Tonina heads up a specialist team at Tollers Solicitors, a leading regional law firm of over 140 years.
The Elderly and Vulnerable Client Unit was set up in early 2013 to provide expert advice to the growing problems faced by an ageing population. Tonina specialises in Court of Protection and Elderly Client affairs, including contentious issues around financial abuse of the Elderly and Vulnerable. Tonina and her team also work with clients who require care by assisting to create Lasting Powers of Attorney, ensuring that their funding has been correctly assessed and making challenges where this is not the case.
Tonina works to raise awareness of the legal implications of losing mental capacity and has delivered talks to various groups, charities and organisations in the past, including Milton Keynes Carers and Headway MK. Tonina offers speaking engagements free of charge and has a close relationship with Willen Hospice, Age UK Milton Keynes and Age UK Northamptonshire.
