Comments received from some of our clients.

Miss Mawji is a very professional solicitor within the field of Further and Higher Education law. Her assistance was strong and effective. Match Solicitors offered me a nearly perfect service. Match Solicitors play a very important role in protecting students.

I received a first class service from their professional staff. I would use Match Solicitors again.

Anita was both friendly and matter of fact.

Miss L Thomas, Basingstoke

I was very pleased with the work that was done on my behalf by Match Solicitors. Everyone involved in my case was helpful and professional. They listened carefully to what I wanted and were always thoughtful and well-considered in the advice they offered. Everyone I dealt with at Match Solicitors was polite and friendly, phone messages were always passed on and my calls were always returned. 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.

Mrs McMahon, Cambridge

I had a positive and impressive experience. Match Solicitors would definitely be my first choice, when I need to work with solicitors, who are specialists in education Law.

Miss Kav, London

The service provided was very good and the quality of work was excellent.

Ms L Clack, Middlesex

I received very good advice, prompt and effective. Match Solicitors were very professional. Fears that instructing solicitors might escalate matters proved unfounded. Our difference with the school ended promptly and satisfactorily.

Mr J Kelly, London

Very professional and efficient.

Mr Lewis, London

Even though this was one of the most stressful and difficult situations I have been in, the service I received from yourselves - and consistency - is the best I have experienced in dealing with any solicitors. Included in this is the range and depth of experience and the willingness to bring in expert opinion at critical moments.

Miss E Field, London

Faced with an uncertain future for our autistic son’s education we had no alternative but to resort to legal action against our Local Authority who had refused him an appropriate school place. After a lengthy research process Match Solicitors were highly recommended to us by our Educational Psychologist 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. We were not disappointed.

From our first appointment with Anita and Rishi we knew that our case was in the best possible hands and throughout the months that followed they guided and reassured us through each step of what is an incredibly stressful tribunal process. Their diligence and consummate professionalism ensured that the Local Authority were forced to take our son’s case seriously, rather than treating him with the contempt that they had previously shown; referring to him as ‘an inefficient use of resource.’

Match have ensured that our son’s Statement was amended to appropriately reflect his needs and required provision and successfully forced the change of Part 4, naming our chosen school and not the local comprehensive, where he would quite likely have suffered a nervous breakdown. Our case was finally settled after many months but prior to tribunal, saving us from the associated stress and the further financial implication.

It is almost impossible to articulate how grateful we are to Rishi and Anita for their hard work and dedication. They have secured our son’s secondary education in an appropriate, supportive environment where we hope he will learn vital life skills and give him a future to look forward to, not be afraid of.

Mr & Mrs Williams, Hertfordshire

Absolutely outstanding from all members of the team...so efficient, professional and absolute experts, such a pleasure to work with, I’ll be referring all who ask to your services... Many Thanks!

Zaid Ali - East Sussex

I was very pleased with the service provided to me. My University was able to allow me to re-submit and I now have a BSC in Public Health Nursing. Thank you very much. I will recommend you to others.

Mrs Meck, Essex

I was informed as to my position with regard to undertaking legal action. The staff were cordial and seemed to have a genuine concern for my position.

Mr. P Stott, Canterbury

Both Anita and Rishi were extremely well prepared, proactive and encouraging - an important characteristic for a parent confronting the uncertainty and angst of taking on a local authority for a Secondary School placement. Their willingness to meet and accept the brief, along with their immediate and consistent follow through, not only gave me confidence in the decision to challenge the local authority but also contributed significantly to the seriousness with which the local authority responded to the challenge.

Mr J Bennett, West Sussex

Professional, approachable, helpful. Good communication and friendly staff members; helpful in stressful situations when you require legal help. Many thanks for the work you carried out for me. I wouldn’t hesitate to use your firm again in the future, and will also happily recommend you to others requiring help.

Mrs Shaistah Siddiq-Zeidan, Exeter

I was very happy with the communication and advice offered. Anita was always very professional and kept me fully informed of my options and position at all times. I would not hesitate to recommend Match Solicitors to anyone.

Mr C Halford, Surrey

Very helpful, efficient advice. Very helpful people on the telephone and efficient staff. Very pleased with the service.

Mrs Gordon, London

Both Anita and Emma were helpful and available to give advice. The complaints process was lengthy and frustrating but they were supportive throughout and, due to their expertise, I knew exactly what to expect. They managed the process with the right level of care and honesty.

