Julie Cornes

Partner, Court of Protection & Community Care


Julie joined Simpson Millar in 2010 as a Partner. She has specialised in Community Care and Court of Protection matters for the past ten years.

Julie advises and represents disabled clients and their relatives to enforce their rights under the law, so that they receive the level of health and social care support that they need, in order to live as independently as possible.

She negotiates with local authorities and CCGs on clients’ behalf to find creative solutions to difficult cases often avoiding the need for lengthy and stressful litigation.

Julie has been involved in several cases setting, or re-asserting important principles at the Court of Protection.

Julie has been named as a “leading individual” in the 2018 Legal 500 Court of Protection category. She is described as “tenacious” and is said to “fight every case with care and excellent attention each time.” 


Julie was shortlisted as a finalist in the category of Social Welfare Law, at the Legal Aid Lawyer of the Year awards, 2018.
