Mental Health Law

Mental Health Law is highly specialised area of law in which we are very proud of the services that we provide. We assist those suffering from mental health problems who are being compulsorily detained under the Mental Health Act 1983.

Our Mental Health department is led by an experienced Mental Health Panel Member, and we take pride in the level of care we give to our clients and their families. The team’s devotion to improving the quality of life of the firms’ clients is matched by their proficient knowledge in this area.

The team is concerned about the individual rights and liberties of those being detained under the Act and will always endeavour to assist patients in the exercise of their legal rights. We advise our clients while they are in hospital detention, including scrutinising all forms of medical treatment given to them. We have the knowledge and experience to conduct appeals as well as bring judicial review proceedings against administrative decisions of government departments.

Our team can arrange appointments at any hospital at short notice. Though based in Birmingham we routinely assist clients at locations across the country. Please contact us to speak to a specialist.
