About Alice

Learn Alice’s areas of practice.

Professional
I have been practicing law in Fort Worth, Texas since 1980. During the first few years of my legal career, I practiced in several areas of law before finding my true calling – being an attorney that provides relief, reduces stress and saves homes – being a bankruptcy attorney.

 

Because I practiced in other areas before beginning my bankruptcy practice, I have well-rounded knowledge of areas of the law – family, probate, personal injury, criminal (both defense and prosecution) – that sometimes are affecting my bankruptcy clients. My practice has primarily been in bankruptcy since 1994. Since 2000, I have limited my practice to bankruptcy.

 

I have been rated with a BV Distinguished Rating from Martindale-Hubbell® - a lawyer who has been recognized by their peers for excellence in both legal ability and ethical practice.

 

Educational
1979 graduate of the University of Texas School of Law, Doctor of Jurisprudence. 1976 graduate of Southwestern University, Georgetown, Texas, Bachelor of Science degree in Economics.


1972 graduate of MacArthur High School, Irving, Texas

 

Personal
I was born in 1954, in Dallas, Texas. I am married. I have one biological child and two bonus children (children that came with my marriage to my husband). All of our children are adults.

 

I am a certified scuba diver. I have been certified since 1990 and I have more than 120 logged dives. In addition to my law practice and my family, scuba diving and traveling are my passions.

 

Emotional
I am kind and considerate. I am comfortable talking about subjects that are difficult to talk about.


I listen to my clients so that I can help them determine what their goals are for filing a bankruptcy. I recognize that bankruptcy is more than a financial decision, it is an emotional decision for many people.

Greatest Attorney Ever
Alice Bower Is The Best Attorney In The State Of Texas Bar None. I would hire her for help no matter what any one said about her because I have talked to her myself and I know that she is the BEST!

Wow! Is all I can say.
My experience with the vast majority of attorneys was just plain "Icky." Alice however, delivered amazing service from her small unassuming office. I entered her office fully expecting and willing to pay a hefty bill. Instead, she steered me towards an option that was literally thousands of dollars less. And for icing on the cake, she prepared a motion on the spot that I could file with the court. She's a caring woman and great attorney.

The best!
I hired Alice to help me with my financial issues and she was the best! Always returned my calls, answered all of my questions, etc! She is a very caring person. After my first consultation, I felt like a giant weight was lifted off my shoulders. I found her based on reviews from Yelp. I would hire her again and again if needed!

Best Man for the Job, Mrs. Bower!
I must have called 15-20 lawyers trying to get help with my lawsuit from Portfolio Recovery Associates. All wanted 3000-6000 to take my case, straight up Ch 7 bankruptcy(no property, no money, no child support owed, no previous filings and no inheritance). And most I never even got to ask questions, yet they did make time to tell me how much it was going to cost before I even told them anything about my case. I came across Mrs. Bower's page while looking for a lawyer so I took a chance and called. From that first call I actually felt like I had a say in the situation, but most of all she was so genuinely interested in my case by giving me the opportunity to speak my side. Upon meeting her at her office it was clear to me that she was the right wo-man for the job. She listened as I explained my predicament about the Portfolio Recovery lawsuit, answered questions that I had and offered me advice for my situation. Not once did she make me feel ashamed or worried regarding the reasons that brought me to the point of considering bankruptcy. Her demeanor was positively radiant while we went over the bankruptcy option providing me with as much information needed for me to decide. I left her office feeling like the weight of the world had been taken off me for a chance for me to continue my recovery from a stroke without being worried about a lawsuit from a creditor. I worked with Dan, office manager, in preparing all the paperwork needed to proceed with bankruptcy. He was so kind and helpful with me while gathering all my documentation pertaining to my case. Every step explained thoroughly and even provided me copies of all the paperwork. My bankruptcy hearing is over, the case is closing and I can have peace of mind that my stroke recovery will continue without the stress of possibly having another stroke from the lawsuit outcome. Do yourself a favor, just call Mrs. Bower and her staff to help you through whatever financial stage you are at now. She can provide you with the lifeline you may need to figure out where you want to be.

Intelligent and attentive to detail!!
I contacted Alice Bower with a tax lien issue, and she promptly responded to me within the same workday. She patiently spent time on the phone with me talking through the problem and was able to point out something that nobody else we had worked with had noticed. She completely resolved our issue and I’m SO happy I found her to reach out to. 10/10 would recommend this attorney to anybody dealing with a tax lien issue. Thank you, Alice!

Wonderful!!!
Alice Bower and her entire staff are absolutely the best! It is somewhat an embarresment to get yourself in such a financial mess. But Alice and her staff made me feel relaxed and most of all gave me peace in my life. I can sleep again. They are all very nice and friendly and do not talk down to you or make you feel stupid. I was given the time to fully explain my situation without being rushed and after hearing me out was advised it would be best to file chapter 13. The fees were reasonable and my case was started the very next morning... And when I went back to deliver some records they remembered me by name! I highly recommend Alice Bower!!! 5 stars...

Excellent Team Here
This team is absolutely brilliant. I had great fear and anxiety going into the process. They helped me understand what needed to be done and at every stage of the way and any humps we encountered, they were prepared to help and communicated well and clearly. I was able to emerge 3 years early with a clean discharge because of the work of Sean, Tina, Susan and Addi.

Best Lawyer because she is a great person!
Hands down the nicest most down to earth lawyer there is! I went in for a free consultation and she was more caring, attentive, helpful, and honest than every doctor Ive ever seen. She spent an hour with me. I didn't feel rushed at all and when I thought I was rambling off topic she encouraged me to continue, saying that knowing my whole situation was helful and important. In the end she advised me not to file bankruptsy at this time. I dont have any idea what her fees were but I would have paid any amount. Im a little sad I wont be seeing her again. I was just blown away with the entire process. From the phone call to Saturday appointment, I felt a casual and real warmth from everyone at her practice. Its rare these days to see such integrity and humanity in a person, especially a Lawyer.

Exceeded our Expectations!
Alice and her team were so kind to my husband & I. They explained the whole process during our chapter 7 & always returned our calls / emails promptly. They made us feel like we were not just a number & that we had nothing to be ashamed of. All of the staff was so nice during the whole process. Our case was not an easy one but we we got the discharge. Alice Bower is the best bankruptcy lawyer!

She's the best
I cannot recommend Alice and her staff highly enough. I am disabled and was unable to pay for my parent's funerals and had to declare bankruptcy. Alice and her staff steered me through the process and made it as painless as possible. I was totally satisfied with the services rendered.

ch13 Bk
Alice and her staff have been outstanding in our case, we have never gone throgh anything like this before and was overwhelmed to say the least, Susan Burtis has been very helpful she has answered every question we asked her and if she did not have the answer she made sure she found someone who did. I highly recommend Alice Bower and associates to any one that is going through financial problems and need some one to explain on how they can help.

Alice Bower is by far, the best attorney I have every used.
Alice Bower is the most knowledgable, trustworthy, and compassionate attorney I have every hired. She is the best BK attorney in the DFW metroplex, and I will always be grateful for her turning my life around. She understand, listens, and makes herself available to help when it's truly needed.
