As a single mom who was lost with what to do for my son and his educational needs, David made everything very clear.
I had been battling with the school district for years as things progressively got worse over time. I started the journey with a special ed advocate but soon realized I needed to have someone who knew more about the legal aspects of special ed as well as my child’s rights. I was recommended to Tollner by a friend and decided to meet with Amanda O’Neal to discuss our situation. After meeting with her I knew I had to take the next step and work with them. Amanda was the best, she listened with empathy to years of pent up frustration and supplemented them with her knowledge, soon enough we got the outcome we wanted that best served my child’s needs. My child is in the best placement possible and is in the best environment. I would recommend Tollner Law Offices and Amanda to any parent who is needing to navigate the difficult world of special ed.
Sarah, Nida and her team ” brought the sledge.” They were not only efficient and economical in their use of our time , but they brought results much sooner and more positively than expected. We were guided every step of the way and Nida & Sarah especially have very warm demeanor, who I mostly would speak with on the phone or zoom. I felt very supported and informed.
Amanda was an excellent guide down an intimidating path to secure an appropriate level of educational support for our child.
We could not have navigated this process without her.
Amanda was patient, thorough, and we always knew that she had our best interest as her top priority.
We are so grateful.
I’ve worked with two lawyers from Tollner Law Offices over the past six years, David Tollner and Bonnie Yates. Both attorneys are top-notch. I have two children who required their services. Both attorneys worked wonderfully with the school districts. They’re both very knowledgable about special education laws and guided my husband and me to get the appropriate accommodations and tuition reimbursement for our children. I feel very lucky to have had the opportunity to work with Tollner Law Offices.
Tollner Law firm exceeded my expectations. I was referred to them from a reputable child advocate and I am so glad I chose them to represent my child’s case against our school district. I was very impressed by both Bonnie Yates and Devan Brothers. I appreciate their dedication and team work. Devan stayed on my case as we took it to the next level. They always seem to put the “client” first by making sure I had a clear understanding of the litigation process. Also both were very experienced, sympathetic, compassionate, and understanding of my son’s needs. Devan always impressed me with her thoroughness, sharpness, and attention to detail. She advocated so well that we were able to achieve our highest goal with getting my son into a very reputable and prestigious private school placement. Something most people did not think we would be able to achieve but we did with our drive and persistence. A BIG thank you to Devan, Bonnie and the team at Tollner Law Firm! I could have not done it without this well experienced and reputable team of attorneys. It was all worth the fight! Truly the BEST law firm in Education Law!
Bonnie Yates investigated mistreatment, discrimination, child abuse, and illegal actions against my kid’s right of receiving Free Appropriate Public Education. We settled with the district.
The knowledge & experience of our attorneys were invaluable. We felt supported & confident as Bonnie walked us through this difficult process. A fair settlement was reached reasonably quickly during mediation. We were very grateful not to have to go to hearing.
David Tollner has helped us tremendously in the past couple of years to get services from school district for our Autistic daughter!!! He is very knowledgeable, professional and efficient. He is very compassionate in defending families Rights.
I highly recommend him to anyone who has a hard time dealing with school district to get services for their child.
If you are tired of being pushed around by a district and your kid is suffering, David’s your guy. I could have said this in a more eloquent and less abrupt fashion, we have been through so much with SJUSD and were relieved that we were able to come to a satisfactory ending. Thanks again David!
