Our lawyers have particular expertise in dealing with vulnerable individuals who have mental health difficulties and who may be detained in hospital under the Mental Health Act.

We are a young, progressive firm with a fresh approach towards legal practice. We aim for a friendly relationship with all our clients, but we also recognise the need to work to the highest professional standards on their behalf at all times.

We are committed to excellence in our work, and our aim is to make sure that every single client feels that they have had the best possible advice and representation.

We are based in Taunton, though our reputation means that we are instructed to represent clients nationwide.

Katie joined Butler & Co in January 2016. She works as a Paralegal supporting Catrin Blake in our Court of Protection Team.

Katie Graduated from Bristol University in 2013 where her final year research project focused on the changes made by the Mental Health Act 2007 and whether they were compatible with Human Rights with regard to mentally disordered offenders. This utilised Katie's skills in critical analysis of large volumes of written information and independent research.

Katie attends Court of Protection Hearings, sitting behind Counsel and is a valued member of the Court of Protection Team, liaising with clients, courts and professionals in person, over the phone and via email.
