Solicitors for the Elderly (SFE)
Solicitors for the Elderly (SFE) is an independent, national organisation of lawyers, such as solicitors, barristers, and legal executives who provide specialist legal advice for older and vulnerable people, their families and carers.
SFE members have experience and specialise in a wide range of legal issues affecting older and vulnerable people. At the same time they will take into account any difficulties, whether mental and or physical to enhance decision making. Members will provide home visits where necessary.
They will provide independent advice, which is in the older or vulnerable client’s best interests, respecting dignity and will understand the need for a holistic approach to problem solving. All advice is confidential.
Not just any lawyer can be a member of SFE. Our members must have spent a substantial amount of their time working for older and vulnerable clients and have to fulfil our own criteria for membership. They must also follow our own code of practice. This wealth of experience will hopefully put you at ease when resolving your legal issues.
