  • Loren M. Dickstein

    Over the past 10 years, I've referred dozens of men to Mr. Bowyer for consultation or representation in divorce and family law cases. He is not “just another divorce attorney.” Brent Bowyer has a passion for helping men through the most difficult time life has to offer…a breakup of the family. I’ve found that when other lawyers have told their clients that they are going to lose an argument in court or that everything is going downhill in a case, Brent has been able to take over their representation and get results the other lawyers thought were impossible. Quite simply, he has the passion, fight, intelligence and effectiveness that other lawyers who represent men in family law cases just don’t have. Any man who is represented by Brent Bowyer is very fortunate to have one of the top lawyers in Michigan on his side.
