Veterans Are Always Welcome
According the Austin Business Journal’s annual book of lists, The Fowler Law Firm is the largest veteran owned law firm in Central Texas. Managing shareholder, Laura Fowler began her career as a very green Lieutenant Junior Grade in the US Navy Judge Advocate General’s Corp aboard the warship USS Guadalcanal in 1980. Her military experience made her a fierce patriot who loves her country and would do anything to uphold the sanctity of the United States Constitution for the opportunities afforded our citizens – which are unlike any other in the world.
We believe strongly in supporting our veteran population. Military service is difficult, demanding, and dangerous. But returning to civilian life also poses challenges for the women and men who have served in the armed forces. According to a Pew Research Center survey, veterans who served since September 11, 2001 have a more difficult time readjusting to civilian life. This creates many complex legal challenges for Texas Veterans and their families – including those related to military benefits, federal and state public benefits and disability benefits. Common legal issues include family, employment and housing law, consumer protection, bankruptcy, probate expunction and Military discharge upgrades.
Veterans are always welcome at The Fowler Law Firm. Our commitment is to do all we can to satisfy your legal needs, or refer to you quality resources and individuals who can.
