About Maria Martin
I joined the Community Care group at Invicta Law in 2019 as a Legal Assistant.
I studied Law at the University of Hertfordshire, graduating in 2018, and received my Masters of Law. I am currently studying part- time for my LPC at the University of Law in London.
I hold cases in both asylum and adult social care in a wide variety of areas, including judicial review applications, age assessment challenges, and Court of Protection proceedings relating to DOL, and financial deputyships.
I help provide training to the local authority client in relation to practice, procedure and law around Human Rights Act assessments and age assessments.
Currently, I am building experience of effectively defending pre-action challenges to local authority decisions relating to unaccompanied asylum seeking children, 21a Mental Capacity Act 2005 challenges and conducting legal matters efficiently, advising and instructing counsel in Court of Protection and in the High Court and Upper Tribunal of the Immigration and Asylum chamber.
I am passionate about providing support to the Community Care group and applying my academic learnings in the workplace, while continuing to grow and develop the skills needed to become a Solicitor Advocate.
