Vulnerable Adults

I have extensive experience relating to the care of Vulnerable Adults, including providing advice to families, deputies, local authorities and social workers, and providing representation in Court of Protection and High Court cases.

The legislative framework relating to adult social care can be extremely difficult to navigate and make sense of. I can provide advice and representation to help guide you through the following complex legal areas:

  • Decisions and disputes relating to care, medical treatment, mental capacity, deputies, management of finances and safeguarding.
  • Disputes with local authorities and Primary Care Trusts, relating to duty of care, care plans, tribunal representation, appointment and responsibility of guardians and advocates.
  • Issues with care homes, standards of care, costs of accommodation.

Cases involving Vulnerable Adults are often highly complex and emotive. I can provide expert guidance and representation in a sensitive and professional manner, protecting the best interests of some of the most vulnerable people.
