Court of Protection Solicitor
Aimee is a Solicitor specialising in Court of Protection disputed welfare decisions and is based in our Lancaster office. She joined Simpson Millar in July 2015 as a Paralegal in our Education Law team before successfully completing her training contract with us and qualified as a Solicitor in May 2019.
Aimee spent time in our Education Law team and has experience in all areas of Education Law and the statutory duties owed to young people with Special Educational Needs.
Many of Aimee’s cases involve challenges against Deprivations of Liberty (DoLS) and she is regularly instructed by advocacy services across the Country as well as by family members and the Official Solicitor.
This is a complex area of law and Aimee also regularly provides advice and represents parties in cases concerning disputed decisions about care arrangements, contact, consent to sexual relations and travelling abroad.
Interests outside of work
