Challenging Incapacity and Involuntary Admissions

The professionals at PooranLaw have specialized knowledge and experience in the area of incapacity, involuntary admissions and treatment orders. We provide representation before the Consent and Capacity Board (CCB) on behalf of people who have been detained in psychiatric facilities and treated with medications against their will. We also act for people found incapable of making decisions about their property or personal care.

Most applications to the CCB involve a review of a person’s capacity to refuse or consent to treatment or involuntary admission to a psychiatric facility. Once an application is made to the CCB, a hearing is scheduled within seven days. Family members and substitute decision makers may be involved in these cases, however the CCB cannot advise health care providers, patients or families. That’s why it’s critical to obtain advice from the experienced advocates at PooranLaw.
