Court of Protection
Hannah obtained an International Baccalaureate at the United World College of the Atlantic in 2005, and was awarded a 1st Class honours degree in Politics and Peace Studies in 2008. She volunteered for a local Citizen’s Advice Bureau before making the decision to become a solicitor.
Having completed a Graduate Diploma in Law in 2012, she obtained a distinction in her Legal Practice Course in 2014. During her time studying, Hannah joined Simpson Millar (then Maxwell Gillott) as an administrative assistant in 2010, assisting a team of specialist Court of Protection, Education and Community Care solicitors and support staff.
She was promoted to paralegal in September 2012, during which time she assisted partners Angela Jackman and Julie Cornes on complex Court of Protection cases. She began her training contract in June 2014 and qualified as a solicitor in December 2016.
Since qualifying she has continued to build her practice, with a particular focus on health & welfare disputes in the Court of Protection.
Hannah continues to build on her five years of experience with Simpson Millar, assisting and advising clients on all aspects of mental capacity and social care law, particularly in respect of health and welfare disputes and challenges to Deprivation of Liberty authorisations in the Court of Protection.
She also advises clients in relation to judicial review challenges to local authorities and NHS bodies, often where there are concerns as to capacity. She has also assisted Angela Jackman with complex litigation, most recently before the Supreme Court.
With Hannah’s assistance, numerous clients have obtained less restrictive and more appropriate care and support in the community, in residential placements, and in care homes. She is dedicated to ensuring that her clients obtain the support and care that they are entitled to.
She provides training and guidance to local and national charities and advocacy groups and is happy to be contacted directly with any queries.
