From the Parent of an Ivy League Student With Discrimination Claims

I recommend Mr. Boyd without reservation and with great appreciation and respect. This is not something I say lightly. Mr. Boyd provided superb legal advice and intervention.

Without Mr. Boyd's help, guidance, and most of all action we would never have be able to resolve our problem; with his help we did and were reimbursed for what we had paid the institution as well as Mr. Boyd's fees.

Mr. Boyd very quickly understood our predicament and more importantly understood how to resolve it. He did so with great finesse and a well worked out strategy, both indispensable when challenging an institution of almost unlimited resources.

I think that the clearest recommendation I could give him is that when a close friend found himself in serious trouble with his educational institution, I recommended Mr. Boyd to him. With precisely the same combination of finesse, strategy and empathy he resolved my friend's extremely perilous situation.
