In regards to protecting our special needs children, we should always have a solution to resolve any issues and Shields's Law Firm provided that for my grandson. Andrea (Attorney) was spectacular and so was her assistant Nicee. Don't be discouraged by all paperwork that is needed to proceed.

Would definitely use them again if I needed to.

We retained Kevin to help with a case with my son's school district. He was clear, logical, and easy to work with. His experience showed as we would not have had the favorable resolution had we not had Kevin on our team. We are very satisfied with his performance and the eventual outcome.
Kevin an Jennifer were great to work with they are very honest an caring. It was a pleasure to get to know them. They worked hard for what was best for my family. They also explain in details everything an answer all your questions.
The assistance we received was not only superb and highly professional, but it was also done with great empathy and a firm understanding of our situation. Attorneys took great care to review our case carefully, to answer all of our questions, and offer alternatives based on that research. We highly recommend Shields Law Firm and their attorneys.
I would like to enthusiastically recommend Jennifer Swanson and the Shields Law Firm. After a year and a half of serious medical issues, our daughter had missed a lot of school and was unable to return without assistance. We did not know she needed access to special education services. We needed help, and contacted Shields Law Firm. Ms. Swanson explained all the options our daughter was entitled to and helped us navigate due process successfully. She also helped us prep for our ARD meeting and attended with us. Ms. Swanson made sure we completely understood every step of the process. She was available to answer any question we might have, no matter how small. During the ARD, Ms. Swanson made sure everything was clear and helped us reach the best possible solution for our daughter. Her knowledge and expertise made the ARD process much less stressful. I am very happy to say that our daughter now has all the help she needs to be successful. This would not have been possible without Jennifer Swanson.
This Law Firm was easy to communicate with. Their response to my emails and phone calls was within the same day. They were friendly and wanted to make sure I had all my questions answered. I've had difficulty navigating the Special Education journey as a parent, but their guidance made things less complicated. I would definitely recommend them to other parents struggling.
Jennifer and Kevin and the team at Shields Law Firm are wonderful people and effective advocates for children. They did a great job and delivered positive results. Thank you!!
We had an incident with our daughter’s school, regarding her IEP implementation and I found this firm through google search.
The first and most coolest attribute that popped out at me was that the attorneys, Kevin and Jennifer were former educators, with Law degrees!😱 WE WERE SOLD!!!
Our Consultation with Jennifer just sealed the deal. She was NATURALLY empathetic, she had a silent but tenacious spirit, she took thorough and precise notes 📝 and we were comfortable enough to put our daughter’s situation in her hands. To simply put it, if you’re needing a firm that will fight for what is right in your child’s school and FOR your child, look no further. Your search stops here.
This Lawfirm went over and beyond for our family. My son had been neglected by the school district for several years and I didn’t know what to do anymore. I called Shield’s Law firm and told them my story and they were so eager to help. I’m so glad I had them on our side. My son went from never passing any of his classes to now making A’s and B’s. His confidence level has jumped up so much in the last couple of months. Thank y’all so much for everything y’all did for us. We greatly, greatly appreciate it!!!! ❤️
I will forever be grateful for Jennifer and Kevin. Because of them my son is getting the help he needs. Jennifer was always right there anytime we had a question. We've been in touch a few times after everything was settled, just to make sure everything is still going good.
I was very pleased with Mr. Shields, Mrs. Swanson they were very professional, transparent. I really appreciated their honesty! Always maintained a communication to allow me to have a peace of mind of what was to be expected and status update with my child's case. Mrs. Swanson made me feel comfortable I didn't feel judged as a parent. If you have a special needs child I recommend there services to the fullest 🙂
Jennifer was fantastic! She was very professional and knowledgeable. Our 504 meeting with the ISD’s General Counsel was difficult but she kept her wise kind tone but inserted excellent questions, which left the other side scratching their heads! Her presence helped us tremendously! Don’t hesitate to ask Kevin and Jennifer to help you!
Kevin and Jennifer are very responsive and truly professional.
