Tianna Vanderwey is currently a student at Pacific University studying psychology, philosophy, and French, with an intent to study law in the future. Growing up with a brother who has autism, Tianna has learned how to have a voice for those who sometimes do not. In her spare time, Tianna plays the clarinet, works with adults with disabilities, and travels.
Linda Sinclair has served as a special educator in various capacities across multiple districts and regional education service districts in Oregon. Her experience with educational teams and parents focused on individualized supports and advocacy for students with a wide range of needs to enable their success in the school setting.   She also follows her passion to provide parents with information about parenting skills through teaching parent classes in the community and conducting workshops. Her hobbies include organic gardening, ballroom dancing, hiking, camping, traveling and creative projects.
Deanne has worked with Diane in one capacity or another since before Diane graduated from law school. While Deanne did take time off to have a baby, she has been office manager at Wiscarson Law for as long as anyone can remember. Although you can ask her any questions you may have regarding your statements, records, or appointments, please don’t ask her for directions, as this native Portlander has never gotten around to getting a driver’s license.

Living in a historic Portland neighborhood, Deanne is an active board member of her neighborhood association and a founding member of three active book groups – two for herself and one for her daughter. Her daughter attends a Spanish immersion program within Portland Public Schools and her husband, while a Market Transport Planner during the day, is a stand up bass player for many local Latin and old-time jazz bands. You may see the whole family, including their dog King, driving around town in their 2005 Stella Scooter with sidecar.

Christine Moore has worn many different hats during her career. She began as a Speech Language Pathologist and was the Special Education Director for one of the largest school districts in Oregon. She has also taught at both Western Oregon Uuniversity and Lewis & Clark College. She recently retired as the Director of the Special Education Programs for the Graduate School of Education and Counseling at Lewis & Clark College. Needless to say, she brings a wealth of information to her position as an educational advocate at Wiscarson Law. We are lucky to have her. When she is not with us she enjoys antiquing, fine wine, art, and most of all, her family.
As the youngest of 12 children, Lidia grew up negotiating and advocating for herself within her very large family. As an adult, she is the mother of two boys with autism. Since the initial diagnoses of her children, Lidia has advocated for them in every possible venue. As a result, her sons are both completely integrated into their community, participating in all types of educational, social, and vocational activities and opportunities.

As her boys have grown older and are becoming young men, Lidia’s advocacy has expanded to include other students and young adults. In addition to providing some education advocacy, her true talent lies in navigating public agencies to find and negotiate services outside the public education system. She focuses on attaining maximum success and community integration for each individual, regardless of the impact of their disability.

In her spare time, Lidia designs and develops educational materials for her sons, bakes, remodels her turn-of-the century home, and spends time with her vast network of family and friends.
