Hugh Jones Solicitors is the largest firm of independent Court of Protection solicitors in the country. Founded by Hugh Jones, a nationally recognised leader in the field with over 30 years’ experience we support vulnerable people, particularly those with a mental incapacity, their families and their advisers. We also advise Local Authorities and other firms of solicitors.
At Hugh Jones Solicitors, we offer expert specialist services from our accessible offices in Salford, just over the River Irwell from Manchester city centre.
We specialise in providing deputyships, lasting powers of attorney, wills, trusts and administration of estates to families throughout the UK through our Court of Protection and Private Client teams.
Many of our clients do not have the capacity to look after their own affairs; we help them and their families with their welfare, property and financial matters - either acting as Deputy or advising a family member.
We specialise in advising Local Authorities with regard to the funding of care, deprivation of liberty safeguards and other issues. We already work with a number of Local Authorities, who refer to us clients who lack capacity, for example those living with dementia. Where clients are moving into full time care and where there are no or no suitable family members, we apply to be appointed Professional Deputy and manage the client's property and affairs, paying off debts including care fees, visiting the client regularly to make sure that they are being cared for in a setting which is in their best interests.