Ms Edwards, Kent

I was very impressed with the quality of work and attention to detail. The matter involved tons of paperwork spanning several years and this was all beautifully prepared and presented. 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.

Mrs O Akagbosu, London

The service provided was excellent. The Firm provided a speedy service and gave full support at such short notice which I am grateful for. They continued to give aftercare and guidance.

Miss J Gooden

My experience with Match Solicitors was a thoroughly pleasant one. I felt listened to and at my initial consultation I was given an honest objective opinion. My input was always taken on board and incorporated into the documentation sent to my Medical School. A very friendly Firm. Would be happy to recommend to others who find themselves at odds with their University.

Mr K Parmar, Middlesex

The quality of work was highly professional, sensitive and yet firm. The service received from Match Solicitors was faultless; highly professional and efficient. The advice received was extremely sound and sensible. The service was fairly priced. I have no hesitation in recommending Match Solicitors and they would be first choice if the necessity arose again.

Mr Moore, Kent

I found Anita Chopra to be efficient and effective in dealing with my case, most importantly to me she is a no doubt a well balanced, decent human being. I would have no hesitation in using Match Solicitors in the future or recommending them to the best of my friends.

Mr Stephens, Carnforth

I cannot thank Rishi enough for his work on this case. He remained focused and committed throughout. The service Match Solicitors has provided me with has been professional throughout, right from the first meeting with Salima through to the final decision.


I am extremely happy with the service received by all at Match Solicitors and would not hesitate in using them again should the need arise or in recommending them.

Amanda Christie

Our experience was a good one. Concise, relevant advice and above all honest. Whilst the SENDIST appeal process requires patience and clarity, we found Match Solicitors provided a faultless service. Diligent whilst being understanding. Thorough whilst being patient. Our son is now in the school we required and is thriving due to the support of Match Solicitors throughout the process.

Mr D Cameron, London

The quality of the work and the service provided by Match Solicitors was excellent.

Mr A Franklin, Surrey

I felt at ease whilst at the offices of Match Solicitors. I would certainly recommend the service they have provided to anyone experiencing issues regarding Education law.

Miss Spillman, Barking

Not knowing what to expect with regard to outcome, I found the quality of work prepared on my behalf first class.

I found the approach by Anita Chopra extremely professional while retaining a friendly, patient and sensitive manner. Indeed the courtesy and friendliness of the Firm always shone through.

I found the overall service extremely professional, knowledgeable, efficient and sensitive with regard to my matter. I felt Match always kept me informed and abreast of procedures with legal explanation wherever necessary. What I most appreciated was hearing the facts – positive and negative as my matter progressed in order for me to make informed decisions as time went on. In addition, the same goes for potential fees, as this can play a great part in decision making.

I am grateful for the work carried out by Match, especially with the fantastic outcome of my case - judgement in favour, unfair dismissal and race discrimination. If the need ever 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. Thank you!

Ms Noel, Middlesex

Match Solicitors were very helpful in securing a successful outcome to my daughter’s appeal, especially as they were prepared to take the case on so late in the day.

Dr Norman, Surrey

Match gave us prompt, objective and knowledgeable advice. Rishi, on our behalf, wrote an appeal case which was thorough, professional and most importantly successful! We will forever be in debt to them and would recommend their services highly.

Mrs Shaw, Northants

We were very happy to hand over our case to Match Solicitors and allow them to do what they do best - they won our appeal. Although it was a very stressful time, they took the time to keep us informed and we would not hesitate to recommend them. They make no guarantees but at least you know, whether you win or lose, they have done their best for your child.

Mr & Mrs O'Dea, Surrey

Exemplary, professional, supportive, and empathetic. Polite and responsive. A pleasure to work with. It is important to note the somewhat uniqueness of the case, the complaint resulted in significant changes in the school and the compensation figure. Match Solicitors are extremely fortunate to have staff of the calibre of Rishi in their employ, he was always seen throughout as an excellent ambassador for the firm.

Mr Reekie, Croydon

Excellent service. Will recommend Match Solicitors to friends and fellow students. Moreover, I will use Match Solicitors again if circumstances in the future require that.

