What our clients say

We’re thrilled when we get positive feedback from families who we’ve helped secure the right educational solution for their child. Here are just a few recent comments from our wonderful clients…

Rukhsana is an incredibly knowledgeable, experienced, personable, caring and determined lawyer who worked tirelessly on our case. She explained things clearly and was very reassuring at every stage of the process. 

She made us aware of other similar cases she had worked on and won, which was very helpful in guiding and encouraging us to continue when we felt like giving up.

“Expertly guided through the appeal”

“We cannot recommend Rukhsana Koser and her excellent team at Langley Wellington Education Lawyers enough for their dedication, support, and professional advice, over what has been a traumatic and difficult year for us and our son.

Having found ourselves in the unenviable situation of appealing our son’s EHCP due to events beyond our control, we were incredibly lucky to have found Rukhsana. She is clearly deeply passionate, driven and highly knowledgeable in SEND law.

Rukhsana expertly guided us through the appeal and tribunal process and brought us together with other superb professionals, who then helped develop a new plan and ETAS package for what was almost certainly a complex case. We feel we can now move forward and our son can be educated in a manner and environment that is safe, effective and that now meets his needs. We owe Rukhsana a massive debt of gratitude and strongly believe we could not have achieved this without her.”

Thank you to the Lawrence family for this lovely testimonial

“Thank you from the bottom of my heart”

“I wanted to thank you from the bottom of my heart for your support over the last year. You have no idea how very relieved we are that the battle for an appropriate and suitable education for our daughter is now finally over, following a really tough few years of constant battles with the local authority and her previous school over their failure to recognise her complex and significant special educational needs. 

“You have made such a difference to my daughter’s life, and I can now rest knowing that everything possible is being done to support her, and that she is happy and feeling safe. 

“M is currently doing really well at her residential placement. I found the first week really tough emotionally, much harder than I was expecting and prepared for, but at the same time was able to finally be able to rest and relax at home, and be able to spend quality time with my younger daughter. You have made such a difference to our whole family’s life.”

“Rukhsana was realistic and communicated clearly”

“Rukhsana helped us when our local authority refused to provide a social care and educational assessment or provision after the breakdown of our daughter’s mainstream secondary school place. She provided clear and helpful advice and put us in touch with the right professionals. 

“Rukhsana took over the communication with the LA when this became too difficult and guided us through a successful Tribunal. 

Throughout the process, Rukhsana was realistic and communicated clearly with what to expect with regards to cost, the process and potential outcomes. 

“When we started the process, it seemed all hope had gone. We feared for our daughter’s life. Our daughter now has a place at a school suitable for her SEND and we have support from the LA’s social care team. More importantly, our daughter has started to make friends and plans for the future, including where she would like to go to university.”

“You’ve made such a difference to our lives”

We cannot thank Langley Wellington enough for the support and guidance. In particular Rukhsana and her team. They have made such a difference to our family’s lives and especially our sons.
When we first approached Langley Wellington we were confused, tired and emotionally drained after years of fighting to get our son into an educational setting that would suit his social, emotional and educational needs.
We were fighting on our own and everywhere we looked there was a brick wall around us.
Rukhsana and her team immediately made us feel at ease; not just because they are professional and knowledgeable, but also because they truly did care about our son’s education, future and wellbeing.
As a result of this, our son is finally in a school which he is happy to be in. He feels secure safe and accepted allowing him to blossom and grow with confidence.
He comes home every day with a big smile on his face and goes to bed on time as he cannot wait to go back to school the next morning.
Thank you so much Rukhsana and your team for all your help.
Our son is now a confident polite young man, and most of all he is happy.
Thank you again,
Eve and Chris

“I would highly recommend Rukhsana”

“Rukhsana’s excellent understanding of SEN and passion to help children, who’ve been too often let down by the education system, has changed our lives. I will be forever grateful to her. Five years of trying to secure a diagnosis, EHCP and a school that actually wanted to help my son had all become too much for me to cope with. I needed some help. It was a last resort but looking back, I should have done it much sooner.
The feeling of handing over the reins to someone whom I trusted, and who genuinely wanted to help my son, was a huge relief for me. Once in the hands of a legal team, the LA didn’t resist too much and things started moving in the right direction.
My son now has a fantastic EHCP, he’s going to the best school (that Rukhsana recommended) and most importantly, he’s a happy boy.
This would not have been possible without Rukhsana. I would highly recommend any parent/carer going through the same situation to contact her. The best decision I could have ever made.”

“We wouldn’t look anywhere else”

We would not look anywhere else for legal support with her education needs. I met Rukhsana whilst looking at potential school placements, and was immediately struck by her warmth and understanding, as well as her incisive mind and clear experience in these matters.

I cannot recommend them highly enough

There is a saying that it takes a village to raise a child, in our case Langley Wellington’s Education Lawyers team was part of our village and we could not have come this far without them.
