What others have said about Hon. George N. Bowden



Comment #: WA478
Horrible Judge. The only person who makes him look slightly good is Commissioner Jacalyn Brudvik. My attorney shook his head and said "who did I piss off to get a Brudvik decision revised before Bowden?" The real losers are the Citizens of Snohomish County and the Snohomish County attorneys who naively brag about the quality of their judiciary.

Ignores (or is unsure of) the law, and highly favors his supporters. I personally do not find this 'judge' honorable. He bullies his way around the courtroom, and sides with his supporters regardless of what the law says. How he is allowed to be making decisions for families is beyond me.

Lacks knowledge of the law or ignores it to favor his favorite attorneys and supporters.
