Why do we do what we do?

Peter Edwards Law is here to help protect the rights of vulnerable people. Thousands of people suffer from mental health issues or lack capacity and do not get access to the support they need. Yet access to these services can be truly life changing.

Vulnerable people can suffer because they do not understand their legal rights. This can add to the stress, confusion and frustration felt.

Fighting to protect people’s rights is our sole purpose. Whether you are suffering from a mental health issue or have a family member who is incapacitated you are entitled to be treated fairly, with dignity and respect … like anybody else.

Peter Edwards Law has a leading team of lawyers at various locations around England & North Wales who will listen to your side of the story and provide fair, friendly and, above all, expert advice.

It is your human right to have access to the right care and resources. At Peter Edwards Law you will be able to talk a dedicated team who will support you every step of the way.
