After graduating from Baylor Law School in 1979, Laura Fowler began her career as a Navy JAGC chasing saboteurs and scoundrels through exotic ports in East Asia and the Western Pacific. Since returning to Texas in 1983, she has confined herself to avenging and defending the rights of many wonderful people and institutions in the state and federal courts of Texas. Her greatest calling, however, is to help her clients design ways to never see the inside of a courtroom. She is the founder and owner of The Fowler Law Firm P.C., located in both Austin and Georgetown, Texas, with twenty (20) attorneys and nine (9) support staff who daily serve the legal needs of a large and delightful group of clients.
THE FOWLER LAW FIRM P.C. is the 2010 winner of the Austin Chamber of Commerce Time Warner Cable Education Award for its gifts to education, a finalist for the 2011 Austin Chamber of Commerce Community Relations Award, the recipient of the 2010 State Bar of Texas W. Frank Newton Award for outstanding pro bono legal services and designated a Top Corporate Philanthropist by the Austin Business Journal in 2009, 2010, and 2011.
