My experience with Michelle Powers and Punam Grewal have been excellent. They are always available to answer any questions I have or to address any of my concerns. Through my case they have been able to go above and beyond to fight hard and achieve excellent results in court.
Ms. Grewal is an excellent special education attorney whom I’ve had the pleasure of working with on several different cases. She is very knowledgeable about special needs children and the services available to them through the school districts. I have personally observed her ability to fight for necessary services, including those that are often difficult to obtain such as non-public school placement. Furthermore, Ms. Grewal has a very unique and valuable specialization in working with special needs children who have also been accused of violent and/or otherwise serious crimes. This is a rare specialization making Ms. Grewal an invaluable resource for families of such children. I would recommend her for anyone looking for a qualified lawyer to assist with their minor child’s needs.

1-11-2016 Dear Ms. Punam Patel Grewal On behalf of my daughter, husband and myself, I would like to thank you for everything you have done and continue to do for the rights of my daughter Alexandra. You and Michelle have helped us in the case of abuse my daughter received from her teacher and you continue to help us. We hope to not have to call on you in the future for any other case. But if we needed your service, you would be the first we would call. We are so very grateful for everything you have done. Thank you again.

We had the unfortunate situation that our son with special needs was arrested and was being tried in a criminal case. We hired a criminal Attorney and soon learned that we needed someone that specialized in special needs. Fortunately we were connected with Punam Grewal who opened our eyes to many injustices that had occurred to our son prior to his arrest which inevitably lead to his arrest. She helped us thru his criminal case and more importantly was able to get him the educational support that he had so desperately been deprived of. We are so very thankful that she was able to help us through such an emotional and traumatic situation. Our son has grown leaps and bounds due to the education services she was able to help us obtain for him.
-Sincerely, David and Tina Powers
Powers Grewal is one of the BEST law firms in California. Our Special Education Agency has worked with Attorney Punam Grewal on several matters relating to the laws as it relates to our special education student population. We have been impressed with the outcome of each and every one of our cases that she has dealt with. Her work ethic, attention to detail, and overall legal abilities are outstanding! She understands the IEP process very well, and that especially gave us relief. If you are looking to retain one of the best attorneys in California, I highly recommend and endorse Powers Grewal.

Michelle Powers has helped me through several complex legal crises. She came to my rescue with thoroughly researched solutions and great advice. She is professional, caring, and an excellent lawyer. She has helped me through some of the most stressful times of being a small business owner. When a legal situation came up, I felt powerless. But having Michelle on my side put my mind at ease. No matter what your legal issue, Michelle can help you prevail.
I can’t thank Punam enough for everything she has done for me. She has made a very stressful situation so much easier. She is very personable and makes you feel comfortable and at ease,during tough times.If I ever had any questions or concerns I knew I could contact her and she would be more then helpful.She even allowed my family to speak to her and rest assured that everything would be okay. Punam is professional, caring and a straight shooter what more can you ask for? I can honestly say I trust her with my life.I highly recommend her to anyone looking for a trustworthy attorney to fight for them.If I ever need any legal assistance she will be the first person that I call. Punam is excellent!
I feel so fortunate that my advocate put me in touch with the law firm of PowersGrewal. I had been trying to work with my school district for two years to get individual speech and occupational services for my autistic 5 year old son. Every stage seemed to be a battle, and I only seemed to find resistance and obstacles. Once I talked with Ms. Powers and Ms. Grewal, I felt that I had such strong allies on my side. The only regret that I have is that I did not seek their services earlier.
They were always available by phone, text, or email and so supportive explaining the legal aspects and policies involved. I have never had to seek legal services before, so was a bit unfamiliar with the process and a bit hesitant about venturing into the legal environment. They were firm with the district fighting on my behalf but were kind and supportive to me, which is just what I needed through this process. During the settlement agreement process, Ms. Powers was very persistent and thorough working with the school district’s attorney to make sure the language in the agreement was clear and specific regarding my son’s rights.
With their help, I was able to get speech, occupational, a 1-1 aide, and mainstreaming opportunities for my son. I know these services will make a huge difference in his academic and social goals. I felt so empowered with them on my side. I highly recommend the law firm of PowersGrewal. Please feel free to ask the firm for my contact number if you should like to talk in person.

Some school districts have no regard for what is in the best interest of your child. We would believe that school districts do whats right for children. This was not always the case for my child. This is difficult to say since I am a teacher. Even with the knowledge of laws as a teacher, I still needed the expertise of the Powers Grewel team. Since day one, they have had the best interest of my child. My child was going to be expelled from a school district that wanted to assure it would happen. I needed to make sure that didn’t happen to protect my child’s welfare. I went with the most experienced attorney’s knowing their would be a positive outcome. As the school district pressed forward so did my attorneys. These attorney’s fought for 4 1/2 straight against the school district. After one meeting, the school district decided to withdraw the expulsion. This was due to the knowledge that they have in special education law. I could never thank them enough for all the help they have done for my child. They saved my child’s life from going in the wrong direction by being expelled which would have affected my child negatively. I would greatly recommend them to assist any child due to their love of helping children and assuring school districts follow the law. Thank you both for your professionalism, kindness, and expertise.
