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.
Senior Partner | Head of Contentious Probate and Trusts
Bell and Buxton Solicitors are widely known and highly-regarded for their expertise in advising on matters involving elderly and vulnerable clients.
Whether that's protecting the assets of an elderly person being financially exploited or advising on the best way to meet the cost of care, our knowledgeable and approachable team of solicitors can help.
We have considerable experience of advising on complex cases, which can often be emotionally charged. Quality is a matter of personal pride to everyone in the team. Our skilled solicitors are adept at dealing with matters sensitively when required, but equally able to take a robust stance to stop any unfair treatment that might be taking place.
Our solicitors who handle these cases are all members of one or more professional bodies including: The Society of Trust and Estate Practitioners [STEP]; Solicitors for the Elderly [SFE] and the Association of Contentious Trust and Probate Specialists [ACTAPS]. We also have two solicitors who regularly act as Independent Deputies, as well as three solicitors who are registered Dementia Friends. This brings our clients peace of mind and confidence that their case is being handled by highly-competent lawyers who can achieve the best possible outcome.
We have been sought out as industry-experts by both the BBC and Channel 4 to contribute to documentaries covering this field and Mary Butler gave expert input into investigations into journalism conducted by both the Dispatches and the Money Box programmes.
"We were very impressed with your services, couldn't fault you in any way."
"Bell & Buxton have always been prompt in their assistance to clients.I rang up for some help & was pleased that Mr Neal gave me the help I required immediately."
"The help and support we received by Demelza and her team made the process easy and stress free. Without this I wouldn't have had the courage to finalise my divorce, I couldn't suggest any improvements."
"Mary Butler provided reassuring and knowledgeable advice in difficult circumstances."
"I am very happy with the service provided. Massive thank you to the team."
