Linda Dack, Head of Private Client Services (Wills & Probate and Later Life) at Watkins & Gunn has become an accredited member of the Solicitors for the Elderly (SFE).
SFE is an association of lawyers who specialise in 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.
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.
Our members are qualified solicitors, barristers and legal executives who specialise in advising older and vulnerable people and their families and carers.
SFE lawyers have substantial experience built up over many years of focussing on this area of law.
SFE lawyers have all undertaken additional specialist training in older client law to qualify for the Older Client Care in Practice Award that is independently accredited.
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.
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. We pride ourselves in binning the jargon and being clear on legal advice and costs so this comes naturally to our lawyers anyway! #ProblemSolved
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.
An SFE lawyer is committed to providing affordable, high quality legal advice, and will ensure any decisions are your own.
SFE lawyers understand the wider, and often sensitive, issues around health, care and family that might affect your plans for later life.
SFE lawyers care. They go above and beyond to provide support that is tailored to your needs and individual circumstances.
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.
