    “Great Lawyer”
    I was charged with a huge speeding ticket 87/45, Troy got the case dismissed! Thanks Mr. Bowlin.

    A few years ago I was addicted to drugs. My addiction led me to steal and eventually I caught a few criminal charges. Troy Bowlin took my case. I spent time in jail for a little while as my bond was revoked. Troy immediately started working on getting me released and helping me through the release process. Troy was finally able to get me released to a 45-day rehab facility versus spending more time in jail. The rehab was a wonderful experience on my road to sobriety. Once I left rehab, the court appearances began. Troy was always present and on time. He would even be there early to discuss with me what would probably happen before court began. This was very comforting because when you are facing felony charges, court is very nerve-wracking. Troy was able to get me two years unsupervised probation. Based on the charges I had incurred this was short of a miracle. The two years gave me time to evaluate my life and become clean and sober. After the two years, Troy filed for judicial diversion. Once this was done, I have absolutely no charges on my record today. From where I started to where I ended up is all because of Troy's hard work. I find myself very lucky to have been blessed with this kind of caliber of lawyer. If it wasn't for Troy I would not be starting Nursing School in the fall. My future is bright now and my path is clear. If it was not for Troy I would not be as successful as I am now.

    I will never forget the time Mr. Bowlin came to visit me in jail on a Sunday. It was Fathers day and he was the first one to wish me Happy Fathers Day. Mr. Bowlin does not know how much that meant.
