Catherine Donworth awarded ‘gold standard’ accreditation by the Solicitors for the Elderly
Private Client Solicitor, Catherine Donworth has been recognised with a national accreditation for her expertise in legal support for older and vulnerable clients, their families and carers.
The accreditation is awarded by SFE (Solicitors for the Elderly), the organisation setting the standards for the highest quality legal advice in specialist areas, such as wills, powers of attorney and elder abuse.
To achieve accreditation, lawyers are required to undertake assessments to demonstrate a solid understanding of the specific needs and considerations required when safeguarding and protecting older clients’ interests.
Catherine said: “I am delighted to have been accredited as a full member of Solicitors for the Elderly. This demonstrates my expertise in advising on older client law and is considered the highest standard among solicitors. At TMJ, we are proud of our dedication to continuous professional development, which sets us apart as trustworthy Private Client lawyers."
Catherine now joins Director and fully accredited member, Clair Dunkerley, in expanding TMJ's specialist knowledge and expertise.
Lakshmi Turner, Chief Executive of SFE, said: “When it comes to planning ahead for later life, getting the right advice is essential. An SFE accredited lawyer is an expert in this area of the law and understands the wider, often sensitive, issues around health, care and family that may need consideration. SFE lawyers understand the issues affecting older and vulnerable clients and follow a strict code of practice with respect and dignity at its heart.
“Ultimately, choosing an SFE lawyer means you’ll be guided through this complex and sensitive area of law and will enable you to lay solid foundations to protect you and your loved ones in later life.”
