About Philip Bowen

I am a Barrister specialising in all aspects of Family Law, Court of Protection & Inquests. I am a member of the Family Law Bar Association and the Association of Lawyers for Children.

I am authorised by the Bar Standards Board to undertake Direct Access work and to conduct litigation. This means that unlike before you do not need to instruct a solicitor in order to use my services. For many people this means a substantial saving in legal fees as you are paying my fees only not those of a solicitor as well. Please see the FAQ page for further details.

Please feel free to look around this site which should answer most of the questions you have.

If you want further information or want to discuss instructing me please contact me through the contact page or ring me on 07484 795377.

I offer a free 30 minute conference to discuss your case and my fees.

What my clients say

Phil was absolutely brilliant. I couldn’t recommend enough. I was very stressed about the situation and he was there for the final hearing day and he took care of it all and made it so easy for me. Needless to say I got the results I needed. I didn’t have to speak or even think much at all. He had it covered. Contacting him was one of the best desisions I have made. Thank you very much Phil

Mr Bowen recently advocated on my final hearing for a family court matter. Phil has the ability to relax clients and allow confidence that he fighting for the voices that are absent from court. The most important aspect is Phil fights like the case is his own. I would recommend Phil and would use him again if ever needed.

What an excellent service recieved from clerksroom direct. I was left high a dry by my solicitor after 3 years with the advise \" you\'ll need a direct access barrister \" I phoned all the local chambers but could not get one so ended up using google search. WHAT A FIND!!!! I emailed clerksroom direct and got a very prompt reply from sam. Through out the whole process communication was great, sam would keep me up to date with the next steps in the process. Then i got an email saying that a barrister has been found. Mr Phil Bowen thumbsup I would strongly recommend this barrister for any family matter which courts are involved. He firstly gave us a call wanting a brief outline of the case. After this I had a zoom meeting with phil a few days prior to the hearing. Throughout the whole 3 day trial phil kept me calm, kept me informed of what was happening but most of all was extremely professional and brilliant at what hes does. Phil Bowen and clerksroom direct are a god send. Hopefully i will never be in court again but if i am, they will be first port of call. Jane.

Clerksroom direct is a godsend.I needed a direct access barrister after being left in the lurch by my solicitor. I googled direct access barrister to which clerksroom direct appeared. The process was so easy to do. After registering i had a very prompt reply from sam. He told me that he had a barrister available for me, which was a massive relief. All throughout the process sam provided good communication and everytime was very prompt with the replies.My barrister was Phil Bowen. I would highly recommend phil for a barrister. As well has been very professional and extremely good at what he does, he also kept me very calm in court and kept me informed of everything that was happening. Like sam, phil was very prompt with replying to any questions or concerns i had via email.I would definitely recommend clerksroom direct and Phil Bowen to anyone needing a barrister.Thank you Phil, sam and clerksroom direct.

I contacted Sam Morgan for a direct access barrister for a fact finding trial in family court. I was appointed Phil Bowen. He is outstanding and very professional and genuinely cares about his clients. In what was a complex hearing, Phil was brilliant and the outcome was hugely in my favour. I would definitely recommend.

I chose Phil Bowen as my preferred Barrister as he is experienced in Family Law, particularly Divorce. I spoke to Sam in the first instance who was extremely helpful and understanding. He arranged for me and Phil to have a Zoom meeting that day. Phil always responds quickly to any queries I have, however small, and doesn\'t make me feel inadequate.

I called Clerksroom Direct and first spoke to Sam. He was so kind and returned all my calls and kept me updated throughout. My claim is still ongoing and this level of service has continued. Phil Bowen was my chosen Barrister and I cant compliment him enough. His kind, gentle, calming way is of credit to him. I feel confident that I will be represented to the best of his ability. He is always on hand to give advice and keep me mentally calm. Thanks to you both.

I initially spoke to Sam. I\'ll be honest I was worried about my divorce. Cost, messages left back and forth and all the drama.He put me on to Phil. He is a hero.Cost. You pay up front, but and this is the big one you know the cost. No worries about emails and phone calls. Phil called me when suited me as I work shifts.Having dealt with other legal folk in my job in the police and when sorting truth e slaes of houses this is a step above.A no nonsense, practical, friendly, professional set up.Don\'t even bother going elsewhere. Pals of mine have and having spoken to me are amazed by what I\'m getting and what I\'m paying and the service I\'m getting to.
