Specialist School Appeals & Education Law Solicitor

Every parent wants their child to enjoy and do well at school. Getting the right education matters to every child. Consulting a solicitor is the last thing any parent or carer wants to do, but sometimes it is the only option left.

Getting the right school or placement can have a huge impact on a child's future. Admissions for standard mainstream education or where there is an element of disability or special needs can be a fraught, bewildering experience where the stakes are very high.

Making sure the provision is right, that needs are assessed and if necessary strategies are in place can also be a frustrating battle. Special Needs, physical disabilities and medical conditions can all give rise to obstacles that need to be addressed. The Equality Act and other law and guidance provide protection for children, but can be very complex.

My practice deals with issues across the whole education spectrum, and I have dealt with children and the law for the last 20 years. Click the links for more details. The blog pages contain tips, factsheets, advice and practical advice to download and print off. I offer everyone the opportunity to have a free initial call of about 20 minutes to see what I can offer to help. I keep fees low by working on fixed fees as far as possible and charge an hourly rate that is less than some firms charge out a trainee solicitor!

I provide advice, support and representation about education and school settings.

Every case is unique, and every case matters. There is a lot of information on the site, on the blog and on my Factsheets. Please do see if there is anything that can help you and your case.

Every new client has the opportunity to explain to me what the issues for them and their family are. A free, no obligation, phone call helps me to understand what is going wrong, and if I can help to put it right. It helps if you fill out the ‘Contact Us’ page enquiry form so that I can get a sense of what the issues are and make sure you get the most from that initial call.
