We specialise in working with families and carers of disabled and vulnerable individuals. Our team has built its excellent reputation on understanding the needs of parents and carers – all of whom are dealing with complex, often challenging lives, where it’s vital that they can understand their options. We often involve the disabled or vulnerable person in meetings and discussions if the families or carers feel this is appropriate to do so and can also act on their behalf if required.
For families and carers of disabled and vulnerable individuals it’s especially important to consider how to provide for a relative if you are no longer there to care for them. We help you put in place legal support, to help to protect your family members, using Wills and Trusts tailored specifically to your needs.
We are widely recognised for our empathy, understanding and practical approach towards often sensitive situations. Offering fixed price legal advice and home appointments at a flexible time to suit you and your family, our service also includes access to complimentary professionals who we have identified as specialists in their field, including financial advisors and therapists.
