    Thank you for representing me. I am delighted with the outcome. I greatly appreciate the time and effort of going through with me. Please will you pass on my sincere gratitude to your colleague Emma for her dedicated approach to my case as well.

    Client testimonial about Mike Bishop and Emma Silburn- Mental Health

David Gray Solicitors has the largest team of specialist Mental Health solicitors in the North East. We provide advice in relation to all aspects of the Mental Health Act (MHA) 1983, and represent patients before the Mental Health Tribunal and Hospital Managers.

The team consists of six specialist Solicitors who are all accredited by the Law Society to represent patients in this highly specialised area of law. Due to the size of our team we are able to represent patients across the North, from Middlesbrough to Newcastle to Barrow-in-Furness and everywhere in between.

We are able to visit those detained in Hospital under Section 2 of the MHA 1983 within 24 hours of contact, and within 48 hours for those detained under Section 3.

We also represent the Nearest Relatives of those detained under the Act and advise on their rights and responsibilities.
