Covering the East Midlands, Lincolnshire, Yorkshire and Humberside, we offer a confidential and personal service advising:
- patients, families or carers about their rights
- patients detained by the Criminal Courts
- patents detained in secure and rehabilitation units
- patients on civil sections (assessment/treatment)
- patients who are prison transfer en-route to discharge
- discharge and the application of S 117 rights
We always take a wider view of our client's personal situation and where other specialist advice is needed, for example family law or crime, we will refer him/her to a law firm we trust and that can advise on these specific areas of the law.
MH Legal is contracted with the Legal Aid Agency.
