Mr. Bowden treated my case as if he was representing me even though I had not hired him. After telling him the specifics of my case, he wanted me to keep him up to date with what was going on. I am charged with domestic violence (cruelty towards a child) and the arresting police officer put things in the report that were not true in the least. After my family met with the state attorney and told him that they wanted the whole thing dropped, I let Mr. Bowden know and he still offered advice on what to do next. I now have his cell phone number in case I need him at court.

Mr.Bowden and his team are outstanding! He took the time to speak with me over the phone when I had a DO I and didn't know what actions to take. He was very honest and explained the process and opt ions to me. Furthermore his team spoke with me as a walk in and answered any questions I had. I am great fun for their advice and help during a very difficult time for me and my children.

Divorce is an awful thing to deal with. Steven will be the nicest person on the planet when you first see him, butter wouldn't melt in his mouth. But once he has your money pray you don't experience what my partner did. You will only ever get to talk to his staff and they don't know what they are doing most of the time. He is not aggressive in court. You will hardly ever be informed on what is going on and even then decisions will be made without consulting you. He is stressful to deal with and divorce is stressful enough without your lawyer adding more. Don't believe all the positive reviews anyone can make accounts and write reviews . Look hard at the negative ones and pray that you are not going to be the next person writing one. My honest opinion is if you are female and going through a divorce the worst decision you will ever make is to contract this lawyer and if you do you will remember reading this and wishing you took notice of it. The best thing that happened to my partner is she contracted a different lawyer before her divorce ended. Which obviously happens allot as Stevens staff informed her Steven usually sends out a nasty letter when people do that. And they were correct -he did.

I have used Mr. Bowden in the last ten years with matters related to Bankruptcy. He always kept me informed and I always knew everything that he was doing. Recently, I had to revisit an old bankruptcy issue, but even though he no longer does bankruptcy cases, he spoke to me in two different instances, recommended another lawyer and then briefed my new attorney without me having to pay him a penny out of pocket. I consider that honorable, and says a lot about his character.

When I left my abusive relationship my parents said get a bull dog to protect my child. I didn't understand what I was being asked to do. They explained that a bull dog sinks his teeth in and doesn't let go, or break under pressure. That is Mr. Bowden! He sunk his teeth into my ex's lawyer, never buckling under the pressures of litigation and stupid requests by his lawyer. In the end we got even more than we expected. Thank you for protecting my child and helping me out of abusive marriage. This is the one you should always get!

I cannot give a higher recommendation for Steven Bowden than this! My daughter was in dire circumstances—all of her own doing—and we were just hoping for the best. We found that Mr. Bowden was hard-working and knowledgeable, and he kept us informed throughout the entire legal process. Coming from out of state without any knowledge of Pensacola attorneys and picking one at random, I do not think we could have made a better choice. If I ever have any other issues requiring legal advice in Florida--personal or business-related--my first phone call would be to Steven Bowden without hesitation!

When I had my consultation Mr. Bowden was straight forward, he even had his paralegal go and pull statutes that a previous attorney I consulted didn't even inform me of. Mr. Bowden gave very good advice and was knowledgeable with how our situation was due to the fact my husband was military and we had orders to move to Hawaii within the next few weeks. I was able to move and get my daughter settled in our new home. I was very satisfied knowing that at anytime my case was to become very active I had an attorney in Pensacola who was fast acting and knew the laws & if he didn't (lets be honest not any attorney can tell you they know every single law) Mr. Bowden took the time to look up the statue and go over it with me so I felt very comfortable. He's very understanding & not a thief. I am satisfied with the end result of my case. I'm pleased to say that if I need anymore legal advice I know off top the attorney I'm going to call... Mr. Bowden.

He should not even have a license to practice law. He told me we were having a jury selection and not to be late. He even had his paralegal drive me....and we were an hour late! Could you imagine?
Then, I found out the entire situation was a sham. I paid him 10,000 for a defense he never provided
He does no legal research. Actually, he doesn't know how to even do it. I did most of it for him.
Stay away from him at all cost.

I was in a very difficult divorce and custody case. Mr. Bowden took the necessary time and did his research for me to be very satisfied with the results of the case that lasted nearly a year. Without being too specific, I was looking at an uphill battle to get anything close to a result that would be acceptable. Because of Mr. Bowden's knowledge of the law and his excellent negotiating skills, again I am very satisfied with the results of My Case that he was able to deliver.
