In the words of her peers, Allison Bowers "represents the very best of the legal profession - smart, honest, caring, and extremely capable." Born and raised in a small Texas town, Allison's approach to law reflects her grounded, practical roots. Allison is a frequent speaker on employment law topics, has been named to the Best Lawyers and Texas Super Lawyer lists, and has served as an expert witness on the legal sufficiency of an internal investigation.

After law school, Allison clerked for Lee Yeakel, now Judge of the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Texas in Austin. Allison practiced as a commercial litigator with Baker Botts LLP for over ten years before co-founding Hutcheson Bowers LLLP, which celebrated its 11th anniversary in 2022.

Allison's sensible and sympathetic perspective make her especially sought after as an investigator and counselor on difficult employee management issues. Executives love working with Allison for these same reasons. Allison is also called on to manage litigation because she is laser-focused on getting to the best resolution for her client in the most efficient way possible.

After busy days at work, Allison enjoys the peaceful process of tending to her orchids, some of which she's had for over 10 years. Her oldest plant, a philodendron, is over 30 years old and has survived being dug up and hauled all over Austin. Her husband and teenage daughter often try to interrupt her, but she's learned to tune them out.

How do I choose a lawyer?

Consider the following:

Comfort Level
- Are you comfortable telling the lawyer personal information? Does the lawyer seem interested in solving your problem?

Credentials
- How long has the lawyer been in practice? Has the lawyer worked on other cases similar to yours?

Cost
- How are the lawyer's fees structured - hourly or flat fee? Can the lawyer estimate the cost of your case?

City
- Is the lawyer's office conveniently located?

Not sure what questions to ask a lawyer?

Here are a few to get you started:

  • How long have you been in practice?
  • How many cases like mine have you handled?
  • How often do you settle cases out of court?
  • What are your fees and costs?
  • What are the next steps?

Want to check lawyer discipline?

It is always a good idea to research your lawyer prior to hiring. Every state has a disciplinary organization that monitors attorneys, their licenses, and consumer complaints. By researching lawyer discipline you can:

  • Ensure the attorney is currently licensed to practice in your state
  • Gain an understanding of his or her historical disciplinary record, if any.
  • Determine the seriousness of complaints/issues which could range from late bar fees to more serious issues requiring disciplinary action.
