Specialists in Mental Capacity and Mental Health Law

Welcome to Atkins & Palmer

Atkins & Palmer provides specialist legal advice for Court of Protection cases and in mental capacity law. Our team are also experts in mental health law. 

We are a niche firm and we can provide a tailored and personalised service. You will have the same small team from start to finish who will know every detail of your case. Our office is in London and we can also work in other parts of England, and Wales. We work under the legal aid scheme or at affordable private fees.

From the very start of your case we will listen and be approachable. Our team will deliver expert advice and we will always act with integrity. We will be tenacious and resilient in pursuit of your aims. We may be small, but we are capable of achieving great things for you. 


Atkins & Palmer holds a legal aid contract and we can provide services under the legal aid scheme. We have to carry out an assessment of whether you qualify for legal aid. Our team has to look at the merits of your case. Additionally we sometimes have to assess your financial means. To see whether you may be eligible for legal aid you can check the Legal Aid Agency’s Civil Eligibility Calculator.

If you are not eligible for legal aid we can provide services at affordable fixed fees or hourly rates. Whether it is a fixed fee or an hourly rate fee depends on the complexity of the case. We provide an initial free telephone call to discuss more about our services and fees.


We are based near Caledonian Road underground station in north London.  We can see clients in London and our team can also travel to other parts of England.
