Lisa Zarzour Bowman Will Make A Great Circuit Court Clerk

Thursday, March 20, 2014

Who will get your vote for Circuit Court Clerk of Hamilton County in the 2014 election?

No doubt you have seen the billboards and signage of all the candidates for the position of Hamilton County Circuit Court Clerk.  However, I submit Republican Lisa Zarzour Bowman is the best candidate for the position.  Her 30-plus years of legal experience separates her from the others.   In fact, she could sit at any desk in the clerk’s office and do every job right now.  I don’t believe either of her opponents could do the same.

Ms. Bowman began her legal career as a paralegal with the prestigious law firm of Paty, Rymer and Ulin and put herself through undergraduate studies at the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga, earning a Bachelor of Science in Criminal Justice.  She then attended and graduated from Nashville School of Law with a Doctorate of Jurisprudence.   She accomplished this as a single mother raising her son.   

The years of commitment, personal sacrifice, and dedication soon paid off as she passed her bar exam at first opportunity.  She opened her own law firm in and has served Chattanooga’s legal needs successfully for over 17 years.  As a Chattanooga business owner, she immediately hired a professional staff, automated her practice, and concentrated on Chattanooga (Hamilton County) families as a premier domestic law attorney.  She quickly earned the respect of the courts, her colleges, and most importantly, her clients. 

Over the years, Ms. Bowman has contributed hundreds of hours of pro-bono (free) legal assistance for our Hamilton County residents in nearly every specialty of law.  Recognized as a professional and competent attorney, she has served as replacement judge in Chattanooga City Court administering justice in a fair in impartial manner.

Lisa Zarzour Bowman’s tireless dedication to Chattanooga family law has greatly benefited our residents.  As the next Circuit Court Clerk, she will bring her unique talents to the very same office she has submitted thousands of documents to for filing with the court.  She understands the operational needs of the Clerk’s office, is well respected by the current administration’s staff, and can lead the office and its team in a fiscally responsible and efficient manner.  With the same determination she has shown with her education and professional life, she will make the office of Hamilton County Circuit Court Clerk a “showplace” for Tennessee. 

Whether voting early April 16-30; or in the May 6 Republican Primary; cast your vote for the candidate with the education, background, and experience to best serve.   She will serve the citizens of Hamilton County with great honor and pride. 

When you compare the candidates it is clear; Lisa Zarzour Bowman deserves your vote.
