Court of Protection Case Manager
Helen first joined Butler and Co as a secretary in June 2011. In 2013, she joined the mental health department as a paralegal providing advice and representing clients detained under the Mental Health Act 1983. Helen is now a Court of Protection Case Manager and has been a valued member of the Court of Protection team since 2017. She manages a comprehensive range of cases where she regularly receives instructions from independent mental capacity advocates, the Official Solicitor and family members on behalf of P. Helen has extensive experience in bringing applications under section 21A of the Mental Capacity Act 2005, in connection with the deprivation of liberty safeguards (DoLS) framework to challenge the arrangements on the basis that they are either not in the individuals best interest, or that the individual may in fact have capacity.
Helen’s work includes attending hearings and professional meetings. She particularly enjoys visiting clients, ensuring that their wishes and feelings are always at the heart of proceedings and considering ways in which their quality of life can be improved as part of the overall process.
Helen prides herself on developing strong relationships with professionals and working in a conciliatory manner to achieve the best outcome for P. She works hard to ensure family members are guided through the proceedings in a sensitive way during what can be a very difficult time.
Helen is working toward qualifying as a Legal Executive and she is hoping to resume her studies this year.
Helen enjoys spending quality time with her family and going on countryside walks. In her spare time, she listens to music, podcasts and audiobooks. She likes to travel and explore new places both in the UK and abroad.
