Your family and child's needs at the forefront.

Victoria's dedication is to give a voice to the children and adults who do not have a voice or those that need help having their voice be heard.  She also understands that a parent's goals for their child are essential in not only understanding how to serve a family, but also what their expectations weighed against the likelihood of prevailing in today's administrative court climate.  In the end you will know and understand right away that Victoria's ego plays no part in when and how she can represent you.  She understands that picking an attorney (or advocate) is not an easy decision.  Not only must you trust that they will understand your child and their needs, but will also keep in perspective what you are going through.  So she takes no offense nor in any way places any pressure on potential clients when they are trying to make this emotion ridden and complicated choice.

Victoria's journey in Special Education was first as a stay at home mom of two children toddlers with autism.  She is first and foremost a mom and that is where her heart always lies, in the needs of her children and children like them.  She has experienced first hand having to file due process for her children before she ever trained to become an advocate and then later, out of the shock of her son losing all skills in his public school placement, she decided to empower herself to become an attorney with the sole focus of helping her children.  

Her most passionate mission is in the education of parents, in whatever manner, be it: training, consult, or representation.  Although she must provide financially for the needs of her children, she tries to make education advocacy support and/or litigation accessible to her clients.  She has walked in their shoes, either fighting for her own children, while fighting for a child of a friend, or fighting for that of a client.  She understands that a parent's time and energy is valuable when seeing/not seeing their child progress and in exchange asks that parent clients understand the same.

Victoria is also always open and willing to speak and train groups as well.  In her pervious employment before re-opening her practice, she has gained insight on the "other side" when she worked for the State of California ensuring Disability Compliance, and then later (at Learning Rights Law Center) as Director of community groups and advocacy for parents of special education students and Director of parent training of parents of all knowledge levels and disabilities (in both English and Spanish) on their legal disability rights.  If she could, some day she hopes to dedicate her life to empowering moms and dads on how to help their own children while being change agents in their communities on a local, state, federal, and global level.
