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.
Following Government advice the office will now be closed until further notice. We will continue to work remotely from home and you can contact us by phone and email. The main switchboard will be open and operating during normal office hours 9am-5pm Monday to Friday, we will pass your call on and ask the relevant person to contact you. At this difficult time we wish all our clients well, if you need us we will endeavour to respond.

“My law firm doesn’t offer a contentious trusts and probate service but we receive a significant number of enquiries which I try to help with. I have worked throughout the country, including for some other good Yorkshire firms, and I have always been aware of Bell and Buxton’s nationally renowned for your expertise in the field Contentious Trusts and Probate. It’s for this reason that I always refer clients to them for expert legal advice.”
