"Hi Emma, Thank you so much for all your hard work helping us get Z her place and a fantastic EHCP. She's so excited about starting at her new school and we are so relieved that she will finally get all the support she needs.  It will be truly life changing for her and for us as a family. I will highly recommend you to anyone needing legal representation in these matters. Many thanks." 

IR  October 2021

"Hello Emma, We just wanted to take a moment to say thank you so much for all the time, energy, and determination you committed to securing P's EHCP. It has been quite an ordeal, and although it is not over (and won't be for many years) the crucial foundations have been successfully laid - THANK YOU! These things are never straight forward and it was hard enough doing once so we cannot imagine what it must be like doing that day in, day out. You are very strong. Many thanks once again, although P is not aware of all the paddling under the surface that takes place in his honour he will one day be very thankful too."

B & I  October 2021

PM  August 2019 

"Dear Emma, that's great news, phew, we got there in the end!! I just wanted to say thanks so much for all your help and hard work getting to this point. It has been a pleasure working with you, you are so knowledgeable and efficient. I didn't quite believe it would be this "easy", especially getting that OT and SALT provision funded. You hear so many horror stories in the news about kids being denied even basic services.. I'm so glad we managed to avoid an expensive and stressful tribunal thanks to you. I'm sure that we'll have more battles ahead but for now we can relax a little and hope that H has a great year now he has the provision he needs in order to thrive."

MH  August 2019


I just wanted to say thank you very much for all you did in order to get the settlement agreed in time for the payment to be made yesterday. 

I really appreciate the fact you picked up and responded to emails whilst out of the office - and am especially grateful that you sacrificed your own family time to work on my behalf well into the evening, which is above and beyond what I could have asked of you. 

You have been really helpful and I would not hesitate to recommend you to anyone else needing advice/assistance with any employment related issues. 

I wish you all the best in the future and thank you again for your assistance. 

Kind regards"  Mr M  July 2019


"Dear Beverley and Emma, thank you so much for stepping in and helping secure such an amazing result for L.  We are hugely grateful for your advice, knowledge, hard work and patience with our many questions.  L is thrilled she is going to C School and this outcome will make a huge difference to all of our lives.

With many thanks from M and R"  July 2019

Mr I and family  May 2019

"Dear Liz, thank you so much for all your help and support over the past 2 years. Your expert knowledge has been invaluable to us and we are extremely grateful for everything you have done.  We had complete faith in your advice and guidance every step of the way. Your patience is also very admirable!"​

Mr K  April 2019

"I just wanted to say thank you so much for the advice you have given, it has helped us enormously, not just for Graham’s situation, but also his older brother’s Phil.  You opened our eyes to how EHCP’s should be, legal rights, etc., and we took all the excellent advice you have provided for Graham, and used this to facilitate getting Phil an EHCP.  We were issued Phil’s draft on Friday, which had a few important omissions (e.g. they removed EP’s advice on occupational therapy), and got them to amend the draft in just 1 day.  Len will now be issued a final EHCP in a few days, which is totally fit for purpose, and has only taken 4 months from initial request."

"This would not have happened without all the amazing information / advice you have provided.  So a double thank you."

Mrs C  February 2019

Thank you Liz, it's such great news, beginning of a new chapter.  We just need
to thank you Liz and "Watkins Solicitors" for incredible support and belief.

Tony gave good, clear precise informative services, was very friendly and made things easy to understand.
Mr T  May 2018

Liz. Thank you very much for today.  I was completely impressed by your professionalism, articulate summary and points made throughout the hearing and active advocacy for D in terms of meeting her need.  I felt that you also had an excellent and in-depth knowledge of both D, her individualised needs and the ABA programme and was completely blown away.  From an expert witness.

May 2018

Thank you Angela for your professionalism and sincerity

Looking forward to bumping into you on the allotment some time.

March 2018

Dear Lydia, thank you so much for your help in this matter. L now has a place in the B School starting next September so the outcome couldn't have been better.

Comments following our EHC Needs Assessment Parents Information Day in Bristol on 2.2.2018

“Thank you – very useful.  Have learned a lot and had some misinformation corrected!”

“Many thanks for supporting parents in this way”

“I wish I’d had this three years ago as school has been evasive”

“Very useful to meet other parents in the same boat – with kids with SEND”

“This was very useful (if exhausting) event.  Thank you!”

“Very informative, given me more confidence in starting our EHCP application”


"We can not thank Beverley Watkins and her team enough for her invaluable expertise and support over what I can only say is an immensely challenging time when working against a recalcitrant SEN department. From the start Beverley made it clear what our legal position was in helping to win our case. We won our case having secured a place at St Roses school for a daughter which is everything we hoped for. We highly recommend Watkins Solicitors to all other parents in similar situations who want to maintain suitable schools for their children."

