Donovan Newton Solicitors have been representing clients who are detained under the Mental Health Act 1983 (as amended) since 2003.
Our specialist mental health solicitors can provide expert advice, assistance and representation to patients and their relatives in relation to all aspects of the Mental Health Act 1983 (as amended) (MHA 1983).
We hold a contract with the Legal Aid Agency to provide mental health law advice and representation across the Midlands and East of England. Non means tested legal aid is available for clients who need representation before the Mental Health Tribunal. Dependent upon a means assessment, legal aid may be available for advice and assistance about other mental health matters.
Our solicitors are members of the Law Society’s Mental Health Accreditation Scheme, having been independently assessed as having the required expertise and experience in mental health law.
If you or someone you know would like our help, then please either telephone one of our offices or drop us a message using the contact form and one of our team will get in touch shortly.
