Bell and Buxton Solicitors are widely known and highly-regarded for their expertise in advising on matters involving elderly and vulnerable clients.
Whether it'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 given expert input into investigations into journalism conducted by both the Dispatches and the Money Box programmes.
Really impressive charity links - made it possible to donate to a charity that is really important to me - thank you!
"Katie dealt with things promptly and kept me up to date with what was happening, I felt she cared and was committed to my case."
“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.”
