“Before finding Berney & Sang, I was worried about my son and getting him the services he needed as a special education student.  Berney & Sang got us the help that we needed and now my son is excelling and on the right track.”


It is such an extraordinary feeling to witness our son grow in his confidence and abilities from receiving long-awaited special education services.  David Berney was incredible in identifying what our son was entitled to, and navigating and negotiating a way to achieve an agreement with our school district so that he can receive them.  As a result, our son is now learning how to work with his challenges, develop his strengths, and begin to connect his passion and purpose with his life and educational goals.  We will always be tremendously grateful to David and his team of special education attorneys for the doors that they have opened for him.

Prior to meeting with Berney & Sang, we were unsure of our rights and those of our son with regards to special education law.  After our visit, we quickly realized we were in good hands and they were passionate about protecting the rights of our son.  Through their hard work and dedication, our son is finally receiving the services he so desperately needed and deserved.  We cannot thank the Berney team enough for everything they have done for our family.  We can now see a bright future for our son whereas before we were worried and afraid.  There’s no doubt in our minds that our son will go on to becoming successful and we know the Berney team has a lot to do with that.  We thank you from the bottom of our hearts!

I am so pleased I chose Berney & Sang for my children.  For years my son did not receive the testing and special education services needed, resulting in him being over 3 years behind.  I went through all the steps with the school district but after 5 years and being told no testing was completed I turned to Berney & Sang to get justice for my son and the education he deserved.  Together we were a team for my son and his education.  Thanks to Berney & Sang my son is now receiving the special education services he needs and is making educational strides.  After handling my son’s case, I returned to Berney & Sang for my daughter’s case because I knew I found a place where people listen and care about my children and educational needs.  Again my child was the winner, receiving a settlement that provides her with the education she is entitled to.  Once again, justice was achieved for my child because we put out trust in Berney & Sang’s special education lawyers.

I’m very thankful to have met Mr. Berney and his team.  They have really helped my son find an appropriate school and get all the special education supports and services that he needs.  His self-esteem has really gone up and he’s doing much better academically because of the better educational placement.  He is actually meeting his goals now.  I didn’t believe this was possible until I met Mr. Berney and his team of special education attorneys.  My son is looking at a brighter future that we didn’t think was possible before.
