My husband & I hired Mr Dowlen to help us obtain custody of our nephew. He was awesome, very helpful & knowledgable. He is also very personable. I definetly recommend him to anyone who needs legal help.

Mr. Dowlen handled a Medical Marijuana case for my family. He defended his client's Doctor monitered use of Med MJ against the Department of Children's Services and the State of Tennessee's vile selective enforcement of Cannabis Prohibition Laws. As Mr. Dowlen predicted, the Department's abusive "investigative" culture toward Cannabis users resulted in a negative and punitive ruling. However, Zale refused to back down and the Departments ruling was over turned on Appeal. So in the end, Mr. Dowlen won our case, a family was left intact and Justice prevailed. Zale will handle your situation, whatever it may be, with the same honesty and legal integrity bestowed on our family.

Attorney Dowlen handled my case with extreme care and professionalism. At a time when my spouse and I were worried that our housing situation would be wrapped up in costly legal proceedings, Zale was able to take over the case and reduce the time, expense and proceedings to a minimum. He is not only trustworthy and confidential when dealing with privileged attorney-client information, he is also exceptionally knowledgeable, accurate and able to bring about quick resolutions that are beneficial to his client base. Simply stated, he is an excellent attorney.

Nate handled my discrimination case against Putnam County (Library) when they refused to let me teach my faith-based book "Personality Based Evangelism" in their PUBLIC meeting room. He volunteers his services to Alliance Defense Fund to help in faith-based discrimination cases. So yeah, Nate is the real deal, trustworthy and keeps on top of what he is doing for you. Plus he will tell you "how it is"... which some lawyers don't do.

Zale is an attorney full of integrity. He is a no B S type of person. I always knew exactly where I stood regarding whatever situation Zale was directing me through. He did not hesitate to let me know when a situation or question was out of his area of expertise and would either find that information for me, or direct me to exactly where I could find it. Bottom line for me is that I know Zale is trustworthy. He would NEVER tell me what I wanted to hear, unless what I wanted to hear lined up with the facts and the truth of the case or situation. I will continue to use Zale and look forward to his Christ centered, practical, straight forward and honest approach to his profession.

This attorney represented our family on a case where the state wrongfully took our children. It was the most devastating time in our lives and at times we felt hopeless and like we were fighting a losing battle. But Zale refused to back down and went WAY above and beyond the call of duty. His efforts were more than he was required to do and in court he was brilliant! He really "does his homework" and fights for his clients. He stands up for what is RIGHT and fights for justice. If you are looking for an excellent attorney to represent you, a man of true integrity, who is more concerned about his clients well being than himself, than Zale Dowlen is the man for the job. He will not let you down! I will recommend him to everyone I come in contact with. He took a terrible situation and stood his ground and never gave up. Thanks to him our family is back together. We are very grateful for such an incredible attorney!
