What we can do for you
Deprivation of liberty appeals
If you have been deprived of your liberty or are concerned about a relative or loved one, we can help.
Court of Protection Disputes
Our experience enables parties bringing disputes before the Court to present them reasonably and effectively – we will also try to assist in settlement without the need for a hearing if at all possible.
Acting As Deputy
We work within the framework of the Mental Capacity Act, to ensure that Clients who lack capacity are empowered to make as many decisions for themselves as possible and that any decision made on their behalf is in their best interests.
Mediation is an activity in which a neutral third party, the mediator, assists two or more parties in order to help them achieve an agreement, on a matter in which they are in dispute. At Human Law Mediation we offer fixed fee solutions based on an initial free assessment of your case.
