“Michelle used to be a special education teacher and as a result she understands the child and parents side. She’s got great relationships and comes highly recommended from many others in similar situations. She goes above and beyond to understand and work to help get children what they need.”

“The world is a better place for children like my special needs son because Karen Edler is in it. Our family endured an emotionally draining and difficult process of getting our son into the appropriate education placement. Throughout the entire time we worked with Karen, she was professional, kind and concerned with the well-being of our son and our entire family. Karen always explained whatever process we were in thoroughly and answered our questions with great detail. Even after my son began his new school (and he is thriving), Karen always follows up every few months to see how we all are doing and asking for updates on his progress. She celebrates our sons successes as much as we do and know he (and we) forever have Karen in our corner! There is no one like her.”

“Karen is the best family and childhood educational services attorney in New Jersey. She took on our school district, got two of our children into out of district specialized schools, got my an additional child excellent in district services. As a result my children have excelled. Karen’s efforts led to the district to change their entire student leveling system realizing that what they were doing was unlawful and discriminatory. Karen’s efforts helped my family, but will also help the thousands of children to come through our district in the future. Karen is a tiger and will get it done. She is smart, clever and get’s results.”
