We are home to one of only a small number of specialist solicitors trained to authenticate legal documents for use in the UK or abroad.
Bell and Buxton Solicitors are trusted by generations of families to provide legal advice on a wide range of personal legal issues.
Whatever the nature of legal advice, whether it’s dealing with a divorce, writing a Will, or getting legal documentation in place that protects a vulnerable loved one, our solicitors understand that it’s an extremely important and sometimes emotive time.
Our highly experienced team have a reputation for their high standards and focus on client care. This is reflected by various industry award wins and short-listings, consistent recognition by the UK Legal 500 for expertise in Private Client work, along with exemplary client testimonials and recommendations.
They have expertise in the field of contentious probate, with Senior Partner, Mary Butler and her team, leading the way nationally for their expertise in the dealing with the most complex case of disputed wills and estates. Mary has appeared on television and radio providing her insight and advice to families about contesting a Will.
The firm was shortlisted for a 2018 STEP Private Client Award in the ‘Vulnerable Client Advisory Practice of the Year’ category. These national awards recognise only the very best solicitors in the UK.
In 2017, Associate Solicitor, Demelza Wrigley won the prestigious Family Law Award at the Yorkshire Legal Awards, beating off stiff competition in this highly competitive category.
