Solicitors for the elderly and vulnerable

SPECIALIST LEGAL ADVICE for supporting elderly & vulnerable people & their families
  • Specialist support from experienced people

    Our solicitors are experienced in providing specialist support for people who are elderly and vulnerable, along with their professional carers and families. We are well-versed in dealing with capacity issues that tend to affect vulnerable people and those later in life.

    We can help you with legal issues including living wills, care advice, Court of Protection applications, deputyship and lasting powers of attorney.

  • Clarity to help you or a loved one make complex decisions

    You may be faced with decisions such as choosing a care home and working out how care will be funded. You may be concerned about how your own or your loved one’s medical treatment and financial affairs will be managed, for example through lasting powers of attorney (LPAs).

  • Our experience puts you at ease

    We are committed to the care of elderly and vulnerable clients. We count amongst our team lawyers who are members of the prestigious Society of Trust and Estate Practitioners (STEP) and recommended in independent, national legal guides Chambers UK and The Legal 500.

  • Sensitive, helpful advice on the Court of Protection and deputyship

    If you have a family member or friend who has lost mental capacity and needs help with their affairs but is unable to make a power of attorney, we can provide specialist advice on applications to the Court of Protection.

    Alternatively, you may already be appointed as an attorney or deputy or may need help with becoming a deputy. We can explain your options clearly and helpfully, guiding you through the deputyship application process if necessary.
