    • I recommend Michael Bowdish.
    • I hired Michael 1-3 years ago.
    • Michael handled my Bankruptcy / Chapter 13 matter.
    • I have previously worked with 3-5 lawyers.

    Fearful of past lawyers I gave Michael a try. Absolutely the best experience! He listens, advises and has an excellent repore. He explained every step completely and made it understandable to the unknowledgeable on law. His office staff is rated pretty high to me also. I would definately hire again and recommend to any one that is needing assistance.

    He defended me the very 1st time I ever got in trouble & he did an amazing job. He has defended my brother, my friends daughter & he's amazing. His background & relationships with opposing counsel really benefits his clients!!

    • I recommend Michael Bowdish.
    • I hired Michael 1-3 years ago.
    • Michael handled my DUI / DWI matter.
    • I have previously worked with 1-2 lawyers.

    I hired Mr. Bowdish (and his associate Melissa Sharpsteen) in November 2010. I was arrested on suspicion of a 2nd DUI within 5 years. The penalties and risk were steep and I was scared.

    At all times, Mike kept me informed, fought vigorously on my behalf, was prepared, and his good humor and disposition kept me as relaxed as possible.

    Because of some shenanigans from the State and some scheduling difficulties, my case lasted nearly 2 years. Mike fought to protect my interests the entire time.

    He was responsive and prepared and tenacious. In the end, he managed to get my charge reduced to a reckless driving, which kept me driving and out of jail.

    I will be forever grateful to Mike Bowdish. I give him my highest recommendation.

    • I recommend Michael Bowdish.
    • I hired Michael more than 3 years ago.
    • Michael handled my Criminal Defense matter.
    • I have previously worked with 3-5 lawyers.

    I was facing a minimum 36.5 months in prison if I was found guilty of even the smallest violation of my probation. I hired Michael and Melissa from the Pinellas County Jail where I sat. Michael and Melissa worked Non Stop for days straight, not only fighting the allegations against me but also being my contact to the outside world. The compassion they both showed through the ordeal was unsurpassed. Michael successfully fought the allegations resulting in complete Dismissal of All Charges. Resulting in my immediate release from jail with no other implications. I was able to keep my career, my life, and my freedom thanks to Michael Bowdish and Melissa Sharpsteen.

    I owe my Freedom to this law firm and I Highly recommend Anyone looking for a great attorney to choose Sharpsteen and Associates!
