Partner Caroline Casagranda, in our leading Wills, Probate, Tax & Trusts team, looks at the reasons to choose a lawyer who is a member of Solicitors for the Elderly (SFE).
When planning for later life, or supporting loved ones who are elderly or vulnerable, it is important to talk to a solicitor (also known as a lawyer) who specialises in this area of law and is experienced in advising you on making important decisions that can sometimes seem difficult or daunting.
You may also want to choose a solicitor who is accredited by Solicitors for the Elderly (SFE), established in 1996 as a group of specialist trained solicitors who support and make a difference to older and vulnerable people.
