Elderly & Vulnerable Clients

We offer a range of services to support elderly and vulnerable clients who may be experiencing cognitive impairment.

At Warners we are committed to providing a wide range of legal services for vulnerable adults and children, their relatives and carers. We are committed to providing expert advice across a wide area of practice that is client-focused as well as practical and sympathetic.

Issues affecting older clients, in particular, can be complex and varied, covering wills, lasting powers of attorney, Court of Protection issues, tax planning, property matters, care home fees and financial planning. We help clients to plan ahead, to place their affairs in order; we also help clients navigate the Court of Protection jurisdiction.

We have legal experts who are ‘Dementia Friends’ and two of our team who are ‘Dementia Friends Champions’ and able to deliver Dementia Friends Awareness Sessions. Many of our solicitors are members of Solicitors for the Elderly as well as the Society of Trust and Estate Practitioners (STEP). With us, you can be assured that the advice you receive from us is the best advice available.

"Excellent caring family solicitor providing sound advice and service"

"As difficult as the task has been (at times) we have never once questioned our decision to move the Estate into your capable hands. You have been professional, caring, extremely knowledgeable, discrete - all the while providing expert guidance as we have traversed the minefield of various tax laws. The service and expertise from everyone at Warners has been excellent. Beyond our expectation (I had high expectations!) Perhaps the biggest compliment I can pay you is that I am actually disappointed that our dealings are near completion. Thank you for all your work it is very much appreciated."

Mr H

"I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for the kind and gentle way you explained and dealt with all this with us as a family. It has made the process much easier, especially for my parents."
