"We have just been discussing that we are both so delighted with the result and still can’t quite believe it. We are really pleased that we engaged your team for our daughter."
Mr and Mrs H

"We approached Geldards to have our son’s EHPC updated to reflect his needs and provision and also support our application to the LA to fund his school fees. At each stage of the process, Adam and Lucy provided clear explanations and it was clear that they had a wealth of expertise and knowledge in the field of SEND law. From all members of the team; Adam, Douglas, Lucy and Jane we received an outstanding level of professionalism. They were also considerate to our financial situation, suggesting savings wherever possible. We are very thankful to Geldards and would be happy to recommend and use their services again."
Mr & Mrs P

"What has been a very long and hard fight has received the outcome that was deserved. I would just like to say a very big thank you to each and every one of you for your part you played in fighting to get what L needs in order to be happy and to help him to achieve his full potential. You were all amazing and there is no way this outcome could have been achieved without you. The whole court experience was not parent friendly and had it just been me representing myself in front of the judge we had I don't think the same outcome would have been achieved."
Mr and Mrs F

"Geldards helped us understand how we could achieve our goal of getting P into a school suited for her. They were kind understanding and v helpful all the way through. We thank you so much for helping us on this journey. Now P can get the education she deserves! Thank Adam, Kevin, Lucy , Douglas and the whole team."
Mr and Mrs H

"We will be eternally grateful and thankful for your help in achieving what J needs to begin his educational journey at his new school, to have the opportunity to fulfill to his potential and be happy."
Miss B and Mr S

"We are so relieved to get C the help she needs. It is such a wonderful feeling to know that she will now be given a fair chance to reach her potential like any other child. You and the team have been absolutely brilliant through what has definitely been the most challenging time of our lives. Thank you."
Ms W

"'We feel J is on the right path now and is in an environment where he can flourish and it’s already made a huge difference to all of us. Nobody knows what his future holds but at least he has the same chances as everyone else now and that’s really life-changing for us all."
Mr and Mrs L

"We still can’t believe it!! As a family we all want to say a massive THANK YOU to each of you who made up the amazing team that has made this possible!! It’s the best Christmas present ever, knowing that our daughter is going to start her new school in January, a wonderful new start to a new year!"