Mr B  January 2018

Comments following our EHC Needs Assessment Parents Information Day in Hereford on 26.1.2018

“Very obvious that you all really care about SEN and gaining the right plans and placements for our children, some very good information, I have attended a number of events but this was the most entertaining!”

“Watkins Solicitors are very knowledgeable and friendly and absolutely brilliant.  Thank you so much, this will make a huge difference to my two autistic children.  Very funny too, loved it.”

“Spot on.  Should be run more often”.

“Great!  Thank you.”

“Very informative.”

“Would like similar events on any aspect of the SEN provision, difficulties faced within the education system by SEN kids and their families!”

“I could listen to you all day!”

“Fab day!”

“Watkins Solicitors are very knowledgeable and friendly and absolutely brilliant.  Thank you so much, this will make a huge difference to my two autistic children.  Very funny too, loved it.”

"Thank you, Lydia, for all your help and support over 2017.

Mrs C  January 2018

“Thank you Tamsin for all the kindness and support you have given me over the past few months.  Your knowledge and patience and guidance was second to none, I can now enjoy a good Christmas with my amazing  family”

Ms S  January 2018

"I would like to thank Beverley and Catherine for everything you both have done... long time coming... but we got there in the end..."

Mr S  January 2018 

"I recently completed your feedback form regarding dealing with estate of my late mother.  I am following up this feedback with this email as I feel that service we received from not only Mr Calwell but the Kingswood office was exceptional.


The first port of call to any business is the front desk.  Your receptionist Geraldine was very considerate to the emotional situation my father and myself were dealing with shortly after my mother's death.  As you can imagine this period was difficult and I must say Geraldine from the first visit was welcoming, professional with a 'TLC' approach. She was quick to offer coffee whilst we awaited our appointment with Mr Calwell and ensured we felt at ease in the office with 'small talk'.  As our business took a few visits, it was a pleasure that Geraldine built of an acquaintance with us to create a relaxed atmosphere on each visit.   


So thank you for a smooth incredible professional and approachable service from Geraldine as soon as you walk through the door, to Mr Calwell who gave advice and sorted out all our requests.  

Ms G  October 2017

"Victoria Hancock-Pritchard - I cant express my gratitude and applause you for your efforts made."

Mr and Mrs C  September 2017

Feedback from our SEN EHC Needs Assessment and Plans in Cornwall on 22.9.2017

“Cornwall Needs SEN Support! So a great event.  I know many parents who also have children with CFS/ME who need this advice also”

“I found this event very helpful, I learnt some very useful information”

“It was fantastic, thank you!”

“Very informative.  Lots of great advice.  In a fun informal setting”

“Very informative.  I will be passing details onto other parents, many could not make today”

“Great answers to questions which could be asked throughout the day, very respectful of all attendees, good opportunities to question and ask for clarity on points delivered”

“Was good to be able to answer individual needs”

"I just wanted to take this opportunity to thank you all, for the informative SEN Information Day, at the Melting Pot Cafe in Redruth on Friday 22 September.

I attended with a group of friends and we all felt that it was a brilliant day, where we learned a lot more about SEN processes. I know it was the best presented and most factual advice and information session that I have attended, so I hope you continue with these sessions." 

80% of attendees rated the Conference excellent, 20% very good!

Ms P May 2017


I don't have your bosses email so if you could pass this on please.


Just a quick email to say thank you for today.  Usually court is a very stressful time and position to be in but you made me feel relaxed.  You dealt with things brilliantly and made it all very easy.  I really feel like you have listened to all my concerns and are really fighting my daughters corner. 


With the reports received from cafcass and social services it felt a relief for someone to be really listening and understanding.  Though I know there is still a long way to go I really appreciate your efforts so far and the work put in.  You have also been very clear of what is ahead and also possible outcomes and although I am still nervous as to what is to come I feel more at ease knowing I have someone that is listening which will make the process less stressful.


If you could pass on my recognition to your bosses about your reassuring and understanding and professional manner I would appreciate it as I'm sure you probably don't get much thanks for doing your job so well.


Kind regards"

K May 2017

“Dear Beverley

I hope you don’t mind me dropping you an email in regards to the service received today from your receptionist – Geraldine Codrick.

In my experience of liaising with solicitor firms, it is not often that I receive such an excellent service from front line, so thought it would be good to forward on some positive feedback to yourself and Watkins as a whole.

Geraldine was very polite, able to take the very limited information that I provided, locate the solicitor and was also able to resolve my query within a few minutes. This type of ownership allowed for no time to be wasted and the client to be given an informed choice regarding when they would like their sample collected.

If you can please pass on my thanks to Geraldine it would be appreciated.

Many Thanks L.”

Having been let down by education through all of her school life I’m hopeful that she can now make a success of college and get the help she needs/deserves. Thank you so so so so much!!! Look forward to receiving the final plan. Thank you for G’s best wishes for college. As much as I hope I don’t have to contact you again after it’s all settled, I appreciate you offering to be there in the future.
