My 3 year old daughter was in a horrible accident at a place of business and we were put in the situation of needing an attorney for the first time. Scott Bowen was referred to us and we are so happy that he was. He was able to guide us through what was unfamiliar territory and help in every aspect of our case.

He was always foremost concerned about my daughter and how she and our family were healing. He was organized, sensitive to our situation and the result was fantastic. We were able to settle for a sum that we are extremely pleased with. He made the stressful legal situation as straightforward as it could have been. I would highly recommend Scott.

I highly recommend Scott Bowen. It was my first time in a lawsuit. I was rear-ended and was referred to Scott by another attorney who respects him as one of the most experienced lawyers around. Scott patiently counseled me throughout the entire process on what to expect during depositions and how to be myself during IME’s.

The process has been rigorous, emotional and took almost 3 years before we reached settlement. It has been an emotional journey and I am very thankful that Scott has been consistently reliable as a sounding board, a counsel and a mediator dealing with insurance companies, medical providers and other lawyers.
The result matters: I received top dollar for my case according to others who work in the same industry.
Thank you, Scott

Scott Bowen is a great attorney. His office is great. His hard work will make a huge difference in my daughter’s life.  When she was 2 1/2 years old, she fell down the stairs at a babysitter’s house and had a brain injury.  Scott Bowen took the case and worked on it for 6 years.  He got my daughter into the best doctors in the Seattle area, brought a lawsuit and handled the litigation expertly and achieved the best settlement possible and got all of the insurance money available of 1 million dollars.  Trust has now been set up for my daughter in New York State where we live which will help and change her life.


“Scott Bowen has been a wonderful resource for me. I have been in two rear-end accidents that were not my fault, and both times, Scott has helped me to receive settlements that not only covered all my complex medical expenses, even when the insurance company was initially reluctant to do so, but also provided me with generous compensation for the stress of recovery itself. Scott is very easy to talk to, and exceptionally thorough. His staff is friendly and do a wonderful job as well. I highly recommend Scott Bowen.”


I am lucky that I hired Scott Bowen to be my attorney and he represented me.  I live in Port Angeles and am partially disabled and I get around in an electric wheelchair.  I was crossing a street and was hit by a truck.  The truck driver blamed me for the accident.  I ended up in the hospital for months.  I asked an attorney that I know for a referral and she recommended Scott Bowen.  He really took care of me.  He filed a lawsuit and pressed it hard.  All of the insurance companies involved paid their policy limits in record time.  Scott Bowen’s fees were fair and my settlement will give me financial security for the rest of my life.


I was in an accident that did not cause a lot of damage to my car but did result in injuries to my hand. My profession is in the legal field and I know that this type of accident can be very tricky to navigate. Instead of trying to work the case myself I decided to hire Scott to assist me with my case. The results could not have been better. He was able to negotiate a case with an initial offer of $1,000 and turn it into a final settlement of $225,000.


I feel really lucky I was referred to Scott by my dad. Scott and his staff did an awesome job and the process was shockingly smooth and easy at least from my end. I’m really thankful for all the hard work they put in and went through to get it closed out.
I will be sure to recommend Scott to anyone of my friends who might need legal assistance. Thank you so much!


Scott came recommended and has represented me on two different occasions for not-at-fault auto accidents. Both took their physical, mental, and emotional toll requiring a gamut of medical care, which Scott ensured I sought and received, as well as fair compensation. Between accidents, our dear son passed away. The effects of this didn’t escape Scott’s notice. His heartfelt compassion and integrity have played an integral role in my ongoing healing process, as important as any medical doctor. Scott Bowen is a true team player and legal professional in every sense of the word, and a friend. I have no hesitation in recommending the services of he and his reliable, friendly staff.


It is with great fondness and gratitude that we recall our time spent with Mr. Bowen. When my daughter was hit by another driver whose insurance company refused liability for, Scott came very highly recommended. He guided us and was the driving force behind the entire arbitration process, while ensuring my daughter received the appropriate medical care and compensation. Additionally, Scott represented my son, who was hit by a drunk driver and as a result suffered an unusual injury. Through Scott’s tenure, experience and guidance, he received extraordinary medical care. It is rare to meet a person who possesses such a personable manner, great integrity and fortitude. His role in my children’s auto accidents was integral to receiving proper medical care and compensation and we will always be thankful for his work.


I came to Scott for help in a no fault rear end injury accident. As a busy Microsoft Executive that was in a lot of pain I knew I needed a trusted advisor to guide me through the legal processes of dealing with insurance companies. As someone who is extremely busy I realized that my focus needed to be on healing and that Scott’s focus needed to be on ensuring that I could get the treatment I needed.


We are so grateful that we found Scott Bowen to help us after our son was injured. The driver at fault was underinsured, so the case was complicated by having to deal with the other insurance company as well as with our own insurance. Thanks to Scott, our son received the full amount of the driver-at-fault’s policy limit and a healthy additional sum through our own insurance company’s underinsured motorist coverage that it takes a great lawyer to collect. Scott is a great guy who treated our son like he’d known him all his life, which made the process so much more comfortable. He kept us informed at every step and fought hard for our son’s benefit. Nobody can undo a long-term injury, but at least those two settlements gave our son the money to help pay for college. Thank you, Scott.

P.S. Surprisingly, we learned of Scott from our own insurance agent, who whispered to us how impressed she had been with his handling of her daughter’s injury case. Hope we can pass it forward!


I was just thinking about you this morning and wanted to send a quck email about your representation for my accident case.

I was very happy to have had you as my Attorney during the whole process from start to finish. Scott very much showed a genuine interest in my well being and concern to the best recovery possible after my injury. I felt more like a friend that he cared about than just an attorney looking for the monetary payment. I was treated extremely well and would in the future call Scott for any of my legal consultation needs.
