Match successfully assists student who was refused legal representations

Match successfully assists student who was refused legal representations

Our client was informed of an investigation against him alleging serious misconduct of a sexual nature, upon which he was invited to a Disciplinary Hearing at the University and faced permanent exclusion if he were to been found guilty of the offence. The complexity of this case was heightened further due to his diagnosis of Asperger Syndrome and the fact that despite knowledge of this, the University refused to allow him to be legally represented during the proceedings.

We assisted our client by drafting his written submissions, collating all the evidence available on the matter and ensuring that he was as best prepared as possible to provide an oral testimony against the allegations which had been made against him. This led to the allegations being discredited and all allegations against him withdrawn.  Our client has since settled back into life at University, is continuing with his studies and currently back on track towards achieving a positive result in his degree.

I felt Match always kept me informed and abreast of procedures with legal explanation wherever necessary. arose I would have no hesitation in approaching Match again and would have pleasure in recommending their services to anyone in need of professional educational assistance.

Ms Noel, Middlesex

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.

Whilst the SENDIST appeal process requires patience and clarity, we found Match Solicitors provided a faultless service. Diligent whilst being understanding. Our son is now in the school we required and is thriving due to the support of Match Solicitors throughout the process.
