Solicitors for the Elderly Accreditation for our Lifetime Legal Partner

Sunday, 24 March 2019

We are pleased to announce that our Partner, Jillian Barnes, has become a fully accredited member of Solicitors for the Elderly.  Jillian runs our busy Lifetime Legal department and specialises in wills, estate planning, trusts, powers of attorneys and estate administration.

Jillian is the only accredited member of Solicitors for the Elderly based in Fife. 

Solicitors for the Elderly is a national organisation of trusted legal advisors who provide specialist legal advice for older and vulnerable people, their families and carers. To become a member of Solicitors for the Elderly, Jillian had to pass two separate exams explaining how she would advise people in a wide range of scenarios, as well as demonstrating that she already has substantial experience working with older and more vulnerable clients.

Having undertaken additional specialist training in older client law, Jillian is able to understand the issues affecting older clients and communicate to them in a clear, straightforward manner.  Being a member of Solicitors for the Elderly demonstrates our commitment to elderly clients and gives them peace of mind that they will receive high quality legal advice in their best interests.

Jillian is also a full member of STEP (the Society of Trust & Estate Practitioners).  Full STEP members, known as TEPs, are internationally recognised as experts specialising in family inheritance and succession planning, with proven qualifications and experience.
