In this episode, attorney Boe Bowen talks about how The Bowen Law Firm provides superior legal services to clients in the Houston area.
What mission matters to you?
Bowen says it’s always been his goal to develop a family-friendly law firm where attorneys have a genuine interest in clients’ cases and objectives. Noting that the team focuses on exceeding clients’ expectations while being strategic, creative, innovative, and upholding the highest standards of professional integrity and professional responsibility, he says they always keep an eye toward implementing solutions that help to keep families together.
How did you get started on the path of entrepreneurship?
The idea of helping other people fight their battles was intriguing to Bowen all the way back in middle school. As a kid, he laughs, he used to go trick-or-treating dressed as a lawyer. Inspired by the demeanor of a family friend who happened to be an attorney, he worked his way through law school and made his childhood dream come true.
When he started practicing law, he recalls taking every kind of case at first to pay the bills, but family law fascinated him the most. The primary reason behind choosing the path of entrepreneurship in his legal practice, he says, was to ensure he could spend time with his own family. Hence, he focused on creating a family-friendly law firm where the staff could have a perfect work-life balance while helping other families through their struggles.
Having served in the US Navy, Bowen was stationed in San Diego and spent time in Iraq as well. Active in community work, he’s been working with the largest self-run homeowners association in the country as a member for the past decade and as its vice-president for six years running, and he’s also the captain of the Community Emergency Response Team (CERT), a state-sponsored program.

What are some things families lack in estate planning?
“Most families do not (engage in) estate planning at all and assume they’d survive without it,” Bowen says. “Even senior citizens do not plan their wills, mostly because they want to avoid talking about their death.”
Drawing up a will or living will, however, can save your family from making difficult decisions while grieving the loss of a loved one. Moreover, he explains, the cost of a complete will and estate planning package can cost less if you handle it beforehand than it will if it falls to a family after your passing.
“Families dread the process,” he empathizes, “but all they have to do is call us, book an initial consultation, do the paperwork, and we take care of everything from there.”
