Mental Health and Court of Protection

One of the most important factors in the Mental Health process is having the right solicitor - and no one understands this better in the West Midlands than CMHT based in the heart of Walsall.  We have undertaken Mental Health work for over 30 years and we have experienced, dedicated and knowledgeable solicitors that are on hand to help you through the mental health process.

Court of Protection and Deprivation of Liberty

The Court of Protection looks after people who do not have the mental capacity to make decisions for themselves when there is a dispute between people as to what is in their best interests.  A person may lack capacity because of a mental health condition, a learning disability or a consequence of old age and dementia.  The decisions a court can make  cover such things as where a person lives, who to have contact with, whether to get married and how they should be cared for. 

The Court of Protection also considers issue in relation to the deprivation of liberty of people who lack capacity.

We understand how distressing and difficult this process can be and have a team of dedicated solicitors who  work closely with our clients to ensure they remain involved in the decision making process and understand what is being done on their behalf.  We also assist family members where necessary.