Mr Lehr, London

We wanted to personally express our appreciation for helping us with our recent appeal. We can't believe that we were given a place at the school but we are deeply grateful. You kept us well informed and explained all our options right through the process. We know it must be difficult to see the personal benefits that come from winning a case, but the difference this will make for our family life are immeasurable and we are truly grateful. Thank you once again.


Nicole was always sensitive to the situation and my needs. She gave excellent advice and support throughout. I felt she really listened and was on my side.

Ms S Dhanda, Cambridge

Nicole was very good at liaising with our daughter at all times using the correct understanding of a client with Asperger's Syndrome.


Can't fault the personal service that we were given.


Outstanding and impressive advice by both Mr Mital and Ms Mawji throughout all processes. Will definitely use your services again and anyone else with any education matter should do the same.

Mr P Ratanshi, London

I would highly recommend Match Solicitors to any person with difficulties in higher education. I received an extremely professional but yet personable service. Rishi in particular was very engaged and able to provide the best possible service one could hope for. Thank you again for all your help.


I appreciate all your help in persuading the local authority to help my son!



Charles Enang, London

Kevin was very professional and always remained one step ahead. He was very attentive to all of my concerns and clearly works for the best interest of his client...I will definitely use Match again in the future should I require a solicitor.


All round excellent - thank you

Richard Ashcroft

Rishi was very professional and helpful at all times. He was always available and there when needed, providing much needed reassurance.

Mr W Franks, Middlesex

I would highly recommend Match Solicitors as an agent which assist University students through dilemma. Particularly for international students who do not understand the appeal rules well, Match Solicitors is the one you are looking for.


The advice to specifically target our appeal based on our daughter's character and the ethos of the intended school was excellent.


Ms Henham was our guardian angel. She was a true strength for both my husband and myself. Without her belief, honesty, clarity of thought and support we would have been lost in a world totally new to us. She lead us through each day and ended the day with a warmth and kindness we had never felt before. She has a way about her that gave us so much strength. She is quite unique. She is an amazing person and we all truly wish her the very best. When we first met you, we were at the end. We had prayed and hoped to meet someone who truly believed us. You were clear and honest but you were there for us. Thank you for showing us the way at a time when we needed someone to be there for us.

Mrs Brooks, London

Anita is a very knowledgeable legal adviser in the field of education. What makes Anita unique is her approach. She listens to clients and respects their input and views thus delivering an individual service to clients. I would recommend Anita's work and have seen first hand, the results of her work and the difference she makes.

A.C. Jones

I found Anita an excellent advocate for my son refused entry to our school of choice and principally giving poor and unjust reasons. In short Anita and her team assisted me in defending my corner using her experience in the Education Law and helping my son through the numerous stages of this injustice. My son successfully won his second appeal but not before facing the Ombudsman with a judicial review. Ultimately Anita and her team cannot be praised enough. Some years later my other son also was unsuccessful in being admitted and once again unlike my first issue with the school I went straight to Anita where we once again battled through the injustice. Having an expert on board from the start made the process quicker, the team won and the appeals conclude that the admission criteria was unlawful. I highly recommend Anita for her professionalism during my need for assistance in 2005 and 2009.

Frank Amat, London

Helpful, friendly and knowledgeable throughout. Would use the firm again and recommend it to others.

Steven Wisdom, London

Excellent service. The consultation gave me a clear and complete course of action required and I was able to clear up the problem without legal action. Thank you.



Simon Watson, Herts

Kind, compassionate and efficient solicitors who make you feel human.


I highly recommend everyone to use match solicitor if needed. They provide excellent and fast service during very short period of time. The member of staff are very helpful and I would like to thank everyone specially Salise and Salima who was dealing with my case. I had completely lost my hope but they are the people who brought enlightenment in my life. Best wishes.


I am totally delighted by the services provided to me. The crucial time when I was emotionally and physically drowned by an academic accusation, Match Solicitor gave an enlightenment to my case and my academic career,I won my case and I am now doing degree in Adult Nursing. Very friendly, co-operative and efficient staffs, namely Salima Mawji and Rizvan Mussa fully involved in my case despite of very tight deadline for an appeal. Furthermore, I would recommend this firm to everybody.

Mohina Basnet Rai, Ashford

Nicole is excellent. She was always very attentive, meticulous and extremely organised.

David Wickenden, London

The lawyers at Match were excellent and very focused on the outcome. They have a great level of insight and experience and were open to robust discussion
