It is a sad fact of life that there are some who seek to take advantage of elderly or vulnerable people. Financial abuse can take many forms. A family member may take money without knowledge or consent, or by exerting undue influence to induce “gifts” of money or property. A person entrusted with power of attorney may abuse that trust. Unscrupulous salesmen may force or bamboozle someone into entering into contracts for goods or services they do not want or need.
Our specialist lawyers at Bell & Buxton offer a full range of services aimed at minimising the risk of financial abuse, stopping it in its tracks where it is uncovered and undoing the damage as far as possible.

Very pleased with how we were treated and how easy the process of making a Will is. Also, many thanks for your scheme for St Lukes Hospice. Altogether a very professional service with a human touch. Thank you.
"John Breeze is very approachable and professional. I was kept well-informed with regular updates and clear explanations as my case progressed. I cannot adequately express my gratitude to him for guiding me through each step of the legal process...I would not hesitate to approach Bell & Buxton should I require legal advice again."
