Expert advice and representation in all Court matters
Led by one of the Court of Protection's Panel Deputies, our team can offer expert advice and representation on issues involving the court, helping you to get the best result for the person in your care.
At Giles Wilson, we can provide expert and measured advice to you about any Court of Protection issues that relate to a learning disabled individual, including applications for Powers of Attorney and the making of statutory wills.
We can help parents, guardians and carers ensure they can always make the best decisions for the people in their care by approaching the Court for an appointment as a Deputy for property and finance or for health and welfare. The Deputy can be someone close to the individual such as a parent or carer or, if such a person doesn't exist, the Court can appoint a Panel Deputy to make decisions on behalf of the vulnerable person.
In cases where a learning disabled individual, no matter how old, lacks the capacity to make their own will, we can help friends and relatives approach the Court to execute a statutory will on their behalf. A statutory will issued by the Court has the same legal validity as any standard will, and is administered in the same manner upon death.
