Match Solicitors is proud to be taking part in this year's Autism Show on 16 and 17 June at the ExCel Exhibition Centre in London.

the service I received from yourselves - and consistency - is the best I have experienced in dealing with any solicitors.
Miss E Field, London
The service was first class and I was encouraged by the Solicitors sound knowledge of education law. Having a child with special needs is a challenge to any parent and the whole process of going to an educational tribunal can be quite daunting. Match Solicitors was able to get the job done professionally and to the highest standard and yet still retaining a very caring and human side which was very reassuring.

I would be very willing to recommend Match Solicitors to anyone else needing a specialist education solicitor. They were thorough, knowledgeable, worked in a timely manner and were generally a pleasure to work with.
