I am an experienced Mental Capacity lawyer specialising in Court of Protection work and Elderly matters. I qualified as a Solicitor in 2004 after completing my training in London. I initially specialised in property work and have worked with the elderly and vulnerable for over a decade.

I find Court of Protection work rewarding, I enjoy helping to “put right” situations and protecting the vulnerable. Each case is so very different and the work I do can range from assisting the elderly to managing large building projects for children who have been awarded compensation for birth injuries. I work with accountants, case managers, architects and families every day.

I have experience in dealing with complex Court of Protection matters relating to Property and Affairs and Mental Capacity work.

Career Highlights

  • Acting for a 90 year old lady in a highly complex battle between her family who kept removing her from her residence. Our role as property and affairs deputy was to resolve difficult property and trust issues which were successfully concluded at Court. I ensured that her assets were protected and costs orders made against defaulting parties.
  • Handling an international cross border matter in the Netherlands, concerning the Deputyship of a young girl with cerebral palsy. I successfully achieved recognition of the Deputy’s authority to purchase a property in the Netherlands whilst dealing with the application of European Regulations at the Court of Protection.
  • Managing a £1million property project for an injured child in Cornwall, working with a multi-discipline team to build a bespoke property.
