Two solicitors from Russell & Russell Solicitors have been awarded a quality mark for their work with elderly clients.

Victoria Marshand Harry Mistry of the wills and probate department have qualified as members of Solicitors for the Elderly, an independent organisation of legal advisers who provide specialist legal advice for older and vulnerable people, their families and carers.

The practice is also a member of Dementia Friends, an Alzheimer's Society initiative which helps people and organisations learn more about what it is like to live with dementia. The business was also the first legal firm in the Bolton area to be accredited with the Law Societyโ€™s Wills and Inheritance Quality Scheme which sets the benchmark for best practice and transparency in the provision of wills and estate planning services.

Judith Bromley, head of wills and probate at Russell & Russell, said: โ€œThis is a fantastic achievement for Victoria and Harry, theyโ€™ve worked extremely hard to attain their certification and their membership means that all the probate solicitors at Russell and Russell are members of Solicitors for the Elderly. This is a kite mark that demonstrates that the firm is committed to helping vulnerable and elderly clients to ensure they receive the best service possible.โ€
