EXPERTISE IN LEGAL PROTECTIONS FOR VULNERABLE OLDER ADULTS
Niamh Moran has gained a reputation for her sensitive and caring approach in dealing with clients in a variety of difficult situations and has written in many leading medical publications including a recent feature on advanced healthcare directives.
She has handled cases where there has been considerable fraud and theft from an older person by ‘trusted’ professionals (including other solicitors), care-givers, trusted family members and acquaintances. In recognition of this, she has been recommended not only by existing clients but by experts in this area, such as, leading health and social care professionals.
Through Niamh Moran’s work as a Chairperson on the Mental Health Commission panel of Tribunals, she has an indepth understanding of the types of mental illness and intellectual disabilities.
These can require specific and specialised legal planning to deal with financials into the future in situations where a child can be vulnerable even if that child is an adult and their illness in remission.
Similarly, firm partner Anthony Carmody is a panel member of legal representatives for the Mental Health Commission and has acted for clients in the High Court.
Carmody Moran Solicitors have clients from all over Ireland who benefit from their specialised advices garnered from their wealth of experience and knowledge of this area of law and life.
