We appreciate that getting older can raise issues that cause concern both for elderly people and their families. We are able to offer legal advice based on years of experience and specifically tailored to help you achieve peace of mind in your later years. We can help clients to plan for their future, with particular focus on issues that may arise from:
- Physical disability or mental incapacity
- Lasting powers of attorney
- Registration of enduring powers of attorney
- Court of Protection applications and advance decisions
- Living Wills and advance directives
- Statutory will applications
We regularly act for clients as their appointed attorney if they have no family to appoint or would rather a professional acted for them. We regularly deal with Adult Social Services and are frequently asked to act as Court Deputy for individuals whom are unable to manage their own affairs.
How much does it cost?
The cost varies depending on what is involved and the work required. All clients have an initial meeting to discuss the work they might require and the likely costs involved. We will confirm a best estimate of the likely costs in writing and where possible try to agree a fixed fee for the work to be undertaken.
