About Me

Attorney Bowser has successfully defended hundreds of cases for clients charged with drunk driving, commonly referred to as Operating Under the Influence (OUI) in Massachusetts and Driving While Intoxicated (DWI) in New Hampshire.   He is Board Certified as a DUI Defense Specialist by the National College for DUI Defense. This certification is accredited by the American Bar Association but not regulated by the Commonwealth of Massachusetts.  He has developed a well earned reputation for being on of the top drunk driving defenders in the area. 


 


Attorney Bowser also handles a variety of personal injury claims for clients sustaining injury due to the negligence of others.  This negligence takes several forms.  His cases routinely include motor vehicle collision, premises liability, slip and fall, construction site, product defect and medical mal-practice.  In addition to meaningful settlements for his clients, Attorney Bowser is known for his ability and willingness to try a personal injury case to verdict.  His record of success in personal injury claims includes several large jury verdicts, even on cases that were deemed too risky or too small by the insurance industry and insurance defense bar.
