The education sector is complex, involving many different people and authorities. Teachers, students and parents will be affected by different issues in various ways and sometimes need specialised legal support.

Richard Nelson LLP’s education solicitors comprise a team of lawyers that specialise in working alongside parents of children with special educational needs and lawyers that specialise in working with teachers involved in TRA cases.

What made the difference – as opposed to other legal firms I had contacted, is she actually believed in me. Suffice it to say, we won the case and a successful result was obtained – in a very short time scale.TRA client

If you’re a teacher who needs advice or representation in a disciplinary case involving the TRA, Richard Nelson LLP’s teacher lawyers will be able to advise you, helping you to arrive at the best possible outcome.

Likewise, our specialist SEN solicitors work with parents of children with special educational needs to ensure that their child has the best education, health and care plan (EHCP) in place. Getting the right EHCP is crucial for a child’s development in the education system and our solicitors can help throughout the application, appeals and assessment processes.

Whether you’re a professional within the education sector or you’re the parent or carer of a child who wants to get the most from it, it’s essential that you receive specialist help in legal cases. It is important that you work with someone who understands how the relevant authorities work and how to succeed in cases that involve them.
