Best Phone call we ever made
A friend recommended Scott who was handling her accident claim after expressing my frustrations to her. We also had a accident and were suffering from so much pain but the insurance wouldn't help us and we didn't know where to turn. From the first time we met with him he was amazing. He told us even if we didn't hire him he still wanted us to get us in contact with Doctors that were specific to our needed care. We felt like we were talking to a dear friend every time we spoke. He helped my family not only get the medical attention we needed but walked us thru all the processes. We felt like Scott and his firm were in our corner and took so much of the stress of the financial situation off our shoulders. I really feel that if we never called him we would have been suffering our whole lives with pain and financial hardship. He was able to get us the maximum allowed from the insurance and got all our medical expenses covered too.

Knowledgeable, Professional, Results
Mr. Scott Bowen was recommended to us through a friend’s business lawyer. Upon reaching out, Scott got right back to us and consulted us on what was to come. This was a higher profile case than the average accident. He was sensitive to my partners situation. Under the circumstances I can imagine it made it more complicated on his end, which he handled with grace. The process which Scott represented her was top notch. I would highly recommend Scott and in fact will do so for anyone needing representation in his field.

An Experienced Lawyer with Great Results
I highly recommend Scott Bowen. It was my first time in a lawsuit. I was rear-ended and was referred to Scott by another attorney who respects him as one of the most experienced lawyers around. Scott patiently counseled me throughout the entire process on what to expect during depositions and how to be myself during IME's. The process has . been rigorous, emotional and took almost 3 years before we reached settlement. It has been an emotional journey and I am very thankful that Scott has been consistently reliable as a sounding board, a counsel and a mediator dealing with insurance companies, medical providers and other lawyers. The result matters: I received top dollar for my case according to others who work in the same industry. Thank you, Scott.

Rear-end collision
As a young married couple, pregnant with our first child and involved in a rear-end accident, we weren't sure where to turn for legal advice and were fortuantly referred to Scott Bowen. Scott represented us in an injury case that was very clear cut but took over a year and a half to settle. He was patient and refused to let the insurance company bully us into a low ball offer. Scott's paralegal staff were so help with scheduleding issues as we moved back to Montana while working on our case. Scott was honest and gave his professional opinion when we were put in a position to either settle or litigate. We decided to settle and are so glad we did. The process from start to finish was exceptional, communication was clear, and we knew that the well-organized staff had our best interests in mind.

Scott Bowen represented me in 2014-15 for a personal injury case for second and third degree burns sustained during a pedicure paraffin waxing. Throughout the year of focusing on my case, Scott was professional and responsive at all times. Phone calls were returned and emails responded to promptly and professionally, not only by Scott, but also by his legal team. Scott took the time out to provide in-depth explanations about the process for the lawsuit including the legal ramifications and laws in Washington state, the complexities of personal injury insurance, the pros and cons of arbitration. At all times, my best interest and the outcome of the case was his singular focus. One of the top benefits of having Scott represent me was his congenial, personable and sincere manner. I wasn't just a case to him--I was a real person who had experienced an injury and trauma. He was compassionate and truly cared about me. I would not hesitate to recommend Scott Bowen to any family, friends or colleagues. While personal injury cases are not a picnic, Scott helped ease the anxiety and stress, and I always looked forward to talking to him. It was a first-rate experience.

great experience
Scott was amazing, very understanding, very communicative and prompt. I would highly recommend Scott and in fact I did with a co-worker who also had a great experience. He does what he says he is going to do and I believe that he kept it real during the ordeal which is great for me, again I would highly recommend Scott.

Rear End Collision
Hi, Scott Bowen handled my rear end collision case. My car was totaled by another driver. I suffered severe whip lash which damaged my neck and upper back. Physical therapy, massage, chiropractic care, and spinal injections were prescribed for my recovery. My case was resolved through a mitigation and resulted in a settlement of $60,000.00. i would highly recommend Scott Bowen and his team for numerous reasons. Professional, caring and efficient! Thanks!

