Priscilla is a solicitor in our Public Law and Community Care Department. Priscilla joined Bhatia Best in August 2018 and put her decision down to our strong presence in that area of law. Priscilla qualified as a Solicitor in August 2015 and has a great amount of experience in dealing with a range of Public Law and Community Care matters, mental capacity issues and related litigation.

Priscilla’s areas of specialism include:

 

  • Age Assessments
  • Assessments of children in need under Section 17 Children Act 1989
  • Assessments of needs, unlawful charges for care and fairer access to Care Services under Care Act 2014
  • Complaints procedure and Ombudsman
  • Challenging direct payments and personal budget
  • Judicial Review challenges
  • Looked After Children and leaving care duties under Section 20 Children Act 1989
  • Disabled Facilities Grants/ Aid/Adaptations

 

Priscilla has particular expertise in actions arising from failures of the Local Authority to carry out lawful assessment and failure to provide adequate services pending and after the completion of an assessment. She has frequently pursued challenges in community care assessments, service provision and unlawful charging decisions. Priscilla has acted on many leading cases on a wide range of care service users and their carers across England and Wales. Alongside this, she has also provided advice and assistance on the rules which seek to restrict access to services for migrants.

 

Priscilla has successfully represented clients in a variety of age disputed minors following the Local Authority’s assessment of their age.
