Laci Bowman represents clients in all aspects of family law, including divorce, modification proceedings, premarital and post marital property agreements, suits affecting parent-child relationship, and enforcement issues.
Board Certified in Family Law by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization since 2013, Ms. Bowman has extensive experience negotiating difficult settlement agreements or, when appropriate, taking a case through trial. She has tried multiple jury trials, bench trials, and arbitrations involving property and children disputes, and provides clients the ability to weigh the risks and rewards of taking a case to trial or reaching a settlement.
Trained as a collaborative attorney, Ms. Bowman offers clients the option of addressing their family law needs outside of the courtroom through confidential settlement proceedings. She co-founded, and served as President of, the Collaborative Law Professionals of North Texas, a collaborative law practice group. Ms. Bowman understands that, as a counselor, part of her job is to have the tools and knowledge available to help their clients address their specific goals and interests in the most efficient and effective manner possible. The Collaborative Law Professionals of North Texas has since merged into Collaborative Law Dallas, a group of skilled lawyers, mental health professionals, and financial professionals, where Ms. Bowman remains deeply involved to this day.
Prior to devoting her practice to family law, Ms. Bowman represented clients in complex high stakes commercial litigation issues in both Federal and State Court. That experience helps her provide insight and potential solutions to her clients with regard to the complex property division issues that often arise in family law disputes.
Reflecting the professional excellence she’s become known for, Ms. Bowman has been chosen among D Magazine’s Best Lawyers in Dallas Under 40, named nine times to Thomson Reuters’ Texas Rising Stars, honoring the most highly regarded young attorneys in the state, and has been selected to Thomson Reuters’ list of the Texas Up and Coming 100 Texas Rising Stars and the Up and Coming 50 Texas Women Rising Stars, honoring the top 100 young lawyers and top 50 young female lawyers among the ranks of Texas Rising Stars.
Ms. Bowman graduated from The University of Texas at Austin in 2004, with a B.S. in Communications Studies with Honors and a B.A. in Government with Honors, and from Baylor University School of Law in 2009. She is licensed to practice in the State of Texas, as well as the United States districts courts for the Northern and Eastern districts of Texas.
