with a better approach for rebuttal. I feel so relived with all my worries immediately after my first consult session with Allison, my SUPER-WOMEN! Allison is always responsive and approachable, outstandingly professional/knowledgable (I consider this as her superpower) and really cares about people who has disability (fight for JUSTICE). She made extremely helpful strategies for my case which helped me won two test accommodations approval. Without all her professional suggestions, her dedication, her wise strategies and all the details she had checked for me, I would not have won my appeal. I feel so blessed that I found Allison!! I highly recommend Esq. Allison Hertog to anyone who is looking for a professional attorney to fight for fairness for people who have disabilities, the group of people really deserves to be equally treated for high-takes tests by LAW!!! Allison, thank you soooo much again!!!

  • Incredible knowledge and patience to achieve an incredible outcome. Allison is very attentive, thoughtful and assertive (as needed). Her ability to work through the matter while utilizing her key contacts was essential to our success. Allison helped us receive the much needed educational help for our child in less than a month, which we had been seeking for over a year before her assistance. I would give her my highest recommendation for her services.
