Power of Attorney & Guardianship

Appointing a Power of Attorney allows you to ensure that someone you trust is able to act on your behalf in the event you are unable to manage your own affairs. We believe that everyone should have a power of attorney as you simply do not know if or when it may be required. Understandably, this is not always possible and therefore there may be occasion where it is necessary to apply for a Guardianship Order. We can take you through the process and discuss the most appropriate options available to you.



We undertake both legal aid and privately funded work.
