Education & Community Care Paralegal
Alice has worked for Simpson Millar and its predecessor, Colemans-ctts, since 2013, beginning in our Legal Processing Centre.
Before that, she had entered the legal profession with a niche Solicitors’ firm in south Manchester, where she undertook a variety of roles. This led to her being promoted to become a Fee Earning Paralegal, handling her own caseload of consumer credit work from start to finish.
Having moved to Colemans-ctts to broaden her knowledge and experience, Alice worked in the Holiday Claims department specialising in Personal Injury and contract cases, before moving to the Education Law and Community Care department.
Alice helps to secure appropriate education provision for children with Special Educational Needs and/or Disabilities, along with securing home to school transport, school admissions and exclusions, and judicial reviews. In addition, she regularly assists members of the team with Community Care and Court of Protection cases.
Alice is studying the CILEx (Chartered Institute of Legal Executives) course part-time. She is already an Associate member of CILEx, and hopes to qualify in the next couple of years.
Alice Hellewell handled my case against my local authority. I sought to secure additional educational provision for my daughter who has special needs. Alice supported me throughout the complex case which lasted nearly an entire year. She was very professional every step of the way. We won our appeal because of Alice's tireless efforts. I simply cannot praise her work enough. She's exceptional and a true credit to Simpson Millar.L. Cullen
