A specialist legal service for the learning disabled
At Giles Wilson, we are specialist providers of expert advice and representation for parents and carers of learning disabled children, and for learning disabled individuals themselves.
From helping parents with dependant children to draft wills and trusts, to making Powers of Attorney for learning disabled teenagers and providing advice to families on funding for care, our dedicated Learning Disabled service can help individuals and parents with sensitive, trusted advice.
Led by Court of Protection Panel Deputy, Melinda Giles, a large amount of our work in this area comes in the form of referrals from charities and other organisations, who recognise Melinda's expertise in this complex area of the law and understand first-hand the help and guidance that Giles Wilson can offer.
