    Brilliant, Caring, Empathetic & Dedicated Attorney for Children with Special Needs. Ms. Hertog has been an amazing asset for my son and I. She has consistently exceeded my expectations since our initial consultation. She immediately developed and executed her plan to assist my son to get the education and support services he requires. We have been misled and misinformed for years by the school district, despite all of the futile time and effort spent with ,IEP's, meetings, and complaints, I just was not satisfied with my child's progress, services, and placement. Ms. Hertog quickly identified the problems and revealed the multiple violations my son endured by the district. Without Ms. Hertog's expertise, this inappropriate education and treatment would have continued indefinitely. Her training, skills, knowledge, and expertise were exactly what we needed. She saved our son!! Due to Ms. Hertog's dedication, I feel she has empowered us to finally give him a fighting chance in life. We now have transparency with the district, opportunities for a better, appropriate education and placement in an environment where we believe he will be able to thrive. I have referred Ms. Hertog to several families in situations similar to ours. My only regret is that we didn't know about her years ago. Ms. Hertog is an phenomenal advocate and she is right there with you during the entire process. She keeps you informed during each phase of the case and ensures you understand every detail. We are eternally grateful and thankful to Ms. Hertog!!!

    We were very happy and satisfied the way Allison worked with our case. She helped us to get the compensatory education for our kindergartener autistic kid. She listened to us and make sure of that we understand our rights. Our son will not be compensated for the lost of services that the school did not provided. But when we hire Allison my son got what he deserved. We really recommend her service.Thank you so much!

    Allison has been such a blessing to my family. After requesting for several years that the public school system help my sons, Allison came highly recommended and hiring her has been the best investment ever. She has gone above & beyond the call of duty to ensure my sons get the best education possible. I now know that my special needs sons will reach their fullest potential. Thank you Allison for being my sons guardian angel.

    Allison has been a great help to me and my family. She was not super aggressive but when it was needed she fought with the school district to get services my daughter! I would definitely recommend her.

    Ms. Hertog is a great lawyer whose expertise is in special education law and its implementation in the school system. She really made a difference in my daughter's future. I hired Ms. Hertog to help with an issue that involved my high functioning autistic child whose accommodations and behavior plan were being poorly implemented. As a result, she was not receiving an appropriate education and her behavior was deteriorating. I was very impressed with the way Ms. Hertog interacted and negotiated with the public school. Ms. Hertog was forthcoming and honest about my child’s rights under the law as well as workable outcomes with the school. Investing in Ms. Hertog’s services was the best thing I could have done for my child’s future. The school wanted a maximum restrictive environment, a far cry from the Least Restrictive Environment under IDEA. My child is now happy and using our increased McKay scholarship money in an appropriate setting. If you live in the Miami area and need help maneuvering the roadblocks in your child’s special education, Allison Hertog can make a difference.

    Allison represented my wife and I during our latest IEP meetings for our son. He was getting ready to transition from elementary to middle school. We have been through the IEP process of reviewing and establishing goals for a number of years. However, we did not feel that we were maximizing the process. Poor goals and non meaningful results seemed to be the norm. Allison was recommended by a friend and we discussed our situation with Allison in person. She provided a very realistic POV on our expectations. Where did our son stand, is he getting all the assistance he is eligible for, have we asked for the right assistance, what can we demand and expect. In explaining and answering our questions, Alison was knowledgable and honest. In our meetings with the school, Alison was professional and earned the respect of the school administrators. I can't emphasize this enough, as we have had legal representation previously and this was a disaster. Previous representation was belligerent and unprofessional. We lost respect and the meetings were non-productive. As a parent commenting on Allison, I have a good perspective of the right way and the wrong way to work productively with school administrators. Allison will work the right way for the benefit of your child.
