Solicitors for the Elderly Accepts New Member
Helen Forster of Simpson Millar LLP in Leeds has been accepted as a member of the national association 'Solicitors for the Elderly' (SFE)
– highlighted as someone who goes the extra mile
for older people.
SFE is an association of lawyers who specialise in providing legal services for older people and their carers
. Members of SFE have a wealth of experience within this key legal area and they are required to have spent a substantial amount of time working for elderly clients.
Simpson Millar LLP already offers a wide range of services for the elderly
and the SFE membership provides added reassurance of this expertise.
Helen said: “People of all ages deserve high quality legal advice
but, in my view, the elderly in particular should be afforded the very best
in terms of legal support and guidance. We can all find ourselves in the situation of being unable to manage our affairs ourselves, or are having to plan for a day when we are no longer here. It is a sensitive matter and one that needs to be approached with the greatest sensitivity and respect for both the individual and their loved ones.”
Recently Helen also became a member of the Society for Trust and Estate Practitioners
– recognised as an expert and technically skilled practitioner who offers clients an outstanding level of service.
The aim of the SFE is to improve the knowledge and service provided
on legal issues including, tax planning, wills, enduring powers of attorney, long-term social and health care and other retirement issues.
