Informative and reasonable
Doug is very knowledgeable, responsive, and has a great demeanor that helped me through a difficult situation. Although I hope my friends or family don't need a divorce attorney, I would definitely recommend Doug.

Divorce
Doug did an excellent job from start to finish. He was easy to get a hold of and responded to phone calls and e-mails in in a very reasonable amount of time. I would absolutely use Doug again for my lawyer for future legal issues. He comes highly recommended.

Job Well Done!
Doug, was very professional handling my Divorce. I was recommended to contact Doug after I spoke with a valued friend of mine about how my situation was causing anxiety and depression levels were elevated not only for my divorce, but also due to a very amateur lawyer that carelessly handled my case for while, before Doug took over my case. He is a "Good Guy" my friend told me about Doug, He was right, not only He's a good guy, He is a very professional lawyer, He worked hard for me and He payed attention to details. I'm a Veteran and I would strongly recommend this good guy to all my veteran friends. We sailors don't stir each other in the wrong direction. Job Well Done Doug, Thank You.

He did a great job handling my divorce, he gave me very good advice before he even took my case and then handled the whole case very well. He was always great about staying in contact and got me the results I wanted, at a very reasonable price too

child support and custody case
Doug was very tentative to what I desired as an outcome for our case and saw to it that we hit as close to that goal as possible within the guidelines of the law.

Great Experience!
Mr. Bowen is a kind, competent lawyer. I came to him with a speeding ticket I had, and I was worried about having to go to driving school. Mr. Bowen helped me get my ticket amended, and the process was quick and easy. I didn't need to go to driving school. I recommend him to everyone I know.
