Mental health affects every area of the law. Every day, it affects everything that we all do. You never know what issues someone woke up with. In our work, we try to be kind to everyone no matter where we are in our day.
Here in Gaston County, I have been personally involved with handling involuntary commitments for our county. I have been the only attorney appointed to handle these matters since 2014. As a result, among the court and my peers, I’ve become a respected voice on issues concerning mental health. I became passionate about mental health when I realized I had missed an opportunity to assist a friend in need when I was younger. At the time, I was too naïve to understand that they were sick. My involvement in mental health is a tribute to them because they’re no longer with us today.
Our firm will design a comprehensive legal plan that lays out goals and explicit timelines to assist our clients in regaining control over their lives. Our focus is first to get them physically healthy. Once they have regained a foothold there, we can work on mending broken relationships. Finally, we want to get an order from the court that recognizes the strides made to make deep behavioral changes.
