“Dear Betsy,
I am forever indebted to you, Betsy, for your expert advice throughout a horrific ordeal. You worked tirelessly to prove my innocence in a 3020a proceeding that was instigated by a corrupt school district and fueled by lies. My proceedings ended with my complete exoneration, my record expunged and my immediate return to the classroom. We didn’t even need to file an appeal! Thank you, Betsy. I am now eligible to retire and enjoy the benefits you helped me to protect. God bless you and the work you do protecting the innocent.

After 18 years of service, the general consensus as a union member is that you cannot trust people and you have to be extremely careful who you talk to. I was brought up being told that I should be sure that the person I am speaking to is knowledgeable and to be TRUSTED, and Betsy Combier is such a person. She consistently proves that she is trustworthy, very knowledgeable and caring, time and time again.

To whom this may concern,

I want to recommend Betsy Combier as the best person you could have in your corner.  From the first day I met Betsy I felt secure.  I had the misfortune of having to go through a 3020a hearing and with help of Ms. Combier my job was secure, I don’t know where I would be without Betsy’s help and support.  She is still assisting me with my federal case.  I could not recommend Betsy any higher, she is a person of her word, and her expertise is important and necessary for everyone without any problem.

I met Betsy Combier approximately about 5 years ago, as a result of a recommendation from a colleague. Since then she has been an advocate of mine ever since, and has worked above and beyond my expectation. Betsy fights against the wrongdoing of public education officials in New York City. Throughout the extremely difficult arbitration, Betsy fought for my unalienable rights, even though my former principal did everything in her power to tarnish my name and damage my career.

Betsy is not an attorney yet she has the experience and knowledge that is above and beyond that of an attorney and follows through on all issues. She is truly an angel from heaven above, and a quality public defender.

I was charged with a 3020A in October 2016 after receiving three developing ratings in a row. I called numerous law firms as well as my union. Most people who I talked to said that I should settle because I was fighting a losing battle. A lawyer told me that anyone that says you can win a 3020A is a liar. I heard about Betsy from a teacher placed in my building who was going through the 3020A process. I hired Betsy and one of the Attorneys who works with her and her company, and won my case! Betsy saved my job and saved my life because she was emotionally supportive at a time when I needed it the most. Betsy goes above and beyond for her clients. She is readily available day and night for her clients. Betsy’s knowledge of education law is exceptional and she was a great help to my attorney. Betsy is relentless and fights hard for her clients.

Dear Betsy,

I just wanted to reach out and say thank you for CONSTANTLY being there for me throughout such a tumultuous time in my life.  I have been battling severe harassment at my place of work for months now, and you have advised me through every single second of it.  I would not have had the strength or confidence to battle such an evil administration without your help.  You have answered my phone calls from 7AM through nearly midnight with any and all of my concerns.  I have called you countless times to just vent, or even cry, and you have been there with open arms to pivot my negative anticipations into positive advocacy.  You have gone above and beyond your line of duty to help me, and for that, I can never repay you.  You have changed the outcome of my life, and led me to justice.  More importantly, you have led me to happiness again, for which I am eternally grateful.  As I am getting older, I am realizing that there are many bad people in this world, but you are TRULY one of the good ones.  When one finds a great person in life with their true best interest at heart, they should hold onto that and take their word as bond.  My last statement truly defines you, an expert in what you do, as well as a 24 hour support system.  You are amazing Betsy, and my life would truly not be the same if you had not stepped into it!!!!!

Thank you again for EVERYTHING you have done for me.  Your advisement and care will be carried in my heart for the rest of my life.
