Emily Patterson

Associate Solicitor

Mental Health

Emily has more than 14 years of experience as a mental health lawyer. She qualified as a Solicitor back in January 2010 with a dual specialism in mental health law and criminal law.

Since 2017 Emily has focused on mental health case-work. However, she still regularly draws on her criminal defence background when dealing with forensic mental health clients.

Emily's specialisms

More about Emily

Emily was immediately attracted to Mental Health law on joining the firm as a trainee solicitor back in 2008 due to the varied and integral nature of the work with an individual’s liberty and freedoms being at stake in each and every case.

Her area of specialism is representing patients, whether under the care of mental health services via the criminal justice system or not, at First-tier Tribunal Hearings and other important meetings concerning their detention or compulsion under the Mental Health Act. She has a wealth of experience dealing with all different sections of the Act.

Emily has vast experience of acting for clients either as their instructed solicitor or being appointed to act where patients lack the capacity to instruct a lawyer but it is deemed in their best interests by the court that they are represented.

She is highly regarded for providing excellent client care ensuring clients are kept up to date on all key developments and advised on the merits of their case accordingly.

Emily will always fight hard for the best result for her clients, who she represents across the West Midlands and Worcestershire.
