Sarah Jackson

Sarah joined Cygnet Law in 2014, became a director in 2019, and specialises in Mental Health, Court of Protection and Community Care Law. She has brought extensive knowledge to these
departments and regularly represents vulnerable people and their families. She’s acted in numerous matters relating to deprivation of liberty, residence, care, contact and sexual relations and complex cases. Her expertise within this was solidified as she became one of the first practitioners to be admitted to the Law Society’s Mental Capacity panel, which recognises her knowledge and proficiency in these areas.

Sarah is accredited to the Law Society's Mental Health Panel, allowing her to represent patients detained under the Mental Health Act 1983 either via hospital or in the community. She assists patients in both circumstances and provides advice to individuals in all aspects of this law. Her knowledge of this specialism is second to none, with her passion to help her clients shining
through in all aspects of her work.

Additionally, Sarah is also instructed by Public Bodies like Local Authorities within our region and outside of it, helping to represent them in cases relating to this area of law. She’s a credit to
Cygnet Law as she also designs and delivers bespoke external training courses.
