SEN Legal are a national and highly successful specialist Education legal practice with a reputation for helping to obtain special educational provisions for children and young people with special educational needs.

With over 20 years’ experience in SEN Law (and a current success rate of 97%), we are able to help you achieve the best possible outcome for your son or daughter whether you are looking for support within a mainstream setting or seeking a specialist or independent school.

In addition to all types of SEND Tribunal Appeals, we also run Disability Discrimination Claims under the Equality Act 2010, including the recovery of school/tuition fees under Section 13 of the Supply of Goods and Services Act 1982. We also assist parents, grandparents, guardians and carers in cases involving Social Care, including Direct Payments, Respite or Care Proceedings.

SEN Legal can also help you to obtain Deputyships for Finance & Health and Welfare in the Court of Protection where a young person lacks capacity, or in the case of those who have lost capacity through illness.

We are experts in Judicial Review – which is a useful way of making Local Authorities, including Social Services do what they are supposed to do!

To find out more about SEN Legal and how we can achieve the best possible outcome for you and your child, please contact us or call our friendly team on 01284 723952.
