Experience When it Matters Most

Getting the best result for your case means having an attorney with experience in the local courts of Escambia County and the surrounding areas. It means having a team with proven results and the detailed knowledge to construct the strongest arguments on your behalf, whether it’s so you can protect your best interests in a family or marital dispute, prepare a will or trust for your future, or need to convince a jury that you’re innocent of a crime.

At Bruce Childers law we have decades of experience practicing in Escambia County and neighboring communities. We know the law and we know the courts. Our experience provides an advantageous perspective for your criminal defense, family law, and wills and probate issues. We understand that many people may be reluctant to contact a lawyer because they’re worried they won’t be able to afford the fees. You may be tempted to try to handle the legal matter yourself, but that’s often a recipe for a less-than-desirable outcome. When the custody of your children is at stake, or you’ve been accused of a crime, we want you to have access to the quality representation and justice you deserve.

Call us today to discuss your case so that you can tell your story, learn your options, and discover how we can help. We offer affordable fees for your family law or criminal case; to learn more about our legal and real world experience call us at (850) 434-8000 or contact us by email.

Sign a Contract:

Once you are ready to proceed we will present you with a contract to begin working on your behalf.


Payments and Retainer:

During our initial meeting we will discuss our fees, payment, and retainer structure. It is our goal to make this process as clear as possible based on your type of case. Our years of experience will provide you with a very good ballpark estimate and what to possibly expect during the course of your case.


It’s time to investigate and gather information about your case! We considered this the most important part in your case; lawyers win and lose cases in court based on the knowledge they gather and homework they do based on your case. We don’t show up to court unprepared.


Fight in Court:

Not every case goes all the way to trial as many are solved through negotiation. However if your case is not resolved by negotiation or mediation we are prepared and ready to fight for you in court.
