Operating throughout the Northwest of England,  our dedicated team specialises in navigating the complexities of mental health and Court of Protection cases. Whether you're an individual, a family member, charity or professional who is seeking advice or representation for cases under the Mental Health Act or Mental Capacity Act, we are here to support you through every step of the process.

Our team boasts extensive experience, with members accredited by both the Law Society's Mental Health Accreditation Scheme and the Law Society's Mental Capacity Scheme. These accreditations are awarded to those who are able to demonstrate specialised knowledge, training and experience so you can rest assured that you will receive the highest quality advice and representation tailored to your unique circumstances.

At Hogan's, we understand the importance of continuity and personalised service. From the initial consultation to the resolution of your case, you'll work with the same dedicated team who will be intimately familiar with every aspect of your situation.

What is the Court of Protection?

The Court of Protection steps in to make decisions for individuals who lack the capacity to do so themselves, whether temporarily or permanently. This can include decisions related to finances, property, health, and welfare including deprivation of liberty decisions. Our team is well-versed in navigating the intricacies of this legal framework, providing guidance and representation to ensure that decisions are made in the best interests of those involved.

Understanding mental capacity is crucial. We recognise that capacity can vary depending on the circumstances, and our team is equipped to assist in assessing and addressing capacity-related issues, including those arising from conditions such as dementia, stroke, or mental health disorders.

At Hogans, we handle a wide range of cases, including Best Interest Decisions, Deprivation of Liberty, and Financial Deputyship matters, among others. Whatever your situation may be, we're here to provide expert guidance and support every step of the way.
