The Law Office of Gem McDowell
Gem McDowell launched his own firm on January 1, 2010 to put all of his effort and resources into working on behalf of his own selected clients. After working as a solo practitioner for 2 years, he began to take on additional attorneys and grow the practice. His associates have received extensive training to provide clients with the same high level of service they’ve come to expect from Gem.
Leading a smaller firm allows Gem to substantially reduce hourly rates due to lower overhead while still providing excellent service and individualized attention to his clients.
To thank them for their service, Gem offers current and former military and first-responders a 10% discount on all legal services.
