For life overseas. With our seal of approval.
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’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.
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.
Prompt, professional service and sound advice.
"Very professional & considerate. Charles Neal has a friendly and reassuring approach. He explains legal issues clearly & allows plenty of time for you to consider any options presented."
“Thank you Bell & Buxton for helping my daughter move into her new home. It was a ‘bit of a marathon’ for us and your team successfully helped us through what was an unusually difficult process.”
- Mike Peat
“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.”
- Testimonial from a local Solicitor
"I have nothing but admiration for Bell & Buxton, they have been very supportive, caring and always ready to listen and help. John Breeze was my rock during a very difficult time, I would not have got through this battle without him, he was my advisor and my friend. Thank you John Breeze and Bell & Buxton."
