Complex, long term litigation and resolution
The Bowes Law Group excels with complex, long term cases. I actually left a firm to retain the Bowes Law Group. My case was not easy for anyone involved. When you are in a situation like mine you need an attorney who wants to understand you, not because they are paid to do so. Compassion is important, however without the skills to navigate a complex case, it's useless. The Bowes Law Group excelled for me in trail. They are very detailed. I never had to recount any data. In fact, they remembered details from memory that I would never expect anyone to remember. This is huge! When you have a curve ball thrown at you in the middle of trial, my attorney recounted every detail and evidence important to my case! I highly recommend anyone to use this firm, may the case be quickly resolved or not. None of us are comfortable in these situations, and you will find confidence and trust with the Bowes Law Group.

An excellent and sympathetic advisor
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.

Excellent
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.

When you need more than just a lawyer
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 is Awesome
Courtney was recommended to me to help me clean up the mess my initial divorce attorney caused. I was in serious financial trouble after loosing my job after the divorce. Courtney is extremely calm, level headed and professional. She laid out a plan to help me get back on my feet and move forward. She always had the answers I needed and then executed all of the paperwork and moved the case forward. I also really appreciate her staff, as they are very helpful, understanding and professional as well. I highly recommend Courtney to anyone.

Excellent divorce and follow up services!
Courtney and her team were professional, helpful, timely and compassionate in providing courtroom and documentation requirements for my divorce proceedings as well as some follow up complications. I would highly recommend the Bowe's firm to someone who is looking for an attorney that listens very well and provides hands on legal services. My ex-wife and I were married for 15 years and there were some unusual circumstances involved that were expediently addressed.

Thorough and well prepared
Very grateful to Courtney and her firm. I believe that we won our case because she was thorough and well prepared at each step. She looked at each possibility from multiple angles in preparation for our trial. Above all, she was courteous and caring, providing astute legal guidance during an anxious time for me and my family.
