I had Courtney on retainer for 3-1/2 years starting in early 2012 and cannot recommend her highly enough. She was always responsive and sympathetic. She listened to my concerns and offered legal advice well-tailored both to the unique elements of my situation (negotiating the interpretation of custody and child support questions relating to an already-existing divorce settlement) and to the parameters I laid out during our initial consultation regarding how I hoped the relationship with my ex would proceed.
Courtney's advice saved me thousands of dollars by demonstrating that the substantial additional funds (above and beyond very generous child support) being demanded by my ex were not, in fact, owed according to our settlement - money that I was instead able to put aside for my daughter's education.
Courtney provided peace of mind and sound advice at a moment when both of those things were absolutely essential.

I have had the fortunate/unfortunate experience to be a repeat client of Mrs. Bowes. She help to guide me through my first divorce and help keep it fair and equitable. She was then able to help me navigate the very trying world of a HIGH conflict divorce and continues to guide and assist me and my family.
I cannot say enough about Courtney and recommend her to anyone who needs a kind, compassionate, down to earth, and exceedingly competent attorney.

Rarely is a divorce amicable or stress free...especially when children are involved. Emotions are high and stakes are even higher. Courtney Bowes and her team have mastered the right combination of compassion, understanding and aggressiveness to help maneuver through these difficult times. As a father of two, I felt as if the odds were stacked against me and i was fearful of not having my fair share of time with the children. Courtney and her team eliminated those fears and fought for my rights as a dad! When choosing a family law attorney, you need a personal touch and understanding...Ms. Bowes and her team fit the bill and then some!

Courtney Bowes, Esquire is a fantastic lawyer and an amazing mediator. She is professional, extremely intelligent and compassionate. She puts the needs of her clients and their children first in every case. She is a creative problem-solver who goes the extra mile to resolve difficult disputes. She is also one of the most caring and dedicated attorneys I know. She always takes the time to answer questions, brainstorm or help out a client or fellow lawyer. I highly recommend her mediation services and/or litigation skills to anyone who needs assistance in their family law matters.
