A bit more about Paul Williams
I have always had an interest in all areas of law before I decided to pursue a career in Mental Health and Human Rights Law. I obtained an LLB (Hons) from Liverpool John Moores University in 2008 before going on and completing my LPC in 2009. I am a member of the Law Society Mental Health Tribunal Panel.
I have had 2 years’ experience in a personal injury firm of solicitors were I undertook numerous tasks ranging from advocacy in ex parte applications to assisting Barristers in Court cases. I joined Peter Edwards Law in 2012 after I deciding that my main ambition was to become a solicitor in mental health, capacity and community care work. I qualified as a solicitor in 2015.
I lead my own team where we handle complex cases in the Court of Protection and other issues in respect of the Mental Capacity Act 2005. I represent client’s before the Court of Protection in deprivation of liberty appeals and welfare matters. I also represent client’s before the Mental Health Tribunal and I am an accredited panel member of the Tribunal.

Away from the office...
My main hobbies include sport such as football and I am a dedicated supported of Liverpool Football Club.Back to previous page
