Herschel Bowens


Herschel assists clients with complex real estate transactions.

Herschel began his career as a specialist at the United States Department of Agriculture, working with state agencies and programs to ensure that funds were used appropriately and legally. As he grew professionally, enforcing laws and policies of the USDA, he wanted to learn more about how to influence the law to create better policies. In addition, Herschel also knew he loved the counseling component of his job—similar to the work he’d do as an attorney. He went on to enroll in law school after 15 years with the federal government.

Today, Herschel focuses his legal practice on real estate matters and the purchase, sale and leasing of real property. With a passion for land ownership and the role it plays in both private and corporate wealth, he devoted as much time as possible to the subject in law school. As a Husch Blackwell summer associate, he also had the opportunity to work on multiple commercial real estate transactions, drafting documents and providing support to the team and clients.

Herschel is known for prioritizing professional service. His role at the USDA emphasized providing excellent client service to states and their agencies, and Herschel valued building relationships with these clients, making onsite visits, and fully getting to know their programs, plans and future needs. He also had an opportunity as a law student to intern at a major multinational beverage corporation, where he gained an inside perspective on what companies truly need from outside counsel and how attorneys can be most helpful to corporate clients.

With an inquisitive, logical mind, Herschel has a gift for analyzing data and legal facts, piecing both together to tell a story and solve a problem. He wants clients to think of him first and foremost as a problem solver: whatever the situation is, Herschel will find a solution.
