Solicitors for the Elderly: Specialist legal advice and guidance for the elderly, their families and


Family talking to solicitors

We are proud to be part of Solicitors for the Elderly (SFE), with our Chartered Legal Executive, Nicola Willis, being recognised for providing high-quality, specialist legal advice and guidance for older and vulnerable people, their families and carers.

The SFE is an organisation made up of over 1,400 lawyers, solicitors, barristers and chartered legal executives. Each member is dedicated to providing empathy and expertise to assist individuals and families with elderly relatives facing later life, illness, disability and the prospect of nursing care.

Our Legal Executive, Nicola Willis (who has 10 years as an SFE accredited individual), has vast experience in dealing with the elderly and ensuring their best interests are protected. We are continuously recommended to elderly clients, primarily for our well-known, sensitive, considerate and personalised approach to their matters.

87% of people in the UK wish for loved ones to manage their decisions should they fall ill down the line. However, in order to enable them to do this, an LPA must be created – which only 7% have actually done. By deciding to use an SFE accredited expert, you can ensure that your assets in later life are protected, secure and go to who you wish.

Whilst many firms offer services to the elderly, an SFE accredited individual has spent a substantial amount of time with these clients, in turn, building up relationships and ultimately, making a difference to their lives.

We focus on the present and future of our older clients, making sure that the decisions and choices they make today give them the best possible outcome for the future.

By choosing a firm that has an individual accredited by the SFE, you can ensure that you are:

  • Receiving professional advice.

  • Working with an expert who has many years’ experience in this specific area.

  • Communicated to straight-forward and clearly.

  • Receiving the best possible outcome, care and support.

Our services for the elderly include:

  • Wills

  • Trusts

  • Lasting Powers of Attorney

  • Deputyships
