The GN Mental Health Team consists of a number of specialist Law Society Accredited Advocates who are supported by closely supervised Trainee Solicitors and Paralegals.
Many of the cases we help with begin with a challenge against detention under the Mental Health Act but we also seek to address many other legal issues which detained people may encounter.
We pride ourselves in giving a high level of client care combined with a firm and professional approach when representing our clients’ legal needs.
Our standard of service is evidenced by a high level of repeat instruction and we have achieved a Legal Aid Agency Independent Peer Review rating of Excellence (1); this is the highest rating possible and is attributed to firms whose work has been found to demonstrate a very high degree of competence.
We also have an established history of conducting Judicial Review cases in the High Court, Court of Appeal and Supreme Court as well as taking appeals to the Upper Tribunal (Administrative Appeals Chamber).
The vast majority of our clients in this area of law are entitled to free Legal Aid funding from the Legal Aid Agency.
