She regularly works with individuals who are under the Court of Protection, both in terms of making Court applications and day-to-day management. Emma also has experience with Wills and Lasting Powers of Attorney.

Emma appreciates that clients in these situations are often dealing with particularly difficult and upsetting decisions. To help, Emma looks to build relationships established on trust and a broad understanding of what is important. By doing this she can help to achieve the best result for them and maintain their long-term security.
