The work I do equates to an Education Law solicitor taking on an SEN case. I am fully trained in Education Law pertaining to SEN, re-drafting statements of SEN, school Action/plus, Academies, Exclusions, parts 2, 3 and 4 appeals and the Code of Practice(whereby parents wish their child to go an independent special school,funded by the local authority), I have a very high success rate, to date, I have only lost one case. My advice is completely independent and impartial, unlike that obtained from bodies affiliated to LEAS, such as the parent partnership. I have decided to cut back on the work I do for IPSEA, and intend to go freelance. There are a large number of parents who do not qualify for legal aid or support from charitable organisations, in terms of full representation at the hearing. My rates are competitive, as my hourly rates are considerably less than a solicitor's. Unlike a solicitor, I do not just prepare the case, I also attend the hearing alongside the parents or carer, thus fully representing the case on parent's behalf, relying on case law where appropriate.
