what our clients say
Andy has been a terrific advocate for our son, and appreciated partner. He is a special-ed law expert, and any family will be lucky to have him on board. I have found him to be insightful, responsive and reasonably priced. I wholeheartedly recommend Andy.
Mother in westport
When we needed representation in our child’s educational outplacement case, we looked to the other end of the state to Andrew Feinstein because he came so highly recommended. Andy impressed us with his knowledge of the educational landscape in this state. He understood the challenges we faced as a family with a special needs child who had ceased to learn in a public school environment and helped us obtain the placement we were looking for.
Father in Norwalk
Andy is as personable as he is accomplished. He is easy-going and collaborative, very responsive to all concerns and communications. Although he is in high demand, Andy makes us feel that we are his priority and that he always has time for us. Similarly, he maintains positive professional relationships with the school district. We can’t recommend him highly enough. We couldn’t ask for a better advocate and partner than Andy Feinstein.
