"Brilliant solicitors who were only ones to help us after trying for 2yrs to find someone to represent my SEN son for Educational Neglect and abuse. Kelly Darlington and her team were incredibly professional, efficient and tenacious. Appointing us a QC we won a very complex case against all the odds. Without Farleys we’d have been left ignored and invisible. Incredibly grateful to them who believed in us and were as determined to get us justice as we were in being heard. Cannot recommemd then highly enough. They came through for us when noone else would. Thank you Kelly and your incredible team."
