Mental Capacity Law

With an ever growing aging population Elder Law issues are becoming far more common place and problematic for both the individual and their families and friends.

Our private client solicitors at Seddons regularly advise elderly clients and their attorneys and/or deputies on issues surrounding old age. We are particularly careful to make sure that the best interests of the client are paramount when giving advice and that the attorneys and deputies are well aware of their duties.

We also advise on Mental Capacity issues and provide sensible and practical advice during what is often a very difficult and confusing time in people’s lives.

Our experience in Elder Law means that we are aware that, alongside advising on the legal issues, it is equally important to offer personal support to our clients and help find stress free and workable solutions whenever possible.
