Several of our solicitors are recommended Legal 500 Lawyers with the team being described as ‘courteous, knowledgeable and experienced.’
"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."
"A first-class service at all times over a four-year period. Highly professional, reputable and informative."
"Martin was excellent in all our dealings with my mother and her Will and sorting this out for her. Always professional, but very approachable and honest."
“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.”

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.
