Bell and Buxton’s family law team is headed by Demelza Wrigley. Demelza is a highly experienced and well-regarded Sheffield family law solicitor who won the Family Law Award at the 2017 Yorkshire Legal Awards.

COVID-19

During the new lockdown we will continue to work remotely wherever possible. However, our offices will be open should it be necessary to visit to deliver documents or to see any of our solicitors. Please make sure that you make an appointment for any visit as we need to limit the number of visitors to our offices at any one time and ensure that they and our staff are safe.

Where possible we will arrange virtual meetings by video conference/telephone with our clients and others when appropriate. If you want to talk to one of our solicitors or need legal advice please contact us and we will do all that we can to assist. Please bear with us if it takes a little longer than usual to reply to you.

Anyone visiting us at our offices will need to wear a face covering and follow all the government guidance regarding social distancing.


Demelza and her team specialise in all family law matters and pride themselves on being legally knowledgeable, accessible and ready to fight your case. They take the time to understand what you want to achieve and work hard to achieve the best resolution for you and your family.

We have a reputation for working with clients to resolve a wide range of family law issues, from pre-nuptial agreements to more specialist areas involving same-sex relationships and foreign jurisdictions. Whilst we try to keep disputes out of court where ever possible, sometimes this is unavoidable, and we have experience of taking complex and difficult cases to the Court of Appeal.

We offer all clients a free initial appointment and have a range of fixed fee ‘divorce only’ packages to suit all budgets and requirements.

Transparency on the issue of legal fees is guaranteed, with clear costs breakdowns provided from the outset and throughout the duration of your case.
