Calgary Mental Capacity Issues Lawyers

Empathetic & Insightful Legal Counsel

Any one of us may, at some point in our lives, experience depression or some form of mental illness. There are also many people who suffer from depression or mental illness as a lifelong condition but when properly medicated, can lead otherwise normal lives. We are here to provide compassionate, competent assistance, whether in coordinating capacity assessments, Community Treatment Order (CTO) hearings, or Mental Health Reviews.

Some of the matters our Capacity Issues department has handled in the past includes:

  • Mental Health Reviews
  • Capacity Assessments Coordination

What Is Legal Capacity?

Legal capacity concerns a person’s ability to understand the nature and consequences of entering into a legally binding contract or arrangement that substantially impacts their rights, obligations, and entitlements under the law. A person can lack legal capacity for the short term or an indefinite period of time. A person who lacks legal compacity cannot make legal decisions for themselves.

Situations in which a person can lose capacity include:

  • Alzheimer's
  • Being unconscious or in a coma
  • Dementia
  • Intoxication
  • Catastrophic brain damage

Guardian Law Group LLP is here to assist with your mental capacity case today. Call our firm at (403) 800-7768 or contact us online to schedule your case consultation.
