Protecting the vulnerable in our community is fundamental to society. Those who struggle to cope with declining mental health require a service to offer help and guidance, particularly when they come into contact with the Law.
McCarrys Solicitors are pleased to be able to offer a service to all those who require advice in this very specialised area of Law.
The firm has built up a reputation of having a particular expertise in this area. The Mental Health Tribunal for Scotland has appointed our Partner, Colin Adam, to be a Curator to those who come before the Mental Health Tribunal and require additional support and protection.
As a firm we are able to advise not only patients, but families and other interested parties in the procedures before the Mental Health Tribunal and also if they need help in the Court process, whether it be criminal or civil proceedings
As Legal Aid is frequently available, this allows for free and independent advice to be given to those who come into contact with the varying aspects of Mental Health Law.
McCarrys can also provide help with the drawing up of Powers of Attorney, where a person wishes to put in place sensible and practical measures to come into force should their physical or mental health decline in future years and, in certain circumstances, when a Guardianship Order becomes necessary, we are able to prepare and present an application to the Court.
We are a firm which can be relied upon to provide reassurance and practical help to those who need assistance in many areas of Law covered by Mental Health Legislation.
