Mr. Bowerbank is A knowledgeable, intense force for justice. Assertive and proactive, responsive and result oriented comes to mind when describing John. He will do what it takes to avoid A lawsuit yet if challenged he will dominate, no doubt.

John Bowerbank delivers exceptional results!
I cannot praise John enough! I retained him for counsel regarding an HOA dispute that was halting the sale of one of my properties. I contacted him on Friday and he delivered results on Monday, obviously in my favor. He is responsive, understanding and will not stand down until his clients gets the results they need. I highly recommend John Bowerbank and will continue to use his services for any future transactions, when needed.

Exceptional Lawyer
A business associate referred me to utilize John Bowerbank to help me with a sudden legal matter that required an experienced attorney. Mr. Bowerbank is a true professional & was very empathetic to my personal situation. From our initial conversation, I felt very confident in his ability to deliver a positive outcome on my behalf. He was very responsive to my many phone calls and emails. He is cost effective, yet extremely zealous in litigating on a clients behalf. Fortunately, I've only needed his services a couple of times.

Excellent representation, top-notch attorney!
Mr. John Bowerbank represented me in a very complicated civil case and from the beginning to the very end, he remained a steadfast and consummate professional . Mr. Bowerbank brings to the table a level of confidence and expertise that will immediately put you at ease as a client. He is extremely efficient and attentive as all of my questions or concerns were always addressed in a timely manner. That said, Mr. Bowerbank was able to obtain an immediate dismissal of the entire case. In addition, he secured a judgment where the opposing side was ordered to reimburse 100% of all attorney fees and costs incurred as the prevailing party.
