SEN Legal

SEN Legal are a national and highly specialist legal practice with an excellent reputation. We have over 20 years’ experience in SEN and disability work, acting on behalf of parents/young people to solve complex problems and to secure special educational provision for children and young persons aged 0-25. Many members of our team also have personal experience of SEN and disability so can understand client’s difficulties on a personal and professional level.

SEN Legal are one of the only law firms to provide legal advice exclusively in relation to special educational needs and disability. We do not perform any other type of law (property, wills, etc) so clients can be reassured that all of our Solicitors are expert in what they do.

Here at SEN Legal we are extremely proud of our consistent success rate of over 90% for the last decade. Our latest success rate was 97% in 2023.

SEN Legal is approachable, client-focused, and supportive. It offers a sympathetic understanding to families who feel they have been let down by their Local Authority. Whilst the firm is proud of its reputation for robust representation for its clients, we offer an extremely committed, family friendly approach to its work.

  • SEND Tribunals; appealing the content of an EHC Plan, appealing the Local Authority’s decision not to issue an EHC Plan, appealing the Local Authority’s decision not to undertake an EHC Needs Assessment, and appealing the Local Authority’s decision to Cease to Maintain an EHC Plan
