Harrogate solicitor Helen Dawson has completed her training to become a specialist adviser to older people and their carers.
Ms Dawson’s qualification brings the number of specially accredited Solicitors for the Elderly at Berwins to four.
Julie Jewers, head of the Life team at Berwins, said:
We are extremely proud of our expertise in advising elderly clients and their families and we’re delighted that Helen has become the fourth member of the team to gain this valuable qualification.
Our clients benefit enormously from the specialist knowledge and sensitive approach of our accredited Solicitors for the Elderly who can advise them on a wide range of issues including tax planning, wills, powers of attorney, long-term social and health care concerns and other retirement issues.
Our work also involves supporting family members who may be managing the affairs of a relative with a condition such as dementia.
The expertise of our solicitors can be invaluable when important legal decisions need to be made on behalf of, or in conjunction with, a loved one.
