After returning from a tour of duty in Vietnam as a highly decorated Infantry Captain, Mr. Fowler spent three years with a prominent plaintiff firm and a well-known defense firm.  During his practice in the 1970's and 1980's, Mr. Fowler concentrated his efforts on defending the all-terrain-vehicle industry and challenging the populist court on definitive insurance issues.  In 1986, he merged his rapidly growing firm with one of the large law firms in West Virginia and rose to be a managing partner.

In 1975, Mr. Fowler was appointed by the West Virginia Supreme Court of Appeals as a Special Prosecutor to investigate and prosecute voter fraud allegations in Logan County, West Virginia.  He obtained convictions of key members of the controlling political group and helped establish election law procedures that were later adopted by the legislature.

In his private practice, he represented the Judicial Inquiry Commission and investigated allegations against sitting judges.  He currently serves as Hearing Examiner for the West Virginia Board of Bar Examiners.  He has also served the bar as a speaker at the West Virginia University College of Law.
