Welcome to Peter Edwards Law
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.

To help non professional clients understand their rights, you are welcome to join any of our training courses FREE OF CHARGE. Just click here for details and booking.
Fighting to protect people’s rights is our sole purpose. We specialise in representing those detained under the Mental Health Act and those for whom lack of capacity, is an issue. This includes those who are deprived of their liberty and those who sensibly wish to plan for future incapacity (Lasting Powers of Attorney) and death (wills).
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.
At Peter Edwards Law you will be able to talk a dedicated specialist team who will support you very step of the way.
