I am an Associate Solicitor in the Elderly, Care & Mental Capacity team specialising in legal issues affecting elderly and vulnerable clients. This includes long term care funding such as, Continuing Health Care (CHC) funding claims, local authority funding and paying for care privately (estate planning); ordinary and lasting powers of attorney; deputyship and other applications to the court of protection; and mental capacity issues (including making capacity assessments and dealing with disputes between the family of a vulnerable person and social services).
I am a full member of Solicitors for the Elderly (SFE) and the Court of Protection Practitioners Association. I sit on the committees for the Macclesfield Law Society and the Staffordshire and Cheshire regional group of Solicitors for the Elderly. I am also a Trustee for Age UK Cheshire East and sit on the Board of Trustees.
Within the firm I am also responsible for the environmental policy within SAS Daniels’ Corporate Social Responsibility team.
Joined SAS Daniels:2007
What people say about me:"Thank you for all your help during this rather unsettling time for our family. Mum seems reassured and I think it is in part due to your kindness and understanding with her. I am very grateful especially whilst living so far away from her." (Private Individual, France)
Solicitor Genevieve Powrie "takes the time to help to find the best solutions for people." (Legal 500, 2018)
Why I'm no ordinary professional:I am a specialist in my field and can see where a broad range of advice is required on a narrow topic. I have extensive training in mental capacity issues and have the softer skills required to put vulnerable clients at ease and ensure that they understand the advice provided.

A bit about me
What's the best place you've visited and why?
Buenos Aires. It’s hot, beautiful, exciting and has some of the best food and wine in the world.
What animal are you most like and why?
An elephant because I am strong, honest, loyal and compassionate.
What was your first / most interesting job?
One job I had whilst working for an environmental conservation charity was to act as a tour guide for a delegation from China hoping to achieve UNESCO world heritage status for their mountain: I gave a Daoist monk his first ice cream cornet and watched him spill it all on his shoes.
