Harrison Clark Rickerbys

Phillipa Bruce-Kerr

I help people to understand the challenges they may face as they get older, and provide guidance on how to tackle them head on. I work with families to plan for the future they want, and support older people when they want to keep their independence.

I specialise in helping older and vulnerable people, and many of my clients are referred to me by charities such as Age UK, Alzheimer’s Society and Scope. I’m also an approved adviser for Mencap, and a fully accredited member of Solicitors for the Elderly. It’s important to be clear and to listen carefully when working with any person, but I use my skills to bring reassurance to my clients. Thanks to my knowledge and experience, I provide an insight that relatively few solicitors can offer.

I’m happy to visit my clients at home, or in hospitals or care homes, and I’m always available when they have concerns or questions.
