Protecting the vulnerable

Expert legal advice when you suspect exploitation

If you believe a vulnerable friend or relative is at risk of exploitation, Giles Wilson can act on any suspicion, providing a specialist service and expert advice to help protect the people closest to you.

At Giles Wilson, we are specialists at handling mental capacity cases, particularly ones where the client is vulnerable and at risk of exploitation. From advice on eligibility for care home fees and final years planning, to approaching the court of protection to obtain statutory wills and powers of attorney, we can provide advice and representation in whatever way is needed.

Led by Melinda Giles, who has a wealth of experience acting on behalf of vulnerable people in her role as a Court of Protection Panel Deputy, our team can help to guarantee the security of your loved one, keeping you in the loop every step of the way.
