Contractor Lawsuit
I hired Bruce to help me with a contractor dispute during home remodeling. The contractor filed suit to collect retainage. The case wound up going to trial in Bruce did an excellent job. We prevailed on our counterclaim and the contractor wound up paying. I strongly recommend Mr. Bowman he is very efficient and thorough.

A Respected Professional That Gets Results
Bruce has represented us in various capacities for 20 plus years. We are an old family company involved in many different investments including oil and gas exploration and production. We have a lot of very different legal needs. Bruce’s firm has attorneys with various areas of specialty and has been able to meet all of our needs. Several years ago, we were involved in a very complex matter that included bankruptcy, corporate reorganization, appeals in District and Applet Courts, settlement negotiations, etc. Bruce spearheaded our legal effort in which we prevailed after a long fight. We are very pleased with the final result. We would highly recommend Bruce and his firm.