The Shields firm has developed a trusting relationship with our family. I feel like their goal is not only outcomes but they care about your family as a whole. Jennifer and Kevin helped us during a critical time, but we now have gained long term partners and advocates. We would not hesitate to recommend the Shields firm.
Working with Shields Law Firm completely turned our experience with public school around. They gave us the tools we needed to advocate for our son, and helped us navigate the sometimes treacherous school system. We needed someone who would listen and know appropriate and ethical ways to respond to finally get the help we needed. We'll forever be grateful for this firm.
Kevin and Jennifer are the saviors you need when protecting the rights of your child are in order. Their professionalism, pricing and commitment to excellence in legal matters sets them apart from other firms. I specifically worked with Jennifer and her precise attention to detail kept everyone in accordance with the law. She's sharp in the best way possible. Rest assured that they will protect your family. I appreciate them.
My experience with Shields Law firm has been amazing. Our attorney assigned, Mrs. Swanson provided my family with the tools we needed to advocate for our son, and helped us navigate the sometimes-treacherous school system that at times has been so confusing, unfair and frustrating. When I first needed someone who would listen and provide me with the appropriate and ethical ways to respond to finally get the help we needed, Mrs. Swanson went above and beyond! We will forever be grateful for all the help received from your law firm and most of all Mrs. Swanson. Thank you will always be an understatement for how grateful we will always be.
I highly recommend Shields Law Firm. Kevin, Jennifer and Andrea took excellent care of me and my family. From consultation to resolution, Shields Law provided exceptional support for every step of the process. Great communication, professionalism, and empathy are just a few of the reasons why I would absolutely trust Shields Law to represent us again if needed.
From day one Jennifer and Kevin were honest and compassionate and that continued throughout the entire process. It was comforting knowing we had them in our corner with our child’s best interest in mind and personally felt we had the best of the best when it came to representation. I have no doubt we we made the right decision in choosing Shields Law Firm!
Highly recommended to us and they did not disappoint. Jennifer is incredibly professional while simultaneously compassionate. Her passion for her craft and for the rights of special needs students is unmatched. We will not hesitate to utilize this firm if the need transpires again as we are extremely grateful!
My experience with the firm is nothing short of stellar. They are all so impressive and diligent in their work. They are super responsive and an amazing resource for a special education parent. I have complete trust in their guidance as they are a wealth of knowledge. I recommend Kevin, Jennifer and Devin to any special education parent who needs support or help navigating through the special education process.
My overall experience working with my Attorney, Ms. Andrea Koch was a very positive one. She encompasses all those positive traits you want in a lawyer; knowledgeable, efficient, professional, responsive and most of all very empathetic.
I highly recommend Shields Law Firm to any parent who is looking for a reputable, effective and results driven firm.
We highly recommend Shields Law firm. They are an extremely knowledgeable and experienced law firm. My wife and I reached out to Shields Law firm when we were having issues with our child’s school. We felt our child was being discriminated against because of a possible disability. Although we did not have a diagnosis of something that was wrong. My wife and I knew our child wasn’t getting the proper help from the school. Our child was many levels behind in reading and struggling with his behavior, yet the school was unable to find anything wrong or provide us with answers that were satisfactory as to why our child was performing so poorly. Not only was our child struggling in school, the administration was treating us and speaking to us very badly. Feeling hopeless and discouraged we decided to hire Ms. Jennifer Swanson. We met with Jennifer at her office and shared with her what we were going through with our child’s school administration. She was very understanding and compassionate towards our needs. Jennifer is a former special education teacher and very knowledgeable of Texas Education Laws as well as with the inner workings of education system and how to deal with school administration as well as school districts. After hiring Jennifer it completely leveled the playing field for us, we were no long being mistreat by the school administration. Jennifer help us understand our rights and informed us of our options. Jennifer always gave us multiple options in regards to how we wanted to handle the situation. She is extremely experienced with the processes in dealing with the school, Jennifer was always three steps ahead of whatever the district was throwing our way and had options ready for each scenario. After Jennifer stepping in to help us deal with the school, we were able to find a diagnosis for our child and have accommodations put in place. After Jennifer attending two meetings and coaching us on how to handle the school there has been a 180 degree turn around in the help that our child is receiving and also how the school speaks and treats my wife and I. We are so glad we decided to hired Shields Law Firm, we don’t know where our child would be if not for Jennifer’s knowledge, help and understanding. Jennifer Swanson genuinely cares for children and their wellbeing.
