Education Legal services for Families, in particular, Special Educational Needs & Disability

Education Lawyers

No one expects to enter the complex and often confusing world of education law when they have children. Our small, friendly specialist team at Education Lawyers, is here to help you secure the right solution for your child.

We only deal with education law, and in particular, special educational needs and disability law. We work together with you to get the best results for your child or young person and cover both England and Wales.

Education Lawyers has a very high success rate and we pride ourselves in working to resolve your issue before it reaches the SEND Tribunal. This saves you money and precious time for your child’s education. The current wait for Tribunal hearings is around a year, so we do everything we can to reach a favourable resolution as quickly as possible.

We offer staged payments to help you with affordability. If your budget won’t stretch to full representation, we can still help if you succeed in obtaining a statutory plan, with our popular, fast, and great value service to M.O.T your child’s draft EHCP. This is also available following an annual review. We can ensure the document is legally compliant and meets your child’s needs.

Education Lawyers can help you at any stage of the special educational needs assessment process with Education, Health and Care Plans (or IDPs in Wales), Annual Reviews, Disability Discrimination claims, Judicial Review, Exclusions, school placement search and more.

We can also help you create a Deputyship or Lasting Power of Attorney as your disabled young person approaches adulthood, to ensure you can continue to advocate for them.

Take a look through our site at our free information about SEND and you can also find answers to frequently asked questions you may have.

If you need expert, personalised legal advice or representation, don’t hesitate to get in touch via the contact form, or call us on 01452 555 166 or you can ask for a call back.

Our experienced team also speaks fluent Urdu and Polish.
