Private client Solicitor Marjorie Creek, who works at local law firm Kitsons Solicitors in their Plympton office, has been recognised with a prestigious elderly care qualification.
After passing the ‘Older Client Care in Practice’ award, Marjorie undertook further study and passed the ‘Older Client Law in Practice’ award to become a fully accredited member of Solicitors for the Elderly (SFE) and will join Kitsons Partner, Lynn Smith who acquired the SFE award several years ago.
Marjorie is also a registered nurse, so has extensive experience of caring for and working with vulnerable people of all ages and abilities. She is able to take into account any difficulties they may have, whether mental and or physical, to enhance and support their decision making.
She becomes the only Solicitor in Plympton with this qualification and as an SFE accredited lawyer; she can ensure that clients will have the legal documents in place so that their voice is heard and are their wishes carried out exactly as they wanted. Marjorie’s wealth of experience allows her to put you at ease, when resolving legal issues.
Marjorie Creek, Solicitor at Kitsons Solicitors said: “I am very honoured to become a full accredited member of the SFE alongside Lynn Smith. At Kitsons we provide independent, specialist, holistic advice, when dealing with elderly and vulnerable clients – which is a core value of belonging to the SFE organisation”.
Lynn Smith, Partner at Kitsons Solicitors said: “Gaining an SFE award is hugely important to a law firm and we’re so pleased that Marjorie has achieved this award. The needs of the elderly and vulnerable in our society are often overlooked and this ensures the best possible standards are carried out at all times.”
SFE is an independent, national organisation of professionals, such as solicitors, barristers and chartered legal executives, committed to providing the highest quality of legal advice for older and vulnerable people, their families and carers.
