Brent Bowyer: Co-Owner and Partner ADAM, Southeastern Michigan
Brent Bowyer is a co-owner and partner at ADAM. He faced divorce head-on at a very young age when at 8 years old his parents divorced. As a child, he didn't understand the impact a divorce would have on his suddenly changing life. His father, a lawyer and alcoholic, was gone, and his older sister no longer lived in the same house. It felt like everyone was leaving, and the people closest to him had failed him. He understands now that divorce can feel this way for his clients. There is an overwhelming sense of confusion, lack of direction and lack of trust for the adults as well as the children involved.
"At ADAM, the experience from our personal lives and our work as family law attorneys helps us to better understand what our clients are facing every day. It is easy to end up feeling very alone, like everything is stacked against you. We try to assure our clients they do not have to feel this way and guide them with a strategy and direction to put their lives back together."
In his personal time, Brent enjoys traveling to northern Michigan and spending time with his totally awesome wife, two daughters and his dog, Buddy. Brent is a lousy golfer, but loves the outdoors and the camaraderie of golf. He likes to play guitar and enjoys simple things like driving his Jeep Wrangler. "The world could be a better place if we would all wave to each other like Jeep Wrangler owners do." Brent also loves snorkeling in the Caribbean and boating on lakes, but gets motion sickness easily.
Brent has a B.B.A. from Western Michigan University and a law degree from The John Marshall Law School in Chicago. "There is nothing more satisfying than helping a client and seeing how happy they can be as a result of the work we do here at ADAM." His life's work is helping men through divorce and family law related issues.
