Daniel Woodman and Co was founded in early 2002 aiming to provide quality advice and legal services to the people of Southville, Bedminster and Bristol generally.

After 10 years of training and experience working at a high Street practice in the Bristol area Daniel Woodman opened up as a sole trader, primarily specialising in criminal defence work, but also advising in civil litigation, employment, personal injury and debt recovery matters.

The firm expanded rapidly, yet organically to service a strong demand. Anthony Pearce (managing clerk and accredited police station representative) joined the practice in the summer of 2002 and Polly Fews (accounts) joined in the autumn of the same year.

Subsequently the business has continued to grow and diversify into providing assistance with other ever expanding areas of law including personal injury, criminal injuries compensation applications and appeals, civil litigation, employment advice, prison law.

Further expansion has been necessary to enable us to continue to provide an excellent quality of service to all of our clients within an ever expanding client base.

April 2012 saw the opening of a second office in the Kingswood area to offer Family and Children law advice. Headed by the vastly experienced Lisa Wilkes the office has become an integral part of the Kingswood community.

Several members of the firm were born and bred in Bristol, enabling a sometimes unique insight into cases and a wealth of local knowledge which can be applied where appropriate.
