Personal Statement

I dedicate my professional practice to helping individuals and families through difficult times. When someone is hurt because of someone else’s failure to abide by society’s safety rules, the person who did follow the rules should not bear the burden placed upon them.

My daughter and I had the pleasure of working with Matt, Scott & Talena. I knew going into this process that we had a choice, and I’m so glad we went with GB & this team. Through the entire process, which was lengthy, we were involved & informed every step of the way. They made us feel like family, the care & passion they bring to the table is genuine. They also stayed honest, we were never told anything that wasn’t up front. I appreciate you all more than you. Thank you a hundred times over!

I never knew dealing with a Law firm regarding a whiplash car accident could be such a positive experience. From the first phone conversation I had with Scott Bowman to the many emails and phone calls from his uber competent and friendly staff, to finishing the case up with Scott via email, these guys blew me away. The other insurance company drug their feet so long I had given up on the case. But not Scott and GB Law. They kept working, fighting, negotiating, with insurance companies, hospitals, etc. on my behalf, all I had to do was provide minimal factual information, sign a couple of forms and nothing else. Oh and I will have to sign the very fair compensation check that Scott won for me! Big City Lawyers usually scare the hell out of me. Not this law firm. I give my highest recommendation and only recommendation I have ever written a law firm to Scott Bowman and all of the people at GMB Law. Ya'll turned a painful and bad situation into the best possible outcome, and I never had to pay a thing! Thank you all SO much and God Bless!

Let me start off by saying, I normally do not leave google reviews. Unfortunately, after my injury I was in the need of a good Lawyer. So, I did like most people in need, and google for Lawyers in my area. All I could do is hope for whatever Law Office I selected would be a good one. Well, I got way more than what I could ever hope for. After reaching out to GB Law office, I started working with Mr. Bowman and Ms. Russell immediately. Mr. Bowman is one of the Attorneys here at GB Law with many years of experience. Along with the help Ms. Russell, I received a substantial level of guidance and help for my well-being as I recovered and also for my case. Even the staff here is tremendously nice and polite. Therefore, this is the reason for my review. I hope if anyone is looking for a great Law Office that will do right by you and your case look no further. GB Law is the right choice!

After consulting with a few lawyers, we chose Scott Bowman to represent me two days after my automobile accident. We met with Scott and Sarah immediately after speaking on the phone where they stayed (after hours) to thoroughly explain the entire process to me and my husband. They told me that all I need to focus on is my recovery and let them handle the rest. They have for sure exceeded my expectations during this process. They're professional yet still personable and very quick to answer my questions and respond to my emails. My own insurance company tried to lowball the total loss on my vehicle, and Scott didn't hesitate to go after them to get me the full value of my car in a way only a lawyer can. I am still recovering, but I can rest easy knowing that I have Scott and Sarah fighting in my corner. I HIGHLY recommend this law firm if you're seeking personal injury representation. Thank you Scott and Sarah for everything! It is certainly a pleasure working with you both.

I came to GB Law after a negligent driver injured me, resulting in surgery. I spoke with Scott at his office, and he was confident, determined, knowledgeable, and professional. One of the most significant factors that stuck out to me that differed from other lawyers I had spoken to was his “no bullshit” attitude regarding the insurance company. When looking for a lawyer to have your back and represent you, it is crucial to find one to go in and fight for what you deserve. Scott is not a passive lawyer willing to allow the insurance company to take advantage of you. He is assertive, firm, and experienced. He will absolutely win your case and reach the settlement that you deserve.

Working with GB Law was the smartest move I could have made for my family and I. Very professional and courteous with a personal touch was very calming and I knew that I was in good hands. Scott Bowman and his team at GB were able to get me an extremely fair settlement. I was amazed at how much work they did for me and how little I had to contribute during the entire process. I would highly recommend GB Law if you need their legal services.
