Solicitors for the Elderly

Whatever you decide about your future, it's important to involve a specialist solicitor who will give you impartial advice and act in your best interest. We are members of Solicitors for the Elderly and can help you.

Our care and legal system is complex and confusing so timely advice is vital to avoid later complications.

Solicitors for the Elderly (SFE) is a national organisation of lawyers, such as solicitors, barristers and legal executives, committed to providing and promoting high-quality legal services for older people, their family and carers. Sharon Richardson and Belinda-Jane Poulter based at our York office are members of SFE and Bethany Worthy based at our Pickering office (covering Ryedale) is also a SFE Associate Member. Members of SFE have a wealth of experience within this key legal area and they are required to have spent a substantial amount of time working for elderly clients so you can be confident about the service you receive.

Advice may be about selling your home, making a Will or gifts or estate planning. Members can also offer guidance on immediate care insurance plans, funding long term care as well as contracts for care homes.

Other advice you can obtain from a member of SFE may include:

Please contact Sharon Richardson, Belinda-Jane Poulter or Bethany Worthy, all members of SFE, in our Private Client team for advice.
