We have considerable experience representing clients at court, including inquests, and provide a wide range of advocacy services.
In a legal or law context, an “advocate” is the title of a specific person who is either authorised or appointed in some way to speak on behalf of a person in a legal process.
In all its forms, advocacy seeks to ensure that people, particularly those who are most vulnerable in society, are able to:
- Have their voice heard on issues that are important to them.
- Defend and safeguard their rights.
- Have their views and wishes genuinely considered when decisions are being made about their lives.
