Lizzie deals with welfare cases concerning vulnerable adults in the Court of Protection on instructions from the Official Solicitor as well as concerned family members and advocates. The issues in these cases include deprivation of liberty (for example in care homes, hospitals and at home), residence, contact with other individuals and care packages. Human rights issues often arise in these areas.
Lizzie also deals with Community Care cases which involve challenging local authorities on their failure to provide adequate support and packages of care to vulnerable adults and children in the community.
Prior to qualifying as a solicitor Lizzie spent time training in the Child Care and Crime departments, as well as the Court of Protection team.
She has been a Police Station Accredited Representative since 2015.
