Solicitors for the Elderly (SFE) accreditation
Solicitors for the Elderly (SFE) is an independent organisation, made up of solicitors, barristers and legal executives who provide specialist legal advice to elderly and vulnerable people.
Founded in 1999, the SFE was the brainchild of a small group of lawyers who recognised that the UK’s ageing population was leading to an increasing number of enquiries from older clients. Today the organisation has more than a 1000 members nationwide.
At Royds Withy King, Tony Millson, is a full member of the SFE.
To qualify for membership of the SFE, lawyers must have demonstrated their specialist knowledge of a wide range of legal issues affecting elderly people. They also need to have worked with a substantial number of clients in this age group.
