Lasting Power of Attorney for Health and Welfare

You may encounter situations when planning and dealing with your personal welfare and health matters will be difficult if you are unable to make decisions due to lack  of mental capacity. People of any age can lose their mental capacity -temporarily or permanently- because of an accident or illness for instance, and by making a Lasting Power of Attorney you ensure that the person you choose (your attorney) will be helping you if and when required. Having appointed an attorney under a Lasting Power of Attorney will also prevent potential family disputes as to whom should deal with your health affairs and what decisions shall be made if you lack mental capacity.

I am Marcela Pierabella and I was born in Argentina, where I attended secondary school in the village of Los Quirquinchos, in the Santa Fe province. I qualified as a Laywer  in 1997,  obtaining my law degree at the National University of Rosario. After a brief period of practising as a lawyer in Argentina, I moved to Europe to study a Master in Law in Huelva, Spain. I subsequently studied  contemporary law in Brazil before  settling in London in 1999, where for over 10 years I worked in welfare and housing law in several organisations including Terrence Higgins Trust and St Hilda’s Community Centre.
