Im so thankful for the help advice and expertise that I was given by Leigh Law Group. I can proudly say that they fight for their clients rights and do a great job doing so. When I met with Mandy I can say that she was kind understanding and had my best interests at heart. Mandy will suggest what is best for the client and produce results. She is extremely knowledgeable in education law and willing to help anyone who comes her way. If you need help and are looking for the best representation you can get Leigh Law Group is the firm youre looking for.

Leigh Law group has helped us tremendously We have depended on them with great success Mandy Jay Damien and their associates have all been very professional and we won our case on 17 counts The school district appealed and then we won the appeal in federal court Now our child is getting the access to education that they deserve My only regret is not calling Leigh Law sooner. We highly encourage you to start documenting the details of your claim and call Leigh Law today.

I worked with Mandy Leigh directly. She was an expert on our school district and insisted on taking my case herself. She and her team helped my 2 children in so many ways. She was and continues to be a strong advocate for my children hiring her was a game changer. Without her special education knowledge and insistence on getting my children what they needed I am certain my children would not have been able to get theschool based attention they require. She created a roadmap for me and explained every step of the process. She approached each IEP team meeting thoroughly prepared. She uncovered examples of how my children were falling behind that the school never showed me. Mandy advocated strongly for both of my children and their unique needs. Her specific knowledge of special education law and her passion to do what is right enabled her to navigate a very challenging school IEP team and made me feel incredibly supported. If you are a parent Mandy and her team work tirelessly for families and their integrity and passion for their clients is truly amazing. Any parent who needs help with their childs school is trying to decide between an advocate or an attorney or just has a sense something is not quite right should consider this firm. After years of constant worry and sleepless nights I now finally feel a great sense of relief. My only regret is not hiring them 3 years sooner.

We are very grateful for the legal help that Damien and Leigh Law Group staff provided to our family. Damiens expertise and rich experience in the Education law clear communication and dedication were instrumental in getting the favorable outcome that our child deserved we wholeheartedly recommend Leigh Law Group and Damiens services to any parents seeking help for top-notch legal representation for their children.We found Leigh Law on the Internet it was a very stressful time for us as we never experienced the situation that our child put himself in and had very limited time to find a lawyer. In the first consultation from the questions Damien asked us and the potential strategy he mentioned we immediately felt that he knew this area very well. He already gave us useful guidance and tips at the free consultation meeting. After we signed the retainer agreement based on the new information Damien adjusted the strategy he explained very clearly the pros cons risks and benefits and costs to us so we could assess and make informed decisions. He worked diligently constantly replied to my emails after mid nights I wrote to him at midnight as it was the only free and quiet time for me to deal with this issue after long working days but I was expecting replies in the morning and even on weekends. We rarely dealt with lawyers before let alone education laws and related legal documents we had many questions Damien was always responsive and patiently answered our questions. With the strong case Damien put together using the information he strategically gathered we settled the case with the school district got a favorable outcome beyond what we originally hoped for and more importantly got the section 504 plan for our special needs child. The Leigh Law team is also very helpful and made it effortless for us to get the reimbursement and refund unused deposit. Thank you Damien and the LLG team You are always our top choice for legal service in the Education Laws

Trying to assess Mandys ability to help our case we had two phone consultations with her. By the end of the second we had decided not to retain her services and told her so. After the phone call Mandy sent an unsolicited email message followed by a series of three more email messages. Each message felt to me as rather unwelcome and unpleasant. However these messages were revealing in that they made it clear to us that choosing not to retain Mandy was a very prudent decision.Since then my wife discovered a series of reviews online critical of Mandy. Reading them after this experience many of them seem to us as both credible and familiar.Suffice to say My opinion is that one should avoid working with Mandy.

I will forever be grateful to Mandy and the Team at Leigh Law Group.Our daughters struggle with learning issues was dismissed for nearly two years and the schools reluctance to evaluate her was frustrating and disheartening. Watching our daughter struggle and feeling powerless to provide the support she needed was heartbreaking and overwhelming. We had our daughter evaluated by an outside psychologist which revealed the presence of Dyslexia and ADHD. It was a pivotal moment that clarified our daughters challenges and opened the doors to the necessary support and accommodations she deserved.We informed the school of her diagnosis and they still refused to evaluate her and wanted to continue with SST meetings. SST meetings had not helped thus far I reached a breaking point. After speaking with an out-of-state teacher friend she suggested I get an advocate. I didnt even know they existed. After going through this experience I now understand why they exist. I got onto Google and found Leigh Law Group.I finally got the schools attention after an email to the district with Mandys help. Thanks to Mandy and her Teams tireless advocacy we finally secured a school evaluation for our daughter. Mandy got us reimbursed for the evaluation from the outside psychologist Mandys efforts were not just about obtaining an evaluation they were about restoring our familys hope and providing a pathway for our daughter to flourish.Mandy and her Team have guided us through the entire process offering invaluable advice and constant support. Mandy has attended every meeting assisted with every email reviewed all documents suggested needed outside support and even helped the school write the goals on her IEP They didnt just navigate the legal complexities they provided a lifeline that transformed our daughters educational trajectory.What makes Mandy and the Team at Leigh Law Group genuinely exceptional is their legal expertise knowledge and genuine compassion. They became more than legal advocates they were empathetic allies who understood the emotional toll of our journey. I wish I had known what I know now because my daughter wouldnt have suffered so long we are paying the consequences of that now. Although our daughter is currently on an IEP Mandy and her Team will continue to guide us. I can now sleep better at night knowing we have them on our side.

Mandy Leigh is an amazing attorney. Without her intervention and expertise my son would be a different person than he is today. Thanks to her immediate response and action when all chips were against us she came through like a knight in shining armor.I am forever grateful as our son is excelling in his environment today. I feel truly blessed that we found Mandy. She is a brilliant attorney and worked tirelessly to accomplish our goals.For the faint of heart beware....Mandy will not tell you what you want to hear but always what you need to know.I highly recommend Leigh Law Group for any special education need.
