Nikita is a solicitor in our Private Client Department and assists in a broad range of issues affecting you and your family, providing you with advice on wills, trusts and elderly Client issues. She can also help those that have suffered a bereavement and need sympathetic legal advice during a difficult time.
“I particularly enjoy working with elderly clients. It is a known fact that people are living longer and are often unable to deal with their affairs alone- some of whom do not have any family to rely on.
Latimer Hinks can assist people with handling their affairs, in circumstances where they may not have anyone else to assist with matters. A lot of elderly people are left to struggle in their own home, or taken into care very suddenly before having the opportunity to manage their affairs and have everything in order. We can review a client’s situation, and, whether it be with their approval or under the umbrella of a Power of Attorney, help elderly clients manage their accounts, ensure they are entitled to the correct benefits and even take out the appropriate measures to make sure they are contributing the correct amount towards their care fees.
I enjoy being part of a legal team who are able to recognise when a person needs help and have the means to offer it. Sometimes clients feel at ease and confident that they can put their trust in a firm like Latimer Hinks. It is definitely the most rewarding job, offering something back to our community whilst also delivering a high level of service.”
