I am a solicitor working across all aspects of Court of Protection matters.
This involves helping individuals who are not deemed to have the legal capacity to manage their property and finances. This could be due to a wide range of reasons including suffering a brain injury, dementia or any other cognitive impairment.
I also assist in health and welfare Court of Protection matters, this involves helping a person or a family member who wishes to challenge a deprivation of liberty safeguard (Dols), clients who are challenging decisions relating to residence, care, treatment, contact with loved ones and other aspects of life.
I am driven by helping some of the most vulnerable people in our society during difficult periods of their lives.
