The issues faced by older clients are becoming increasingly complex and it is difficult for even the most organised to anticipate every eventuality.  Proudly accredited by Solicitors for the Elderly, Peacock & Co realise how important it is to seek an advisor who specialises in the kinds of problems that older clients face.

What is Solicitors for the Elderly?

Solicitors for the Elderly (SFE) is a national organisation for fully-qualified and regulated legal professionals who have specialist expertise in the issues faced by older people and their loved ones.

All members have a minimum of three years experience in advising older and vulnerable clients and this competence has been demonstrated via two exams.

Joining SFE is voluntary so you can be sure that members are dedicated to providing advice to elderly and vulnerable clients.

What do SFE Lawyers advise on?

SFE members are able to advise on the preparation of wills and lasting powers of attorney, court of protection matters, care home funding, tax planning and probate.

These areas are complex and can be difficult to talk about but SFE lawyers have an in depth knowledge that makes the process easier.

Why choose a member of SFE?

SFE lawyers not only have specialist legal knowledge, they understand that clients at this stage of their lives may need a different level of client care.  Every effort is made to put them at their ease and to provide solutions to complex problems that are clear, appropriate, independent and, most importantly, in their best interests.

How do I know whether my lawyer is a member of SFE?

SFE only permits its logo to be used by individuals who are members of the organization.  Members can be identified as elder law specialists by the logo and if you are in any doubt then ask to see confirmation or check the SFE website.

Peacock & Co have two fully accredited members of SFE within the Private Client team so you are in good hands.
