About Us

The law firm of Bobbetts Mackan has its origins in the 1800's. Its feet are firmly planted in the present and its eyes are focused on the delivery of specialist legal services to the people of Bristol, the South West and beyond.

The Bobbetts Brothers established the firm in the mid 1800’s. They were lawyers committed to the provision of affordable and accessible legal services to local people. To this day we seek to maintain this tradition.

The practice has grown and developed over 150 years into the law firm it is today. Having embraced two other well-established Bristol firms. Parry Mackan in the 1980's and Culpan Williams in January 2005. We are local lawyers with a regional presence, concerned that clients should have access to justice through our specialist and expert teams.

Our commitment to accessible and affordable legal services benefits both those clients who pay for our services in the usual way and those who are publicly funded through the legal services commission in the following are franchised areas:

  • Family and Children.
  • Civil Litigation.
  • Criminal Defence.
  • Actions against the Police.
Whilst we are committed to publicly  funded work it is but a part of the services we provide as an exploration of our website will demonstrate.

We offer the accessibility and approachability of a local firm with the expertise, specialisation and focus of a substantial regional practice.

We provide our services through five specialist teams, and as you explore this web site you will see the breadth and depth of the services we offer.

We are a people centred, quality assured, team based law firm with a staff proud of the contribution they make to the firm and to the community.

As partners and staff we are always happy to talk with our clients and ensure that the services we provide are tailored to their needs and delivered in a way that meets expectations.

Talk to us. 
We want to be your personal lawyers to help you whenever an event in your life needs legal input.
