What Our Clients Think of Ffion

  • "Thanks to the hard work and professionalism of Ffion Davies at Simpson Millar, I was able to avoid going to Tribunal for my son’s ECHP. Ffion took my case on at very short notice, and worked closely and relentlessly with the Local Authority to get all of my son’s SEND support in place. She also kept me informed of each step along the way, carefully explaining issues and case law that were key to resolving this matter. Thanks to Ffion I now have a very comprehensive EHCP and EOTAS package in place for my son. This is nothing short of a miracle, and I could not have achieved any of this without her. I am very grateful for her services and advice through this very difficult process. I highly recommend her services, worth her weight in gold!"
