Professional Biography:
Mr. Bowman began his legal career in 1994 with a law firm in Southwest Virginia during his second year of law school, and joined that firm upon graduating from law school. During his time there, he represented disabled clients in obtaining benefits from the Social Security Administration and the Veterans Administration. He learned from experienced attorneys all aspects of the disability administrative process and how to successfully argue cases in both administrative proceedings and in the Federal Courts. He has argued disability cases in numerous United States District Courts, the U.S. Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals, the U.S. Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals, and the U.S. Court of Appeals for Veterans Claims. After moving to Elizabeth City, North Carolina, Mr. Bowman joined Goss and Fentress May, 2008 and continues to successfully represent thousands of clients in disability cases.

Having grown up in the mountain region of Southwest Virginia, Erick Bowman witnessed the toll that hard work, accident and injury can take on people. Dealing with the government and its thousands of regulations can be a daunting task. People sometimes need help getting benefits they have earned through years of hard work. That’s why Mr. Bowman has devoted his career in helping the disabled obtain their disability benefits.
