Ms. Phelan has been a wonderful support to our family from the very start of our professional relationship with her. She has been a true partner in educating us in the area of special education law and has been an invaluable resource in helping us to develop an educational plan for our child. I would never have imagined that an attorney would be so invested in my child''s success or would be so generous with her time. She goes above and beyond in every way!

I have known Attorney Phelan personally and professionally for over 15 years. Attorney Phelan goes above and beyond her duties as a lawyer in representing her clients and their respective families. Attorney Phelan is exceedingly generous with her time and talents in serving those she represents. She not only makes her clients feel seen and heard, but she is exceptionally collaborative with the agencies and institutions she works with. With Atorney Phelan, you not only get a caring support system, but positive results.
