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. I will continue to use Mr. Bowman and his team of attorneys and legal staff for many years to come.


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.
