Court of Protection, Mental Capacity and Powers of Attorney

Whether it is through age, injury or illness, there are times when a family member or loved one may lack the mental capacity to make important decisions. This is where our Court of Protection solicitors can help.

Our team of specialist lawyers works closely with vulnerable adults or minors and their families to protect their best interests. We guide them through the maze of personal and financial matters concerning accommodation, benefits, care packages and more. What’s more, we can assist either with appointing Deputies or acting as a Deputy to look after sensitive or important decisions.

We can also help you plan for the future by creating a Lasting Power of Attorney. This allows you to appoint someone you trust to make decisions on your behalf, in case you are unable to do so. While it may be a ‘worst case scenario’, it’s well worth being prepared for every eventuality. Whatever the situation, we will always provide clear, jargon-free advice that everyone can understand.

“An excellent and very reliable team… a great firm to work with.”
