Elderly client

Solicitors for the Elderly (SFE) is a national association of lawyers concerned with improving the availability and delivery of specialist legal advice to older and vulnerable people, and their families.

A member of both SFE and the Society of Estate and Trust Practitioners (STEP), Toni Peppard is experienced in dealing with any mental and/or physical difficulties that accompany the ageing process.  As a result, she has an unusual awareness of the distinctions between certain mental and physical disabilities, and of the social and health problems that may arise with age.  This experience should inspire confidence when resolving your legal issues.

Lasting Powers of Attorney have rendered Living Wills less common.  “Living Will” is not a legal term but includes Advance Decisions and Advance Statements.  Advance Decisions deal with the refusal of certain potential medical treatments.  Advance Statements deal with one’s treatment in the event of lost capacity.  Only Advance Decisions are legally binding.  We have considerable experience of dealing with these sensitive matters on behalf of clients.

SFE membership requires not only a substantial amount of time working for elderly and vulnerable clients, but also meeting SFE’s high criteria and strict compliance with its code of conduct.  For more information, please see the SFE website or call 0870 0670282.

If you would like to find out more about getting advice for the elderly from us, please email Toni Peppard.
