The COVID19 crisis has raised concerns and caused family discussions about Wills and Lasting Powers of Attorney. Our advert run on Pride Radio gives you the information you need to get in touch. Listen to it and share with your family and friends.

We understand that making plans for your later years, or for an elderly parent, is a sensitive and emotional process. There is the uncertainty of not knowing whether you will need some form of funded care in the future and, if so, to what extent. And, of course, you'll need to know the financial implications.

As a member of Solicitors for the Elderly (SFE), we at Emmersons Solicitors provide specialist legal advice for older and vulnerable people, their families and carers.

To become a member of SFE a lawyer must have spent a substantial amount of their time working for older and vulnerable clients. They must also pass the SFE examination and have to fulfill the SFE criteria for membership. Solicitors For The Elderly members have experience of, and specialize in a wide range of legal issues particularly affecting older people. Their specialist knowledge enables them to empathise with and to take account of the difficulties and disabilities, including mental incapacity, which can accompany the aging process. As such, they are more aware of the social and health problems, which can arise as people age.

"I would like to place on record my considerable satisfaction with the way Ms Laura Dobson has dealt with the matter of my late brothers estate. I am 72 years of age and have no previous experience dealing with this kind of thing. I found Ms Dobson excellent in explaining the various stages of the actions involved and how these fitted into the overall picture. Throughout I felt confident that I could rely on her to deal with everything as needed and to keep me in touch with how things were going. I found Ms Dobson a friendly and easy person to deal with, which is more than mere courteousness, and much valued at a difficult time in my life."
