Lifetime Lawyers are experts in delivering the best outcomes for clients of all ages who are facing important life decisions, including those with complex needs and who may need extra support. In addition to expert legal knowledge, our members undertake a rigorous external accreditation proving their understanding of the key issues that can affect vulnerable and older people.

Lifetime Lawyers also receive specialist training when it comes to the care they provide. They offer extra empathy and attention, including understanding the signs of neglect and abuse and knowing how to spot them. Lifetime Lawyers consider things like when and where they speak to clients, ensuring they’re able to provide people the tailored support they need that aligns with their individual circumstances.
