Welcome to
Bruce The Lawyers
Glasgow | Motherwell | Airdrie

We do not claim to be the best criminal defence lawyers in Scotland, Glasgow or Lanarkshire as clearly that is a subjective matter, however, we are currently the biggest criminal firm in the West of Scotland and the 2nd biggest in Scotland. We believe this is for very good reason.

We have been established since 2002 and have three conveniently located offices in Glasgow (beside Glasgow Sheriff Court), Motherwell (at Motherwell Cross) and Airdrie (across from Airdrie Sheriff Court). We have an experienced legal team of 7 Solicitors and a Consultant Solicitor Advocate. We operate throughout Scotland in all types of criminal cases ranging from not wearing a seatbelt to murder.

We offer:

  • 24/7 availability;
  • Price and guidance on all criminal matters,
  • Fearless representation in all of Scotland's criminal Courts (District, Sheriff and High Courts);
  • Representation in Appeals, Bail Hearings, Prison and Parole Hearings;
  • Advice and representation in all types of Road Traffic cases;
  • An expert legal team and caring support staff;
  • Advice and representation throughout Scotland.

We undertake Legal Aid and privately funded work. You may contact us 24 hours a day on any of the following numbers:
