Laura Stansfield, the head of Tameside law firm Bromleys’ Wills, Probate and Planning for the Future department, is blazing a trail after becoming a fully- accredited member of Solicitors for the Elderly.
She is the only Tameside-based member of SFE, which is a national association of independent lawyers who are acknowledged as experts in dealing with the legal issues faced by older clients.
Laura acts for clients across Tameside as well as beyond the borough in areas including Saddleworth, Manchester, Wilmslow, Altrincham and Alderley Edge.
As part of the process to become a fully-accredited member of SFE, Laura passed rigorous assessments and received specialist training in working with older and vulnerable clients and understanding their needs.
Her areas of expertise also include lifetime planning, drafting wills and powers of attorney, inheritance tax planning, succession planning for business owners and arrangements for future care.
Laura said: “The SFE accreditation shows that an independent body recognises that my clients receive the best-possible expert service.
“SFE membership also demonstrates that I have a real breadth of experience, enabling me to advise on unusual situations and circumstances.”
Mark Hirst, senior partner of Bromleys,who is pictured with Laura, said: “Laura’s achievement is excellent news for her, the firm and our clients.
“It sets her apart from her peers and recognises that she has the expertise to deal with any eventuality and put in place the right processes to ensure the well-being of our elderly clients, providing peace of mind to them and their families.”
