This area of law is particularly complex and affects people at different stages in their lives. Advising a client who has suffered a bereavement or has difficult decisions to make for a loved one diagnosed with dementia requires an understanding of both the client’s needs and the law. It is satisfying to help clients move forward with their lives after experiencing such a difficult time.
