About me

Greg Bowes has been practicing law since 1985, and has experience in both state and federal court, including both civil and criminal cases. He has represented persons accused of crime, victims of crime and negligence, and has served on the appellate panel of the Marion County Public Defender Agency for nine years.

In 2004, he taught legal research and writing as an Adjunct Professor at the Indiana University School of Law – Indianapolis. He has presented at 13 Continuing Legal Education seminars to train other attorneys.

Greg has been a soccer referee since 1983. He has officiated more than 2,500 youth, high school, adult amateur, college, and professional soccer matches. From 1998 to 2000, he served the United States Soccer Federation (USSF) as a National Referee, an achievement earned by fewer than 200 of the approximately 110,000 referees affiliated with the USSF, which qualifies the referee to officiate professional and international matches. He has also served the USSF as a local administrator, instructor and assessor.

Greg has volunteered in his community as a member of the board of directors of seven not-for-profit organizations. He has committed over 14 years of service to these organizations.
