Kirsty’s extensive experience in working with adults and children with mental health or mental capacity difficulties will strengthen the Court of Protection team’s holistic services and support to anyone who might lack the capacity to make decisions for themselves.
Kirsty is also a member of the Law Society panel of accredited mental health tribunal solicitors and represents clients who are detained (“sectioned”) or otherwise subject to compulsory powers under the mental health legislation.
Sheree Green, Court of Protection Lead at ACS said, “We are delighted that Kirsty has joined us and we look forward to seeing our Court of Protection health and welfare service go from strength to strength in Kirsty’s capable hands.”
