Professional Experience: 
Steve served in the United States Navy from 1997 to 2007. He spent five years on the USS Stout (DDG 55), an Arleigh Burke Guided Missile Destroyer, as a Technician and Operator of the Tomahawk Missile System. His collateral duties included Duty Master-at-Arms (MA), Duty Force Protection Officer, Duty Combat Systems Officer, and many others. After life on the ship, Steve attended the U.S. Navy’s Military Police School before reporting to Naval Station Ingleside. At Naval Station Ingleside, Steve served as a Patrolman before being promoted to Field Training Officer, Assistant Watch Commander and, finally, Watch Commander.

Steve credits his time as a military police officer with leading him into the practice of law. Specifically, an incident that occurred one weekend toward the end of his three year assignment, which led to Steve’s arrest in Corpus Christi, Texas. Even though the case was later dismissed, the mere fact that he was arrested led to professional consequences. Accordingly, Steve is acutely aware of the areas in which police lack training, where they make mistakes, and how to demonstrate to Juries that, although an arrest had been made, inadequate training and methods may cause an innocent person to be found guilty.

During law school, Steve was a member of the University of New Hampshire Criminal Clinic. The Criminal Clinic allowed students to represent clients facing misdemeanor and felony charges in New Hampshire. As a student attorney, Steve represented clients under the Honorable Charles S. Temple whom is now a New Hampshire Superior Court Judge. Steve handled cases ranging from Aggravated assault with a Deadly Weapon to Driving While Intoxicated. During Steve’s final semester, he worked for the Law Office of Lanham Blackwell in Bangor, Maine, where he handled a variety of cases ranging from Personal Injury and Mass Torts to Criminal Law matters.

After graduating law school, Steve followed his dream of starting his own firm. In November of 2013 he opened the doors of Stephen T. Bowling, PC. Steve has represented hundreds of clients ranging from first offense DWI cases to sixth offense DWI cases. Steve primarily focuses on DWI cases because it is one of the only offenses that is based on an officer’s opinion. Steve throughly believes that the standardized field sobriety tests are set up for the person to fail, and inadequate lab standards frequently lead to results that could be considered invalid.

Professional Experience: 

Nancy is a huge asset to Stephen T Bowling, Austin DWI Attorneys. Not only is she compassionate and caring but she has the experience and demeanor of a high profile defense attorney.

Nancy was assigned to the Violent Crimes and Major Offender Section of the Texas Attorney General’s office. This section was responsible for prosecuting cases that were either too complex or specialized for local county prosecutors. In this position she was flown around the State of Texas prosecuting Capital Murder, Murder, Aggravated Robbery, and Assault- Family Violence cases.

The final case Nancy prosecuted as a member of the Violent Crimes Section was the Capital Murder case of State of Texas vs. Crispin Harmelin Williamson County, Texas. The case was a 2009 murder wherein the defendant kidnapped, robbed, raped, and strangled the victim not once, but twice.  The cause of death was a case of first impression in Texas and likely the world because the victim died of delayed death by strangulation. The victim actually survived both strangulations and lived for almost 13 hours after the assault.  However, the multiple strangulations caused massive brain damage and she wound up sitting in her hot car, not running and with the windows rolled up, in the Texas summer heat for 13 hours, basically baking to death because she was unable to save herself.

Nancy experienced a large amount of exposure for her exceptional litigation skills in the Crispin Harmelcase. After years in the exhaustive position with the OAG’s office, Nancy decided she wanted to focus her practice to one area of Texas; to help out the accused in Travis County, Hays County, and Williamson County.

The knowledge Nancy gained in these complex and scientifically intensive cases gave her the perfect combination of trial skill and experience to defend DWI, Drug, and Family Violence cases.

Prior to being recruited to the elite Violent Crimes and Major Offender’s Section of the OAG’s office Nancy was a felony prosecutor in Dallas County, then Nueces County, Texas.

“That it is better 100 guilty Persons should escape than that one innocent Person should suffer.”

—BENJAMIN FRANKLIN (March 14, 1785)

The United States Constitution provides important limitations on the government that protect the rights of United States citizens. The Texas Constitution grants similar rights ensuring the rights of the accused. A fundamental concept in the United States justice system is that an individual is Innocent Until Proven Guilty. As such, the prosecution must prove you are guilty Beyond a Reasonable Doubt, I strive to prove that you are ‘Not Guilty.’ It is important to remember that Not Guilty does not equal Innocent; Not Guilty equals the state did not prove the case Beyond a Reasonable Doubt.

  • After finding myself in legal trouble, I contacted a number of different attorneys frantically. When I came across Steve, his extensive knowledge in DWI cases brought me comfort that I could not find elsewhere at the time. Throughout the process he was always available and willing to discuss the status of my case. My DWI charge was dismissed and I happily accepted a non-DWI and I have Mr. Bowling to thank for it.

  • Steve was a guiding light in a sea of uncertainty. He took care of everything for me. He was understanding, kind, and considerate of my worries and all other aspects of my case. He worked with me on the financial side of things and certainly saved me way more money than he cost. I now consider Steve to be not only "my attorney" but my friend as well. I can only give him my highest recommendation. And what's more...my case was dismissed. Thank you Steve!

  • I am very thankful for the quality of service Mr. Bowling provided me. I was discouraged after finding myself in the situation that I did. Mr. Bowling was able to make me feel comfortable with my case, and through his expertise, had my DWI dismissed and the charge reduced to a non-DWI.