Words Can not Express- Great Service
I was recommended to Scott by my God daughter who works with a friend of Scott's. At the first visit, I knew I would be very happy with Scott Bowen representing me. He was caring, thoughtful and kind. I was involved in a car accident in 2014 and I was in a lot of pain. We spoke for over an hour, he was so friendly. I knew Scott would look out for my best interest and he did just that. As the case went on I met Megan and Diane, they both took very good care of me as well, answering my many questions and listening to me vent. Scott even helped answer a few questions I had about another incident that involved daughter and drafted a letter in response to her situation and cleared that up for me. (What a guy, Thank you for that) When it was time to settle, we met with the other parties involved, they wanted to gang up on my but Scott would not let them, he stepped in every time, and for that, I'm truly grateful. I was pleased with my settlement and I will recommend Scott Bowen to all my family and friends when in need. I told Scott he would be my lawyer for life. Thank you!!!!! Scott, Diane and Megan. 5 star is not enough I give Scott...........100 stars.

A Valued Relationship
Scott has been my family's legal council for our personal injury needs for more than 10 years. Our two sons, now college age, trust Scott 's Sage advice, as well as his careful explanation of options and procedure for a successful claim. I recommend Scott if you would like a relationship with an attorney who takes time to get acquainted with you, your situation and effectively fights for you to receive the compensation you deserve!

"An Absolute Expert"
Scott is extremely knowledgeable in his line of work. He has won both of my car accident cases and will not stop until he gets the outcome that he wants. He will work with you side by side and make sure your comfortable throughout the process. I highly recommend Scott to anyone who is seeking justice with a personal injury claim. He will spend considerable time with you and explained the entire process. I am so fortunate that I have an attorney to lean on when tough times get rough.Thank you so much Scott!

Above and Beyond!
We had a rather complex case involving 3 vehicles. Scott was very attentive and made sure our needs were met. He took his time and genuinely cared about what we were going through. He helped us through the entire process and went to great lengths to get things settled.

Beware
Many errors in dealing with my case. I had to find out the details of the case myself. When it came to settlement, "his associate" miscalculated the settlement which I would've received less money, these miscalculations happened repeatedly. Please be smart and double check and have someone take a look at your documents for accuracy!

Personal injury Attorney | Sep 15
Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
"I am an attorney in Bellevue, Washington and I have known Scott Bowen for 30 years. My endorsement is based on professional and personal experience. A number of years ago, my son was very seriously hurt in an accident which was not his fault. I did not hesitate to refer him to Scott, who secured a favorable settlement. Scott treated my son with skill, sensitivity and compassion. Scott understands that his clients are not just legal cases. They are living, breathing human beings who are suffering physically and emotionally and who are worthy of his respect. This is not an act. Scott truly cares. I would (and have) unhesitatingly referred personal injury clients to Scott because I know they will be good hands."
Personal injury Attorney | Sep 02
Relationship: Opposing Counsel on matter
"I have had several cases against Scott over the years and am always impressed by his professionalism, fairness and tenacity on behalf of his clients. He gets top dollar for his clients and approaches each case with his client's best interest in mind."
Personal injury Attorney | Jan 10
Relationship: Worked together on matter
"I was Scott Bowen's paralegal for over 8 years before I became an attorney myself. Since then, we have worked together on a few cases. Scott is a very good lawyer who produces solid results. He is personable and approachable. Clients like him and he works well with opposing counsel, which makes litigation easier on his clients. If I ever need to hire a personal injury attorney myself, Scott's the attorney I'd pick without any question or hesitation."

"I have known Scott Bowen since we were in law school together in 1977. I have been his law partner since 1985. Scott is always concerned with the well-being of his clients and puts his clients first. He is ethical, trustworthy and is well-respected by fellow attorneys and insurance adjusters. He works hard to achieve maximum results for his clients. When I had a personal injury case myself, I chose Scott to be my lawyer."
