Minnaar Badenhorst awarded a national Solicitors for the Elderly (SFE) Accreditation
Minnaar Badenhorst of Herrington Carmichael Solicitors in Camberley, Wokingham and London has been recognised with a national accredited award for expertise in supporting older and vulnerable people.
Minnaar Badenhorst has received the Older Client Care in Practice (OCCP) Award, which distinguishes lawyers who provide specialist legal care and support to older and vulnerable clients, their families and carers.
It also grants full accredited membership to SFE (Solicitors for the Elderly), an independent, national organisation of professionals, such as solicitors, barristers, and chartered legal executives, committed to providing the highest quality legal advice on specialist areas, such as wills, powers of attorney and elder abuse.
To achieve the award, all applicants are required to undertake an assessment, to demonstrate good understanding of the specific needs and considerations required when safeguarding and protecting older clients’ interests.
Minnaar Badenhorst said:
“I am delighted to now be able to say I am Solicitors for the Elderly (SFE) accredited. Advising, understanding and being able to help with legal advice for elder clients and acting in their best interests is an honour and a privilege”
Lakshmi Turner, Chief Executive of SFE, said:
“We recommend people always use specialist legal advice when planning for later life, and SFE is the gold standard for solicitors and chartered legal executives advising on older client law.”
“The OCCP Award ensures lawyers provide the best advice to older people and their families, guiding them through the different legal processes sensitively.”
