A word from Claire

“I’ve been a member of SFE for many years and on the Board for that last 5 years being the only Director from Wales.” said Claire. “Studying for these qualifications has enabled me to demonstrate at an independent level that I have both the professional skills and the softer skills to ensure that our clients can not only trust the advice but feel confident that it is being offered in a way that takes account of any personal issues there may be. I am proud to be one of the first members to have achieved both qualifications and that this will undoubtedly improve the quality of service we as a company can provide for our elderly clients. “

Laith Khatib, Partner and Director at Howells Solicitors commented on the significance of Claire’s achievements. “The private client team at Howells has grown significantly in the last two years and we are now advising more elderly clients than ever before. Claire’s new accreditation sets her apart from many other solicitors in her field of expertise and demonstrates her commitment to providing clients with excellent advice and service standards.”
