Mental Health Law

Having a family member become infirmed is a very personal and emotional experience. However, even our loved ones who suffer from mental incapacitation have legal rights. The term competence signifies a legal conclusion that an individual is capable of entering into a binding contract, transferring assets, or participating in a legal proceeding with a sound mind.

The 14thAmendment of the United States Constitution provides that all persons regardless of their mental state have the right to due process and are provided equal protection under the law, as those individuals who are fully and mentally competent.
