Samantha 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 careers.
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.
Samantha Kennedy said:
“I am delighted and proud to be recognised by Solicitors for the Elderly as it is an area that I have specialised in for most of my career. The qualification demonstrates my specialist client care skills that enable me to advise and support older and vulnerable clients. I am honored to be a member of an organisation dedicated to making a difference and going beyond simply providing legal advice”.
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.”