I can't say enough about Jennifer and everything that she did to help my son get the services and support he needed. Her guidance and support gave me the confidence I needed to stand up to district and fight even harder for my son. Her help and support enabled my son to get the support and services that he needed plus more. I'm so thankful for Jennifer and recommend her services to anyone looking for an attorney.
I highly recommend Shield’s Law Firm. Andrea was a godsend to my family! Her knowledge and guidance gave us the confidence to continue pushing our school district to provide our son the accommodations he needed. She explained the process thoroughly, prepped us for all meetings and provided all of our options. We learned so much and are grateful for Andrea’s help.
I couldn't be happier with the legal team or the outcome they produced with our student. I was hesitant to hire a professional, because I make it a point to be well versed in district policy and procedure. After hitting a "good old boy" wall, I was fortunate to find Shield's Law Firm. Jennifer and Andrea were amazing to work with! We have struggled with districts for years....and now the struggle is over! If you "think" you may need legal assistance...you do. This is an excellent firm that is straight forward with their approach and keeps you appraised of all possible outcomes and remedies. We couldn't be happier (neither can our student)!
They could not help me with my law needs but they agreed to email me a list that could possibly appeal the way that the state of Texas is treating my disabled daughter. She has autism and ADHD, opposition defiant disorder, irritable bowel syndrome constipation and diarrhea, renal problems, hypercalcemia, and other issues...
I am so grateful for Jennifer and Kevin. What a phenomenal law firm! They are compassionate, professional and attentive, to say the least. I was so relieved to find someone that I know is there and knowledgeable in the area of special education. They made me feel validated and gave me a sense of peace that I really needed. It’s so good to know that as parents, we aren’t alone and that there are people who care about our kids and their best interest when we are faced with school personnel that don’t. I wouldn’t think twice about seeking out Kevin and Jennifer for their legal counsel. Thank you for what you do and for being a light at the end of the tunnel for parents who have children with special needs!
There are not enough superlatives to adequately express how incredible our experience has been with Shields Law Firm. We came to them in desperation, knowing only that we needed specialized legal help. Jennifer guided us from the very beginning and was completely candid about what we should expect throughout the process from getting to know each other, right up through mediation and beyond. Her knowledge and expertise gave us so much confidence and made what could be an extremely stressful situation into one where we felt comfortable and secure. Jennifer is a tenacious fighter while exuding integrity and professionalism. Not once did we feel worried that we would not get what was best. We are forever grateful. Do not hesitate to entrust Shields Law with your child's future.
Kevin was very understanding of our frustrations with being denied learning disability accommodations and support for our child who had been diagnosed with a specific learning disability. He was very knowledgeable of many disabilities and impairments. Kevin’s help was monumental in acquiring the attention, services, and justice needed for our child to be successful academically and emotionally. In addition he gave assistance on how to receive testing for an additional learning disability that the school repeatedly dismissed and denied us as parents when we asked for help and testing. We highly recommend Shields Law services.
I was stressed, frustrated and felt hopeless trying to get the school administration to understand my daughters 504 accommodations. The Shield Law Firm, Andrea Koch and support staff delivered exactly the right pressure on the school administration in a calm and productive manner.
The firm acknowledges the whole child and as result of dedicated and skilled knowledge on educational law ,Andrea Koch, at the Shield Law Firm changed my daughters education life for the better . They truly treated my child as if it was the firms child and the words grateful and thankful do not suffice . I cant wait to send them my daughters High School graduation picture and college admissions status. Thank God for this firm.
Blown away by the care and detail that went into this process. Andrea went above and beyond in representing us and despite how difficult it is to go this route as parents, it was necessary and we couldn’t have picked a better firm to advocate for us, fight for us, and represent us. Our kiddo is safe, in better hands, and that was all thanks to passionate and kind people working at this firm. With a sincere and grateful heart, we give 10/10.
