Why choose odonnells?
We offer a complete, joined-up service. The senior partner has personal experience of mental disorder in his family and has been involved with MIND, the mental health charity, for over two decades. This commitment runs throughout our practice, which specialises in every aspect of mental health law. From detention in hospital under the Mental Health Act 1983, to advising community patients, Lasting Powers of Attorney, guardianship, and Court of Protection, we know most answers because we have dealt with them. Specialism allows us to keep up to date with the flood of rules, regulations and case law pouring out of Tribunals, the Court of Protection and the European Court.
Even if the only question relates to the choice of care home or whether someone can go on holiday, a deep understanding of the law and procedure across the whole spread of mental health and capacity can save a good deal of worry, money and time.
We can see clients in the office, hospitals, care homes, or own homes. In some mental health cases, evening and weekend appointments can be arranged.
