I have been a solicitor practising in Oldham since 1990 and specialise in Family and Mental Health Law.
As an accredited member of Resolution I am committed to ensuring the best advice for individual clients in family cases at a time when they most need independent and strong advice, with an ability to remain objective, ensuring that the long term interests of the family are met. I am also a member of the Law Society Family Panel.
As a member of The Law Society's Children Panel I regularly represent parents in proceedings concerning their children brought by local authorities. I am committed in these cases to speaking on behalf of the parents in court and representing their interests.
I have been a member of The Law Society's Mental Health Panel since 1994 and regularly represent patients before Mental Heath Tribunals and Hospital Managers hearings. Along with my Colleagues at Gruber Garratt I believe we are a strong team who give a voice to vulnerable people at difficult times in their lives.
As part of my Mental Health practise I have also represented families in hearings before The Court of Protection as to their relatives best interests.This is a new and complicated area of work and again my priority is the strong representation of my client at a difficult time.I will also explore with any patient,family member or individual any legal issues that arise as a result of their mental health.
As part of Garratts family and Mental Health team we provide services for our clients when they are at their most vulnerable and in need of support.
