Director & Principal Solicitor
I am the author of the recently published Special Needs & Legal Entitlement – The Essential Guide to getting out the Maze, which is currently the only published work dealing with EHC Plans and SEND Tribunals.
I have over 20 years professional experience in this field and I am supported by a team of 15 staff, consisting of a mixture of solicitors, Legal Executives, Paralegals and Administrative staff.
I have three children, one of whom has Dyslexia, Dyspraxia and a severe Language Disorder and who had a Statement of Special Educational Needs throughout his education. He had a specialist independent school named in Part 4 of his Statement of Special Educational Needs since he was seven. He has now finished university, graduating with a 1st in Philosophy. As a result of my personal experience, I am committed to giving all of my clients the same level of care and attention that I gave to my own son throughout his education.
I am currently a Trustee of Hillingdon Autistic Care and Support (HACS) and have previously served terms as a Trustee of Hornsby, Dyslexia Action and SOS!SEN.

The ‘outstanding‘ Haley Mason is an ‘excellent negotiator’; she jointly heads up the firm, which acts for clients throughout England and Wales, with founding partner Melinda Nettleton.
Based in East Anglia, SEN Legal has a truly nationwide client base for education, special educational needs and disability work. The ‘very bright, super-organised‘ Hayley Dawn Mason in Cambridge and, in Bury St Edmunds, founding partner Melinda Nettleton (who is ‘a trailblazer in the field of SEN law‘), senior solicitor Nicole Lee and the ‘bright and proactive‘ James Brown act on behalf of parents to solve complex problems and secure special educational provisions for children and young people.
