Mental Capacity

Power of Attorney

A complete legal service

We are specialists in acting on behalf of the mentally incapacitated. Led by a Court of Protection Panel Deputy, our team can advise on all aspects of mental capacity, from care home funding eligibility to appointing Powers of Attorney.


Mental capacity issues can affect anyone at any stage in their life. Our specialist team are dedicated to providing expert support, advice and representation on any mental capacity issue to the individuals themselves or their friends and families.

Whether you wish to make a Power of Attorney so you can help a parent manage their finances or set up a disabled person's trust to provide for your son or daughter after you have gone, we can help.

Melinda Giles heads the team and has gained a wealth of experience in a range of mental capacity cases from her role as one of 60 Panel Deputies for the Court of Protection. As such, we are also experts in any dealings with the Court and can approach it on your behalf if necessary.
