About Kerry Short
I lead the Community Care team, looking after areas such as mental health, mental capacity, adult safeguarding, inquests, ordinary residence, community care.
I have worked in this area for over 10 years and understand that one of the greatest concerns for clients is dealing with solicitors and the courts. My approach is to combine my own experience as a solicitor with my understanding of the area and the need to advise in plain English and think around each problem to consider potential issues, both legal and non-legal in order to best support each client.
I particularly enjoy the fact that no day at Invicta Law is the same and each day can present a new challenge to solve.
