Education Law Paralegal
I cannot praise Simpson Millar enough for their help with our daughter’s secondary school appeal. Lydia equipped us with the knowledge needed to help us to raise key points in preparation for our appeal and gave us great advice and support, which ultimately resulted in a successful appeal!
From the first point of contact with Simpson Millar to the end process of the school appeal they were professional, diligent and supportive. Excellent service, I would highly recommend!Emma M
