Allison B. Vrolijk, Esq. has been admitted to the practice of law since 1995 and has previously practiced in the area of criminal prosecution. You can see her extensive legal experience in her bio, but that only tells a fraction of the story. Because in 2002, Allison became a mother, and then again in 2004, became a mother to twins.
Over the years, she has come to discover that two of her three children have special needs, including apraxia, dyspraxia, sensory processing disorder, expressive-receptive language disorder, auditory processing disorder, learning disabilities, ADHD-combined type, Tourettes with its comorbids of ADHD-hyperactive type and anxiety/OCD, and hypotonia, to name a few.
As Allison has navigated the maze of early intervention (Babies Can't Wait) and the school system (with both the IEP and 504 process), she has learned that it takes a lot of time, effort, knowledge and skill to get adequate services for children with special needs. In advocating for her own children, she has used many skills she learned and honed as a lawyer: persuasive writing, negotiating, and understanding the intricacies of the law and how to make it work for her, to name a few. And now, Allison brings that experience to you.
Whether you need a one-time consultation to help develop a plan of action, an on-going behind the scenes advisor, or a legal representative, Allison can help you get the services your child needs and is entitled to. Given her extensive criminal law experience, Allison can also represent your child in any disciplinary tribunal, manifestation hearing, or in juvenile court.
