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 This led to the allegations being discredited and all allegations against him withdrawn.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.

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.

Nicole was compassionate and understanding and really organised and professional. I do not believe I would have had a positive outcome without her.
