Sue Clark in our Court of Protection Team has been recognised with national accreditation for her expertise in legal support for older and vulnerable clients, their families and carers. The accreditation is awarded by SFE (Solicitors for the Elderly), the organisation setting the standards for the highest quality legal advice in specialist areas, such as wills, powers of attorney and elder abuse. To achieve accreditation, lawyers are required to undertake assessment to demonstrate solid understanding of the specific needs and considerations required when safeguarding and protecting older clients’ interests. Sue said: “I take pride in working with our more vulnerable clients and enjoy what I do. I am delighted to have become a Fully Accredited Member of SFE and to have a qualification which demonstrates my understanding of the challenges faced and level of support required by these clients, their families and carers. I look forward to the networking and knowledge-sharing opportunities which being a full SFE member will provide.” Lakshmi Turner, Chief Executive of SFE, said: “When it comes to planning ahead for later life, getting the right advice is essential. An SFE accredited lawyer is an expert in this area of the law and understands the wider, often sensitive, issues around health, care and family that may need consideration. SFE lawyers understand the issues affecting older and vulnerable clients and follow a strict code of practice with respect and dignity at its heart. “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.” To find an SFE accredited lawyer near you, visit their website.
