This lawyer was disciplined by a state licensing authority.
This sanction means the attorney lost his or her license to practice law for a period of time. The attorney typically returns to practicing law when the suspension expires.
John’s comment: “This was a year long suspension that began in 2005 due in large part to my failure to file income tax returns. It was in the midst of a contentious divorce. I have since resolved this matter, raised my children successfully, and I am happily remarried.”

After struggling for two years in modification hell I sought help and had my loan and note reviewed by an examiner. Several issues (some severe) were found so he recommended John Bowles at Bowles/Fernandez Law Firm. Throughout my process with the banks, I kept notes, paperwork and records of calls (some recorded) so things were up to speed pretty quickly. I even knew when I had been turned over to the "Foreclosure Imminent Team" and that forced my hand to seek legal council due to their unscrupulous tactics. Though I felt overwhelmed by now, John was able to put together a game plan and start the process of fighting back. He knew I was VERY upset with the banks and their processes, but he was able to show a way forward. Even through some rough spots, John and his team were able to push through. After a year of back and forth, an offer was made that allowed me to keep my home that is a part of my family and my livelihood. As I write and post this positive review (and recommended them to others), I am making my payments and current on my home. Thank you John, Jeff and Rick!

John has been so helpful and professional handling a difficult situation I experienced with a loan servicing company for our home. John was referred to me from a trusted business professional to protect and represent me in what is right. John is extremely knowledgable and diligently has served with the highest integrity. I absolutely respect John and know he expects fairness and demands the accuracy of the law for his clients. I have been confident with his representation and felt a sense of relief, especially in the difficult position my family has been agonizing through due to the devastating home market values and the improper treatment from the loan servicing company. The banks and loan servicing companies have unfortunately made many unethical decisions and have not upheld proper law. I discovered I am among many taken advantage of while trying to work directly with the loan servicing company to establish a reasonable and fair resolution. I trusted the loan servicing company and provided all they requested for an extensive period of time, but unfortunately they proved to be unethical and dishonest. I needed help. John Bowles has continually made great progress in working to restore what we respectfully earned and what we are honestly entitled to by law. John has gone above and beyond to represent us. The respect and high regard he has demonstrated towards myself and my family is admirable. He has gained my sincere gratitude.

Turning to litigation is always the last resort for us. Only after trying repeatedly to work with the parties involved, and having been repeatedly lied to, manipulated, and stressed out about our future, we turned to John for help. John made sure the case was a valid one before we retained him. Once it was determined that we were justified in our belief that a fraud had been committed against us, he took our case. Since then, he and his team won a major victory, putting the scoundrels back on their heels, and giving us a foundation of a legal decision to base our claims on. We may have further litigation to go in the future but by having John Bowles on our side we are confident in the final results to come.

John is the kind of lawyer you want to hire to be your lawyer. He is personable and truly cares about his clients and diligently works to get the best results possible for them. John is extremely knowledgeable about foreclosure defense and his other areas of practice and he is not afraid to take on the tough challenging cases. I wholeheartedly endorse John Bowles.