Very much Appreciate the service I received from Shields Law…Definitely recommended to all concerned parents regarding your child(ren) educational services and needs.
Kevin and Andrea helped me out tremendously! Both were extremely amazing on handling my case and went above and beyond for us. They were so helpful and understanding of the situation I presented them with. Andrea was absolutely incredible in explaining everything to me and helping me out in my resolution hearing. I highly recommend Shields law!!!
We can’t begin to say how appreciative we are to Andrea and Shields law firm for helping us though an incredibly difficult time. Andrea was the perfect balance for our family and we truly can’t express how grateful we are. Recommend 1000 times over!!
Attorney Shields was very intuitive and helpful at giving me clarity of what to do in my situation with my son, which is a SP-ED student. Even if he is unable to represent you he will reference you to help and resources that can. Even his team members are very polite and gave me a sense of surerity in coming to a resolution in my case. My child , of course, is a very sensitive part of my life and he assured me that what I was doing and have done to protect and advocate for my child was awesome and that I was doing a great job at it!!
That made me feel very proud to hear that coming from Atty Shields!
My experience with Shields was beyond what I could have expected. Andrea and Jennifer were very responsive to messages and extremely supportive through the entire process. They told me exactly what to expect and walked me through every aspect. I will forever be grateful to them for getting my child the tools she needs to succeed. Because of them we began this school year already set up for success! I HIGHLY recommend their services. If you are on the fence about seeking legal advice just please at least message them, they are truly all about helping the client in whatever way possible. Thanks guys!
We highly recommend Andrea with Shields Law Firm. We have been using Shields Law Firm for over 3 years. She did an amazing job helping us with our last 504 meeting. She was very knowledgeable and aggressively advocated for our sons rights. It is amazing what Cy Fair ISD tries to get away with. Andrea will fight for your children’s rights. She was able to get us accommodations that the school was not offering because we were not aware of them. As a parent you must fight for your children and Andrea will stand behind you. Her service is invaluable
My family was extremely pleased with the services provided by Shields Law Firm and highly recommend them for anyone looking to resolve their concerns in a quick and effective manner. The firm is extremely knowledgeable and friendly. We had the pleasure of working with Andrea and Jennifer. Both made us feel our concerns were heard and they helped us meet our goal. Thanks Shields Law Firm.
It is never easy to have to navigate the trenches of special education for your children but Shields Law Firm makes the journey so much easier. They are kind, understanding, extremely knowledgable and very available with any and all questions. Andrea is TOP Notch and one of the most empathetic individuals you would meet. She spends quality time with you to ensure that you are aware of your rights and have all the information needed to make an informed decision. Kevin is extremely knowledgable of the law and the BEST path to move forward in a situation. I would highly recommend this law firm if you are in need of help navigating the channels of special education for your child.
We recently needed to use the Shields Law firm. Wow, we completely didn’t understand how uneducated we were as parents about the rights for our son until hiring them. They careful walked us through the processes, help us understand every step, and help us become ‘empowered advocates’ for our son! Our only regret is that we didn’t hire them much sooner! They always put our child’s needs first. Our child’s education is now on the right path due to all their help. They are amazing and we highly, highly recommend them, especially Andrea Koch!
Sincerely Bill and Dawn Needels
Words cannot express how grateful we are for finding Shields Law. Andrea did such an amazing job at addressing all of our needs and concerns to the school. She was so detailed every step of the way not only with us but with the school so there was no gray areas. No matter what time a day, she was there to answer all of our concerns and she was extremely patient and understanding. Not only did she help us tremendously but she also taught us a lot so we are more knowledgeable in the future. Thank you so much again and highly recommend!
Best choice I could have made to help myself and my daughter. Extremely caring and compassionate! I couldn’t have done this alone, with the help of Andrea my daughter received everything she needed for me to feel safe with her returning to school! You can’t go wrong trusting everyone in staff, they are here for you and your child #1!!
