Mental Health, an
issue for everyone

One in four of us will encounter some form of Mental Health problem during our lifetime, either personally or because we know someone who is affected.

Mental health problems are often intrinsically linked with a loss of the mental capacity to make decisions about health, welfare and finances.

Miles & Partners’ dedicated, specialist mental health lawyers in London have extensive experience in helping prepare for the possibility of losing mental capacity by drawing up Lasting Powers of Attorney, as well as in working with people who have already been diagnosed with mental health difficulties.

Our mental capacity team and expert mental health lawyers have “an astonishing reputation in the field of mental health law” and success in challenging unlawful detentions, bringing High Court actions for Judicial Review and all other issues related to mental capacity, mental health and psychiatric issues.

We offer the same high level of care, compassion and sensitivity whether you are seeking advice about your own rights and entitlements or those of someone you care for, and we work closely with other legal departments and professionals to provide a holistic service.

We always consider whether you might be entitled to legal aid, which is most likely in cases at the Court of Protection and Mental Health Tribunal cases.
