Anne-Marie L. Bowen graduated with honors from the Florida State University, College of Law in 1987 earning her Juris Doctor degree. She also graduated from the FSU College of Business with a Bachelor of Science degree in Finance in 1984. She was a litigation attorney at a small law firm in Orlando and at the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation working in the areas of Creditor's Rights and Bankruptcy and Litigation.
Ms. Bowen opened her own law firm in 1994 and has concentrated her practice in helping people in financial distress ever since. She finds that her background in first representing banks and creditors helps her in now representing only Debtors, or people that owe money. She knows what the other side is looking for.
Attorney Bowen listens to her clients and understands their problems. She tries to find alternatives to filing bankruptcy, in case it is not necessary or advisable. Ms. Bowen offers personal attention to each client, and thoroughly explains all options available.
"I'm grateful that I can help people through this very difficult time in their lives and offer them hope for their future."
