Expertise and experience

Approach and ethos

If a child can’t learn the way we teach, maybe we should teach the way they learn – Ignacio Estrada

I believe this ethos applies to all lawyers working in the Court of protection as our communication with vulnerable clients should always be flexible and adapted to suit their individual needs to ensure their voices are heard.
