What a great Lawyer and Firm
Where does one begin to write a review for a Law Firm? First of all the one would hope that things would never require a lawyer, but as we all know, that is not the case. So with that in mind, one would hope to find a lawyer that is passionate about their profession, dedicated to their clients, tactful, smart, and as unfortunately the process can be adversarial at times, someone that knows how to handle themselves in the courtroom. Those are the exact qualities that the Lawyers involved with Bowman and Associates have. I have been lucky enough to have Robert Bowman represent me and I must say how fortunate I feel. When you are going into a courtroom, by the nature of the process, you can never be 100% sure of anything, but I feel and do know, that if I am walking in with Robert, or any of the attorneys associated with his firm, that I am walking in prepared and with one of the Best Attorneys around. They are accessible, responsive, and so great about helping you understand whatever process is going on. So again, I hope you never have to have an attorney represent you, but I also know that if you need one, go with Bowman and Associates and get the best.

Custody and business legal advice
I have used Bowman and Associates for a number of issues including custody, business legal advice and DUI. Robert Bowman is an excellent, caring attorney. He takes the long view on custody and business issues, provides sound advice, and works tirelessly on my behalf. David Foos brings a wealth of experience and got me a fair, better-than-expected result in my DUI case. Bowman and Associates have a reasonable fee schedule and, compared to other law offices, you get much more than you pay for with them. I will continue to use Mr. Bowman and his team of attorneys and legal staff for many years to come.

I'm glad that I found him!!!!!
Fantastic! Robert has been an incredible help during a very stressful, constant custody battle. He’s always been there to answer the phone and provide advice, drastically lowering my stress level and anxiety. He was right, it takes a little time, but our court arrangement is finally both in the best interest of my son and fair to me.
