    I have sent clients that needed help with wills and trusts and have received very good feedback on the work Joel has done. I have immense confidence in sending clients to him whenever they have issues that are in his line of practice. He is thorough, knowledgeable, and empathetic - all traits that help him represent clients very well.

  • Joel Geelan

    I have personally observed Mr. Fowlks’ strong work ethic and unwavering advocacy on behalf of his clients. Mr. Fowlks’ background provides him with the experience and skills necessary to address his clients' needs. A strong indicator of an attorney’s ability is whether his/her professional colleagues would entrust their personal affairs in the attorney’s hands. Not every attorney is capable of earning such respect and trust. I would trust Mr. Fowlks to handle my case, and that is why I eagerly endorse this attorney.
