Law firm Furley Page has appointed one of its newly-qualified
solicitors to its Elderly Client Team.
Louise Mathias-Williams, 26, from Canterbury, undertakes Court
of Protection work, helping elderly or vulnerable clients who have
lost capacity and need assistance to deal with their affairs.
She also advises on care fee funding issues and NHS Continuing

wills based on a client’s individual circumstances.
Louise spent two years training with Furley Page in a specialist

The team is led by partner Nicola Rostron. She said: “Louise has
an excellent understanding of the issues that affect the elderly,
which can often be very complicated and daunting.”
Ms Mathias-Williams graduated from Warwick University with a
first in English literature, and went on to the College of Law in
London where she achieved a commendation in the Graduate Diploma in
Law and a distinction in the Legal Practice Course.
