Jane is an experienced solicitor who has practiced in Reading over the last thirty years. She has specialised for the last seventeen years in mental health work, after a period teaching law to trainee social workers and nurses at Reading and South Bank universities and at Bracknell College.
Jane conducts cases in the Court of Protection, including the High Court, when individuals are said to lack mental capacity. She acts for the individual, for relatives or as an agent for the Official Solicitor who will frequently represent the patient. This may be to challenge a decision made by a public body or because of a family disagreement about the best interests of the vulnerable person.
Jane is a long-standing trustee of the Berkshire Carers’ Service.
