Upon the dissolution of a predecessor Firm, Friend, Wilson, Draper & Bowling on Feb. 1, 1994, partners Gordon F. Wilson, Jr., and David A. Bowling declined invitations to join several large regional Firms, believing that a smaller Firm structure could best facilitate their goal of providing effective legal representation to clients in need of the skills of trial counsel in the Louisiana court system. Thus, on March 1, 1994, the law Firm of Wilson & Bowling was born. In 1998, Mr. Bowling obtained his license to practice in Mississippi in addition to Louisiana, and the Firm opened a statewide practice in Mississippi. Mr. Wilson retired from active practice with the Firm in 2008.
Prior to Hurricane Katrina, Mr. Bowling represented several New Orleans area hospitals in the defense of medical malpractice and premises liability claims. After these hospitals were destroyed by the Storm, Mr. Bowling transformed his practice to the representation of patients, their families, and other victims of severe personal injury. The Bowling Law Firm was born.
Throughout his 36-year career in trial work, Mr. Bowling has handled numerous complex cases involving medical malpractice, life-threatening personal injury, maritime, and other civil litigation.
