    I have known Scott Vowell for almost 40 years. He was an excellent trial attorney before he became a circuit judge and ultimately our presiding judge. He is outstanding as both a lawyer and a jurist.

    Judge Vowell is an outstanding legal scholar and has strong ethics. He also is concerned about ensuring that the legal system is open to all people regardless of wealth. I highly recommend Judge Vowell.

    Recently, Judge Vowell retired after serving many years as presiding judge in Jefferson Co., AL. In addition to maintaining the integrity of Jefferson Co.'s court system during Jeff. Co.'s many years of financial hardship, Judge Vowell was a first-rate circuit civil judge. Regardless of the ruling, I always felt he gave me an unbiased and substantive hearing on the matter. I give him my highest recommendation and rating.

    This review is in addition to the review of Scott Vowell I just submitted for Alternative Dispute Resolution. Before going on the bench in 1995, he had an active practice in both civil and criminal litigation. While on the bench in our court of general jurisdiction, he tried all types of civil cases and also supervised 25+ other judges who tried both civil and criminal cases. Scott Vowell is one of the best lawyers and is the best judge I have ever known.
