Practice Areas

I specialise in community care, healthcare and mental capacity law. I act for clients who have ongoing difficulties with social services, the NHS and other public bodies. I've brought judicial review cases on behalf of children and adults seeking appropriate care from their local social services and the NHS.

I also act for clients opposing the closure of care homes, day centres and NHS services, and clients seeking to challenge cuts to government funding in health and social care. I've acted for disabled refugees, securing accommodation for them from local authorities under their community care duties.

I advise clients in relation to their rights to healthcare, medical treatment and other clinical disputes. These cases often raise issues of medical ethics and legal arguments relating to 'dignity', the 'right to life' or the 'right to healthcare'. I also act for clients seeking to be discharged from mental health Assessment and Treatment Units (ATUs). I also act for the Official Solicitor, Independent Mental Capacity Advocates (IMCAs) and for the families of vulnerable adults in cases in the Court of Protection under the Mental Capacity Act.

Professional Memberships

I'm a founder and national committee member of the Court of Protection Practitioners Association (CoPPA).
