    I chose Larry after finding him to be the most positively referenced Lawyer in Fairfax County for child custody cases. He and his staff proved to be a crucial asset in what quickly became complicated custody proceedings.{para}He is experienced, smart, and is able to keep his head above the fray, never losing site of the optimal landing.{para}In my case, I have no doubt his help made all the difference.{para}I cannot recommend him enough, and will certainly look to Larry for all future custody legal matters

    I had the pleasure of meeting Valerie during a complicated custody battle in at the request of my attorney, Larry Bowen. Valerie proved to shape a crucial perspective in a formal brief she crafted for the hearing. She brought clear focus to the issues, as well as vital precedents.{para}Her research proved invaluable, and created an accessible reference point helping to shape much of the dialogue.{para}I found her to be exceptionally perceptive, and interested in understanding the big picture.

    Larry came highly recommended to me, and I would also highly recommend Larry to anyone going through a situation similar to mine. I shared my situation with Larry very clearly. I was divorcing and I wanted as much time with my son as possible. I understood already, as a father, that the chance for full custody of my son in this state is very unlikely. Larry provided clear and unfiltered feedback and counsel, based on my desires, was upfront with feedback, and tenacious in representing me.

    I was recommended to Larry Bowen by a friend of mine after several disappointing encounters with other disreputable attorneys. One in particular was paid several thousands of dollars by me and did absolutely nothing except tell me they couldn't help because my ex spouse lived out of state. After meeting Larry Bowen I knew I was finally going to get the help I needed. After much hard work on Larry's part we were able to recover what I was owed! I highly recommend Lawrence Bowen!

    This law firm could not ever get documents correct on the first time. Consistently amounts of money, information, details of agreement would be wrong or completely unrelated to my case! Thereby costing me extra money each time to amend the documents. I specifically dealt with Valerie Hughes and her paralegal. It also took them a while to finalize any paperwork. When it was accurate, it was good work, which is why I gave them a 3.

    This firm consistently got information wrong, amounts of money incorrect and details wrong when drafting and sending documents to opposing counsel. At times, the information was not even related to my case! This cost me extra money because of the changes that had to be made. Communication was not good and was never clearly understood nor double checked in order to ensure accurate understanding. However, after several drafts, they were accurate; thus I gave them a 3.

    Ms. Hughes is a tenacious and highly principled advocate who treats other counsel with professionalism and courtesy. Knowledgeable about her field of practice, she readily shares her knowledge and enthusiasm with the local bar and less experienced lawyers. She is a talented writer, whose documents are clear and reflect her insight and her practical ability to solve clients' conflicts. She exudes energy, good judgment, enthusiasm, ethical standards in and out of court.
