Really proud to have been awarded accreditation as a Solicitor for the Elderly, specialising in support and advice for older and vulnerable people, their families and their carers.  It’s always been my goal to specialise in this area, and below are 10 good reasons why you should make sure your lawyer is SFE accredited.  

The decisions and plans you make now will have a huge impact on your later life. Getting them right is essential. An SFE accredited lawyer is an expert in older client law and will ensure you get the best possible legal advice for your future.

SFE members:

  1. Know their stuff
    Our members are qualified solicitors, barristers and legal executives who specialise in advising older and vulnerable people and their families and carers.
  2. Have years of experience 
    SFE lawyers have substantial experience built up over many years of focussing on this area of law.
  3. Are independently accredited
    SFE lawyers have all undertaken additional specialist training in older client law to qualify for the Older Client Care in Practice Award, which is independently accredited.
  4. Follow a strict code of conduct
    SFE lawyers understand the issues affecting older and vulnerable clients and follow a strict code of practice that has respect and dignity at its heart.
  5. Speak in a language you understand
    There is so much jargon in the legal profession. SFE lawyers communicate in clear straightforward language to make sure you understand everything you’re signing.
  6. Are part of a community of experts
    SFE lawyers have a community of more than 1,500 members to draw on, so no matter how complex or sensitive your case, you will receive the best possible legal advice.
  7. Safeguard your interests
    An SFE lawyer is committed to providing affordable, high quality legal advice, and will ensure any decisions are your own.
  8. Understand the bigger picture 
    SFE lawyers understand the wider, and often sensitive, issues around health, care and family that might affect your plans for later life.
  9. Offer the best possible care and support 
    SFE lawyers care. They go above and beyond to provide support that is tailored to your needs and individual circumstances.
  10. Get you the best possible outcome 
    Ultimately, choosing an SFE lawyer means you’ll be guided through this complex and sensitive area of law and will enable you to lay solid foundations to protect you and your loved ones in later life.
