More about Deborah...

Prior to working for Cartwright King Deborah worked in various roles with the police in local, regional and national contexts.

Deborah was highlighted in the UK Legal 500 2018/19 for her regulatory law work as an ‘amazingly efficient’ solicitor and part of a ‘very assured and reliable team.’ For the past three years she has also practiced in education law expanding her knowledge and experience although recently deciding to focus purely on mental health law.

Deborah is dedicated to achieving positive outcomes for her clients, whether that be at the First-Tier Tribunal (Mental Health), in a Hospital Managers’ Meeting or in less official forums. She represents patients both in the community and in hospital who are detained under Parts II and III of the Mental Health Act 1983. She is not afraid to challenge doctors and Responsible Authorities in respect of their decision making and compliance with primary legislation and the Mental Health Act Code of Practice.

Deborah is committed to ensuring those deprived of their liberty are fairly treated and have their rights protected. her clients are often vulnerable and unable to advocate for themselves and she ensures that their detention and treatment is lawful while supporting them to exercise their legal rights.
