Independent Report Case Studies

With a well established interest in learning disability and mental health advocacy, and voluntary experience as an advocate and past company secretary of an advocacy organisation, Mike has been in demand to provide independent reports for solicitors. Typically these will be in the context of solicitors wishing to ensure that the principles of mental health legislation have been rigorously applied to their clients, and that alternatives to more restrictive recommendations have been considered. This in particular in relation to mental health tribunal or welfare guardianship proceedings.

In addition, MMA has carried out work in relation to a Planning Appeal, where he was required to carry out a social impact survey of a proposed older people's retirement park on local health and social services; a number of contested adoption proceedings; an appeal against removal of Care Commission registration; and, Judicial Review proceedings involving probation and aftercare for a disabled offender.
