All testimonials


Match Solicitors offered me a nearly perfect service. Match Solicitors play a very important role in protecting Students.

Miss Li, Beijing

Match Solicitors were highly recommended to us not only for their undisputed comprehensive knowledge of the SEN legal minefield, but for their understanding of autism and other disorders and consequent compassionate work ethic. Their diligence and consummate professionalism ensured that the Local Authority were forced to take our son’s case seriously. It is almost impossible to articulate how grateful we are to Rishi and Anita for their hard work and dedication.

Mr & Mrs Williams, Hertfordshire

Match Solicitors would definitely be my first choice, when I need to work with solicitors, who are specialists in education Law.
