Family Law - Post Dissolution Matter
I hired and worked with Mr. Bowen for two years on my family law case. I had spent years trying to resolve it fully, without success. Paul took to time to sit down with me and go over all possible outcomes. He was easy to reach and was able to get results for me. I felt a tremendous amount of stress relief as a result of my case being finally settled. I highly recommend Paul Bowen and his firm. They are extremely professional, kind and understanding.

Professional and Compassionate
I started working with Paul about a year ago, after my previous attorney left family law. I was very stressed about finding a new lawyer in the middle of my divorce, but Paul and his staff made it a very easy and stress-free transition. I am very impressed with his attention to detail and his genuine concern for me and my family.

Best attorney
Mr. Bowen represented me in a very lengthy divocre case that wound up in divorce trial . His expert knowledge and experience not only for me exactly what was wanted but also allowed my family to remain whole ! Paul has spent countless hours beyond the normal 9-5 to ensure my every need was met and never let a phone call nor email go unanswered . He is nothing short of more than what a 5 star rating would allow ! He comes highly recommend and will most definitely give you the best advice possible in your own unique situation ! If you ever find yourself in a situation where you are in need of an attorney in this area , Paul Bowen is highly recommended !

Willing to venture were no one else will.
I am so thankful for Paul. I have an extremely hard case. I called 75 lawyers in a 45 day period. No one was willing to fight for my family and many said it was a lost cause. Paul was not only willing to stand up to the plate and take on my case with a smile but he met with me and went over my case detail by detail. He spent extra time that no one else was willing to do and explained to me what I needed to know. He is incredibly smart and has ideas that most lawyers do not have. He actually listened to me when I said I needed help. I believe Paul Bowen is a super hero and that he has been called to be a voice for those who don't have one. Thank you Paul! I am truly blessed to have you fight for my family when no one else would.

Words will never do justice
I hired Mr. Bowen for my child custody case and I got the results I was looking for and couldn't be happier! Mr. Bowen is an amazing attorney, but more an amazing person who listens and cares! His fee was more than reasonable. He is very efficient and effective. Also, his staff was just as amazing! I would recommend him to anyone and I would hire him again! Thank you Mr. Bowen!!

Amazing Job
An Amazing Attorney. Very easy to work with and very thorough. Provided advice when needed and always gave list of options on what could be done. Also, kept communication channels open at all times and responded every single time in a timely manner. He let me review and check all documents prior to submittal. If you need a great attorney, look no further.

Excellent Family Attorney
I hired Mr. Bowen and he instantly helped me get my case going , he consulted me the same day and filed the petition the same day. He has kept in constant communication with me and has taken my calls even on weekends. I find him to be professional in every way and quite knowledgable.
