Who are Solicitors for the Elderly?

  • Does an elderly family member need specialist legal advice?
  • Where can you be sure that the advice they receive is good advice?
  • Can you be certain that the service they receive is of a high standard in relation to the advice they seek?

There is one organisation which can help to fulfil your expectations and you can be assured that the advice you need is specifically aimed at the families and carers of elderly and vulnerable people.

The organisation is called SOLICITORS FOR THE ELDERLY (SFE).

Which can be found at www.solicitorsfortheelderly.com

SFE is an independent national organisation of solicitors barristers and legal executives who have registered as members of SFE.

All members must fulfil the membership criteria by primarily working with elderly clients in specialist areas such as

  • Wills (including disputed Wills, tax planning & trusts within Wills)
  • Lasting Powers of Attorney
  • Care home fee advice
  • Court of Protection

To name but a few.

To become a professional member of SFE, members are required to complete an exam to show their knowledge and competency in this area as well as following the SFE code of Practice.

At Morrish Solicitors LLP all of our solicitors in the Private Client Department are members of SFE:
