Denver Leigh Watson, MAT, M.Ed., LDTC

Special Education Consultant, Paralegal
A native of Pennsylvania, Jess’ family was thrilled to recently relocate to New Jersey after living away for more than seven years. When not supporting clients, Jess loves spending time with her family, exercising, reading and cooking.
Diana Sever, Esq.
It is Diana’s unique perspective, her combination of litigation background and Special Education experience, which causes her to pursue a cooperative solution between the families she represents and their child’s school whenever possible. Diana is a skilled litigator, and prepared to go to court when necessary. But she knows from experience that litigation is often expensive, unpredictable, and stressful – it is with this in mind that she helps families achieve their education goals for their children by bridging the gap between families and schools.
Diana received her Juris Doctorate from Villanova University School of Law in 1994, and graduated Phi Beta Kappa and magna cum laude from the University of Delaware. She is licensed to practice law in the state and federal courts of New Jersey, and the 3rd Circuit United States Court of Appeals.
Dan Posternock, Esq.
Dan is a member of the New Jersey Association of Professional Mediators, Burlington County Bar Association’s Alternative Dispute Resolution Committee, National Arbitration and Mediation (NAM), and has served on the Supreme Court of New Jersey’s District Ethics Committee.
Dan received his Juris Doctorate from Widener Law School (formerly named Delaware Law School) in 1985, and his Bachelor of Arts from Monmouth University in 1982. He is licensed to practice law in the state and federal courts of New Jersey.
