Attorney of Record
  • Profile

Patrick Bowers was born in Tarzana, California and grew up in Santa Clarita and Tehachapi. After his graduation from Tehachapi High School in 2002, Patrick earned his B.A. in Political Science from UCLA. Patrick enjoyed his last quarter of college in Washington DC where he studied at the UCLA Center for American Politics and Public Policy and interned for the Chairman of the House Ways and Means Committee.

In 2006 Patrick began his legal studies at Boston University School of Law. While at BU, Patrick participated in the Litigation Clinic and Legislative Internship Clinic in which he interned for the Massachusetts Senate Minority Leader.

Patrick obtained his Juris Doctorate from BU in 2009. Patrick is admitted to the State Bar of California, and the Eastern and Central Districts of California. Patrick was an associate attorney at Clifford & Brown and then practiced in Washington DC. Upon returning home to Kern County, he joined Middlebrook & Associates.

Patrick leverages his developed skills to effectively negotiate for his clients and frame complex legal issues at the appellate level. He is part of the team that handled and successfully argued Department of Motor Vehicles v. Najera (5th Dist. Court of Appeal F069387) which is thefirst California appellate case to address the issue of substantial evidence rebutting the presumption that reported blood test results are reliable.

He practices law to promote justice for our community. We all know that an arrest can happen to anyone; it takes just one momentary lapse in good judgment or bad luck. Patrick is blessed with the opportunity to help good people turn around bad situations one step at a time.
