Meet The Team

The cost of care for the elderly is a complex area of law. Getting expert legal advice and planning ahead will help to ensure that your partner has enough to live on after paying care home fees and may even prevent you from having to use your family home to fund care.

There are many common misconceptions concerning payment of the fees for nursing care or a residential home. Our team of expert solicitors will guide you through social services financial assessment rules and make certain that you do not overpay for care or compromise your family’s financial position.

We examine all the options available and review how social services will treat your assets including investments; income and capital assessments; the family home and jointly held assets. We offer a complete service for the elderly client who needs advice on how to organise their affairs to minimise both tax liability and any loss arising out of care fees.

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."

  • First impressions at reception were very friendly and helpful and very caring on leaving. The offer of coffee was most welcome. The understanding by Mr Sissons of the situation was to the point and any aspect that could cause unforeseen (by me) problems was soon spotted.
