  • review rating 5  GBM Law was a big help after my accident. I never felt alone while going through everything with my case. Sydney was amazing and would really go to bat for her clients. No matter what someone would be there to help. Like Jen whom also works in the office was quick to get back to me if I ever had any questions. I would highly recommend to anyone. Very professional and the perfect firm to have in your corner when it counts.

  • review rating 5  I was in a situation that required me to engage an attorney and Scott was recommended to me by a close friend that is a litigator and senior partner at a large law firm in town. First, I cannot say enough good things about Scott and his legal assistant, Sara. They were always on top of issues and very proactive. Their communications were excellent in timing and content. I found Scott to be extremely honest about the situation and even in retrospect, his advise was solid and completely on target. I also found that he has a tremendous amount of respect from his peers, and as importantly, the judiciary. They value his honesty and integrity, and desire to work productively with both sides. However, they also have full respect for his trial capabilities and willingness to go that route if needed. I found myself in the unfortunate position to need an attorney. If I, or my family or friends, ever found themselves in a similar position, Scott Bowman is the only person I would recommend. Absolutely outstanding!

  • review rating 5  It’s always worrisome when you need an attorney, and you hope you picked an honest and dedicated one that is there for your best interest, not their own. I researched several attorneys by checking the online reviews and decided on Scott Bowman because he had so many positive reviews. They were accurate – he is very good! He was there for me step by step, making sure I was not taken advantage of by the legal system. Scott and his legal assistant Sara were always prompt in responding to me and informing me of any process and progress in the case. I always felt they were totally honest, very helpful and knew exactly what to do! Just outstanding assistance and legal representation. Do not hesitate to contact Scott and Sara for assistance, truly amazing!!

  • review rating 5  GBM was recommended to me from a colleague and I am so very thankful that they did. Attorney Bowman and his paralegal Sara were awesome. They treated me with respectful and in a professional manner every step of the way. Although my case seemed to have its fair share of challenges, Scott gave me his honest opinions during the entire process and Sara was right there to help me through the process and my questions. I am very satisfied with the results and could not have had a better team to represent me during this difficult time. I appreciate all the work Scott and Sara did for me and would recommend them to anyone that needs a legal team that really cares about helping their clients.

  • review rating 5  I was critically injured almost two years ago. I chose Scott Bowman to represent me in my personal injury case based on his experience in handling similar cases to mine. I was very pleased with his responsiveness and handling of my case. I believe he represented my interest, which allowed me to focus on my recovery. Everything that was done was thoroughly explained and I was kept up to date on the progress. I am very pleased with the outcome and would highly recommend Scott and his firm to anyone looking for professional representation. I did work with other office staff and was also very pleased with Brian Gibbs and Sara Russell. I hope no one ever has to experience the type of injury I sustained, but if they do, I recommend that they choose GBM Law.
