Sloan, Bagley, Hatcher & Perry Associate J. Ryan Fowler Joins the American Board of Trial Advocates

HOUSTON --(Business Wire)--

J. Ryan Fowler, lead attorney for Sloan, Bagley, Hatcher & Perry Law Firm's Houston office, has been nominated and elected to the American Board of Trial Advocates (ABOTA).

Membership to ABOTA is by invitation only. Any trial lawyer who is of high personal character and honorable reputation, a member of the Bar, and who has met the additional qualifications as prescribed in ABOTA's Constitution, may become a member upon nomination and election.

ABOTA's mission is to preserve the right to trial by jury as defined by the Seventh Amendment of the Bill of Rights and educating the public to what that right means. Thomas Jefferson was of the opinion that the right to trial by a jury of fellow citizens was a more important safeguard of personal liberty than the right to vote.

"It is an honor to be recognized by my peer group in an organization whose members are among the top trial lawyes in the country," said Fowler. "I'm extremely proud to represent my firm as well as join my colleagues, John Sloan and Glenn Perry, who are also members of ABOTA."

Fowler is looking forward to leveraging the subject matter expertise and mentoring available from fellow ABOTA members not only for his professional growth but also to best support the firm's clients as cases are prepared for lawsuits. In time, he hopes that he will be an effective mentor for future members.

"We are extremely proud of Ryan and the excellent record he has already established," said the Sloan Firm founding partner, John Sloan. "He is passionate in working for our clients. He cares deeply and counts many past clients as friends."

He earned a Bachelor of Business Administration degree, with honors, from the University of Texas in 2004 and a Doctor of Jurisprudence degree, cum laude, from Baylor University's School of Law in 2007.

Fowler relocated to the Houston area in 2011 to develop the firm's Houston presence.
