J. A. Sowell

Associate

J.A. Sowell joined ELPO as an associate attorney in August 2017. A lifelong native of Bowling Green, J.A. is a graduate of the University of Louisville Brandeis School of Law and Western Kentucky University.

Becoming an attorney was never on J.A.'s radar and only became his focus about halfway through earning his bachelor's degree at WKU, Sowell says. "Since I was a child, I had always thought I would become a physician," Sowell says. "However, this changed when my undergraduate history professor encouraged me to consider the legal field. I took a job working for a local law firm and immediately fell in love the profession, experiencing firsthand the demands and rewards of being a lawyer."

He then fully shifted the focus of his studies at WKU, and decided to pursue a career in law. While in law school, he worked as a clerk at ELPO for two summers, which helped confirm his interest in the field and in the wide array of practice areas offered by ELPO.

"For me, the best part of working for ELPO is serving the people of Bowling Green and Southcentral Kentucky," Sowell says. This community molded me into who I am today and to be able to give back to this community while working for the areas preeminent law firm is extremely gratifying. As a native of Bowling Green, I have had the privilege of personally witnessing the tremendous impact ELPO has had on our community and also the impeccable reputation this firm has maintained for many years. When I finally decided to become a lawyer, I had always hoped of coming back home and working at ELPO."
