Melek Tezcan

Court of Protection Solicitor

Melek is part of the Court of Protection team. She is experienced with working with a range of clients, and she aims to protect her clients’ best interests.

Melek has been developing her legal career since she completed her LLB in 2012. She worked in mental health law and volunteered with the Citizens Advice Bureau to support the local community. After completing her LPC, she was largely involved with defendant work dealing with a range of civil litigation matters including personal injury, insurance law, commercial litigation, RTAs and sports related injuries.

From the very first phone conversation through to the last, and in all our meetings, Mel has been an absolute pleasure to deal with, reassuring me at every stage of the process with her professionalism, re-balancing my anxiety about some difficult matters by bringing perspective, focus and clarity that was most appropriate at specific times during the process. At times when we needed to act quickly and efficiently, Mel was amazing and clearly understood the level of my ability to move swiftly with her, so that expectations of each other’s abilities were fully supported and efficiently actionable.
