Education Law Specialist
Liz Smith joined Watkins Solicitors in 2003 as an Education Advisor, having previously qualified and worked as a teacher.
Liz works with parents on a wide range of education matters, including admissions and exclusions, successfully representing parents at appeal; advising on complex cases and areas of law and securing excellent outcomes for families. However, the bulk of her work involves working with families and children with Special Educational Needs.
‘I thoroughly enjoy my job,’ says Liz. ‘I have no hesitation in fighting for what is right for a family and their child. Getting the right decision on education can be life-changing and make all the difference.’
Liz has also developed a particular skill and expertise on cases involving ABA.
