How did your firm decide on the primary area of practice(s)?

My family has always been part of the working class. My parents, uncles and aunts, and grandparents worked in factories, coal mines, manufacturing facilities, and in the construction industry. They were all hard workers who gave more than they received. Many in my family were hurt on-the-job or suffered disabilities at some point or another.

I note this because I think it is important for any person considering retaining me to know that I personally know what it's like to experience disability, to deal with the delays in bureaucracy, and how survival is so difficult while trying to establish a claim. For example, my parents, both of them, had the misfortune of getting sick before they could retire from their jobs. My father became disabled when I was getting ready to go to college, and the years that he couldn't work were rough. My mother became disabled after I had been practicing law.

Both of my parents pursued disability claims that were initially wrongfully denied. Both had to wait years under the lengthy Social Security hearing appeals process before both got their hearings. Both ultimately were approved, though my father's case took more than five years after filing. My mother's case, which was quite complex, was approved much quicker, although it was a fight to the finish.

What experience or education distinguishes your lawyers from others?

You will rarely if ever speak with my assistant or get ignored. You primarily will speak with me throughout your case. That noted, I view all new disability client cases as a collaborative effort between my office and the client. If during the course of your case I believe additional evidence needs developing concerning one or more medical problems that impacts the clients ability to work, I will suggest the appropriate doctors and medical tests that are important to establish a successful claim result.

Jonathan Bowman

Bowman Law Office

It has been a long journey to land here in Middle Tennessee. My first work as an attorney goes back to 1996, when I was hired out of law school to perform workers' compensation claims legal defense for the State of West Virginia through the Attorney General's office for the State of West Virginia.

A year later, I left that position to return to Wheeling, West Virginia upon being hired by a small boutique law firm, Seibert and Kasserman, to assist in workers' compensation claims administration on behalf of injured workers and to develop the firm's Social Security practice.

After ten years with the firm helping injured workers and the disabled, I formed a partnership with my law partner at Seibert and Kasserman who introduced me to my wife.

Two years later, Bowman Law Office was created to carry on the work of helping the injured and disabled.

Being drawn to the South and also to Nashville in particular, several years ago my wife and I decided to make the move to Tennessee. After becoming licensed to practice law in Tennessee in June 2014, my wife and I, along with my three wonderful children, moved to Lebanon and became Tennesseans in Wilson County, with Bowman Law Office relocating to Lebanon, Tennessee around the same time.

Bowman Law Offices has been serving clients throughout the eastern part of the United States for more than two decades, with primarily clients from Middle Tennessee since our move.

Bowman Law Office is continued its mission of helping the injured and disabled since arriving here in Middle Tennessee.

We welcome the opportunity to serve you.
