Julie Eveleigh is an experienced solicitor who specialises in special educational needs law. She is also a volunteer tribunal support adviser for the special educational needs law charity, IPSEA.
She is well aware of the additional pressures of caring for a child or young person who has unmet special educational needs or is transferring from one phase of education to another. Her work involves helping parents secure from their local authority the provision and placement that will meet their children's needs, achieve the best educational outcomes and prepare them for the future.
She can assist with the whole process of obtaining an effective EHC plan or amended statement of special educational needs (while the legal framework is in transition). She can help with preparation for important annual reviews and transfer reviews, in particular those which anticipate a change in school or other placement. She acts for parents who appeal to the SEND Tribunal if their local authority does not agree to carry out an assessment, issue a statement or EHC plan, or agree to the necessary provision and/or placement.
She provides well-informed and practical advice, and is dedicated to obtaining for children and young people with special educational needs the education that they require. She is based in London but can often advise families who are further afield. Fees are competitive and can usually be capped at an agreed figure. It costs nothing to make an enquiry.
