We also have a newly qualified solicitor, Rachael Hawkin, based in Harrogate who will be assisting the team. Rachael spent a year with the team as a trainee so has already assisted on a very broad range of matters. Henrietta Donnelly has also joined the Harrogate office as our new Team Co-ordinator for the north. Henrietta has a legal background and will be progressing new instructions, liaising with Coroner’s, organising bundles and generally keeping everyone on track!

Our experienced and dedicated team, led by mental health expert Stephen Evans,  advise on all aspects of health and social care, mental health, Court of Protection, CQC and more. Acting for clients in every field of health and social care law allows us to integrate our expertise to provide focused solutions, drawing from good practice as well as a comprehensive knowledge of the relevant law.
