Mr. Bowden is a person not just an attorney
Mr. Bowden is a person not just an attorney. He is very knowledgeable, and knows his stuff. I have had bad experiences with attorney in the past on different issues and never seemed to turn out as planned. They would talk hell fire, and brimstone until court time then I felt like deals were made. Mr. Bowden has put my attitude towards attorney in a different direction. I have been treated like a person everything he said he was gonna do he did. No backroom deals straight up and backed up his every word. I really felt like he was in my court, and he proved true to his word I wouvery highly recommend him.
