“Thanks to Anita, I was successful in my representation for my DBS. She helped me in my time of need and for that I’m very grateful. Anita is very professional and did her best to support and advocate for me.”
“During a particularly difficult negotiation with our local authority regarding a SEN school placement, Anita’s services were invaluable. She was knowledgeable, responsive and professional, and her interventions resulted in us getting the placement we wanted without needing to go to tribunal or judicial review – a result in which we had given up hope.”
“Our 11 year old son, who was very early in his secondary school career and previously had no history at all of bad behaviour, unfortunately made a very dangerous choice in response to a deeply emotional trigger linked to grief. Nobody was harmed but he did commit an offence. As a consequence, the school threw the book at him, permanently excluding him in an instant and overnight we were plunged into an emotional and legal nightmare. Fortunately we engaged Anita’s help early on and she provided clear, experienced but most importantly empathetic advice. She also took control of the communications with relevant parties. In the end, Anita helped us right through the process, along with a fantastic barrister recommended by Anita who represented us at the governors disciplinary panel and subsequently at an Independent Review Panel. The outcome of the whole process was never a foregone conclusion, the situation was extremely complex and Anita rightly did not keep us under any illusions. However she always remained positive, candid and constructive. Ultimately the IRP recommended that the governors reconsider and a second governors panel reinstated our son.”
“Anita was honest, clear and extremely approachable. Her advice and guidance was invaluable and left me with a clear strategy which successfully gave the result and outcome that I wanted. I would highly recommend her and commission her services again without any doubt. Her knowledge of education and SEND law was excellent.”
“Anita responded quickly and briefly listened to my concerns, which many solicitors insist on payment prior to any conversation. She was clear and realistic in the outcome, yet caring and gave advice even after the initial consultation. I would highly recommend her.”
“I would like to express my gratitude to you Anita for your work on my daughter’s case. the events leading to her case has had the most devastating impact on our life. the result in wining our case means some closure and a positive impact to my daughter’s life. Thank you and good luck with your work going forward.”
“Getting into a potential conflict with a school is an emotional experience because it involves the ones you love the most, your children. It is hard to stay level-headed, calm and exercise good judgement. It is important to have someone on your side who does. Anita is just such a person. Emphatic certainly, but moreover calm, precise, accurate and, extremely knowledgeable. We did reach the outcome we were hoping for, much of this thanks to Anita’s guidance and support.”
“Without Anita, we would not have won our appeal. As parents, we would have been lost in a time that clarity of mind to do what was needed. Her expertise and pragmatic approach to school exclusion leads quick resolution and peace of mind. Thank you for your help.”
“Anita was amazing from the start of the process to the end of the process. The communication from Anita was fantastic and the response time was quick and informative. Anita helped me in so many ways and I am forever grateful. It was a stressful time and Anita supported, listened and guided me through it with her knowledge and expertise. Her attention to detail for my case was outstanding and she helped me achieve the best result. Forever grateful. Highly recommended.”
“If you are looking for an Employment Solicitor, please don’t look any further. Anita is a first class professional who goes the extra mile to support and guide you. I didn’t realise solicitors like her existed! My case was extremely complex and continued for a number of months due to its complexity and backlog in the court system. Anita’s expertise, patience and kindness never ran out and she guided and advised me through the most difficult and distressing months of my life. I am forever grateful. Anita gave me strength and I don’t know where I would have been without her guidance and assistance.”
“Anita was very patient with us and articulated the strategy on how best to deal with our situation. She helped us to avoid doing anything that could have acted against us. So thanks again, without her, we would not have achieved the outcome we did. The work she did was spot on and laid the ground work better than anything we could have done.”
“Anita is a fabulous education lawyer. I trusted her completely and felt that like my daughter’s case was in the best hands. Her communication was wonderful and advice very thorough. Thank you.”
