We provide legal support to address the major challenges in life and protect your family and finances.
From relationship breakdowns or personal injuries to property or criminal defence, we can help you achieve the best outcome for you and your family.
The Court of Protection’s purpose is to protect and make decisions for people who lack the mental capacity to make those decisions for themselves.
Mental incapacity can strike anyone, regardless of age, background or lifestyle. Illnesses such as dementia or Alzheimer’s disease, brain injuries and severe mental health issues can all be reasons why a person may be unable make their own decisions about their finances and/or personal welfare. If you believe that your loved one may need extra support, we are here to help.
With offices in Truro, Newquay, St Austell, Falmouth, Penzance, Holsworthy, Launceston and Liskeard, we are conveniently located and easily accessible for people across Cornwall and West Devon. We can also arrange home visits in certain circumstances.
We can help you with all matters relating to mental capacity and the Court of Protection. We understand that caring for someone who lacks mental capacity is an emotionally tiring job. It is likely you will want to support their independence for as long as possible and it can be difficult to accept when you or someone else may need to step in on their behalf.
We can provide practical advice and guidance and our expertise includes:
Head of Personal Disputes
