Discourage litigation. Persuade your neighbors to compromise whenever you can.
Point out to them how the nominal winner is often a real loser -- in fees,
expenses, and waste of time. As a peacemaker the lawyer has a superior
opportunity of being a good man. There will still be business enough.
The Child Comes First
At the heart of all of what Allison does is the knowledge that she is working for a child, a child who has hopes and dreams for the future. But also a child who has disabilities whose needs are not being appropriately met by their public school. Allison's focus and efforts are always on that child's best interest, as she strives to help secure a brighter future for that child.
Getting quick results at the lowest level possible, at the least cost to you, is our goal. The unfortunate reality is that very few parents win at due process hearings, so often a very expensive losing proposition. Because of this fact, the Law Office of Allison B. Vrolijk, LLC, strives to resolve disagreements with school districts without ever having to file for due process. Allison has developed relationships with school district attorneys and staff that enables her to achieve results for her clients not available to other attorneys. As a result, Allison has earned a reputation of being a problem solver, a bridge builder and a savvy negotiator with school districts. Top-Rate, Ethical Representation
When conflicts cannot be resolved at a lower level, the Law Office of Allison B. Vrolijk, LLC, provides exceptional representation, always with a mind to settling the disputes as early as possible. Decisions regarding settlement are always left in the hands of the client, with guidance and advice from Allison. From filing complaints with the appropriate agency to representing clients in mediation, Due Process hearings or Juvenile Court proceedings, we utilize our extensive litigation experience to bring about the best result possible. What you won't get with the Law Office of Allison B. Vrolijk, LLC, is an offer to take your case to due process when you don't have any real chance of winning; an attorney who will agree to fight for things that she does not believe is in your child's best interest; and unrealistic assessments of what you might be able to get from the school system for your child. You will get an attorney who puts her client's interests ahead of her own business interests, so you can be rest assured that you are getting an honest assessment of your child's case. Client-Centered Service
Allison's reputation is also one of giving unprecedented attention to her clients and their needs. She makes herself readily available and accessible, and takes immediate action when warranted. That she personally cares about each and every client is readily apparent, as she does all within her power to ensure that they are given the education that they need, deserve, and are entitled to.
