Dr Lucie  Danti

Dr Lucie Danti

  • Called in 2021


Lucie regularly represents bereaved families at inquests and is happy to take instructions from other interested parties. She has experience covering Article 2 jury inquests and non-Article 2 inquests dealing with medical care and mental health issues.

Selected cases:

CF (2023) Lucie represented the bereaved family at a multi-day Article 2 jury inquest. The deceased had been sectioned under the Mental Health Act at the time of death. In a narrative conclusion, the jury identified four failings on the part of the Trust that contributed to death: inadequate communication within the ward, inadequate communication between the ward and the family, lack of evidence of an overnight care plan or a risk assessment prior to CF’s leave, and failure to follow the section 17 leave of absence policy. The coroner determined that a letter of concern was required in respect of the serious incident report, produced following the deceased’s death, and that three prevention of future death reports were required, addressing the following concerns:

  1. lack of information sharing between private psychiatrists and the different trusts.
  2. failings of record keeping and failure to adhere to policies.
  3. lack of provision of advice to families who have no experience of dealing with patients suffering from mental health difficulties.

ALS (2022) Lucie represented the bereaved family at a multi-day non-Article 2 inquest. The deceased had been under the care of an NHS Trust’s specialist mental health team at the time of death. The Coroner concluded that there had been shortfalls in care, management and treatment and issued a Prevention of Future Deaths Report.

Lucie has volunteered for AvMA and continues to grow and develop her practice in this area, which overlaps with her clinical negligence background and unique insight from her previous career as an NHS doctor.

Following a recent inquest in which Lucie represented the family:

“[The family were] very appreciative of Lucie Danti’s support and the overall outcome. I would endorse this. Lucie was very professional in her approach and had a good grasp of the issues, particularly having only been instructed a few days before the Inquest. I enjoyed working with her. She  established a good rapport with the clients, addressing their concerns and obtained an outcome that more than satisfied their expectations.”

Dino Skinner – Managing Partner, Healys Solicitors.


Dr Lucie Danti recently represented me in court. In preparation for my court appearance she was meticulous in her attention to detail, not only in her thorough examination of all the evidence but in the delivery of that evidence, her cross examination and thoughtful questioning. She most certainly went over and above what I expected in terms of communication before and during the court appearance. She was extremely composed during proceedings and her calm and supportive manner gave me confidence and enabled me to see beyond the stress and anxiety that I was feeling.

I very much appreciate the knowledge and support I received from Lucie Danti and I feel very fortunate to have been represented by her.

Previous Employment

Prior to commencing her legal studies, Lucie worked as a junior doctor for the NHS, which has provided her with a unique insight into patient care and clinical settings. The role involved working within ward based clinical teams in a variety of medical specialties, coordinating inpatient care between departments and taking instruction from/liaising with, medical and nursing colleagues.
