About Me

Sacramento attorney Robert C. Bowman, Jr. practices primarily employment law, family law, business and real estate law, utilizing his extensive experience in business, family and human resources to provide practical advice to his clients.

Mr. Bowman’s path to founder of Sacramento’s comprehensive law firm Bowman and Associates, APC. represents his style of business and life; “Success does not come to you, you have to go out and get it.” In law and in business, Robert has not waited for success, but gone out to get it.

Business, Real Estate, and the Law

Besides his over thirty years in the nationwide retail industry, both in management and in human resources, Robert has always had an entrepreneurial spirit. This spirit has included ownership of senior care facilities, a beauty shop, a vending business, a landscaping business and a railroad crossing business. Robert has also been involved in the real estate market, as an owner of real property and landlord, Robert has extensive experience in the field of real estate law. Robert has capitalized upon his business experience to offer counsel and guidance for clients related to business law. As a human resources manager, Robert oversaw ADA, DFEH, FMLA, EEO and all other applicable local, state and federal regulations related to employment matters for a large regional area of a nationwide retail company. It was in this capacity that Robert developed a passion to help employees.

Family and the Law

Mr. Bowman is also dedicated to family law including divorce and custody issues. Family is a central part of Robert’s philosophy in law. As father of four successful children and grandfather to three, Robert’s compassion and respect for family and the individual is the guidepost through the often difficult issues surrounding family law.

California Law

Robert has always had an interest in law and a quest for learning from the time he was a child. Robert received his Bachelor’s Degree [Bachelors of Science in Business Management] from the University of Phoenix and has since utilized this education to further advance his career.
