About Bruce Childers Attorney at Law

At Bruce Childers law we have over 38 years of experience practicing in Pensacola 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.
