Biography

Ken Bowen is certified by the Florida Supreme Court as a circuit-civil and county court mediator. Mr. Bowen is based in Pinellas County, but mediates and arbitrates cases throughout the Tampa Bay area and West Central Florida, including Hillsborough, Pinellas, Pasco, Polk, Manatee, Sarasota, Lake, Hernando, Citrus, Marion, Sumter, Charlotte, Lee and Orange Counties.

Ken Bowen is certified by the United States District Court, Middle District of Florida, to mediate cases in federal court, and he is on the roster of bankruptcy mediators for the United States Bankruptcy Court, Tampa Division. Ken Bowen is on mediation panels for the American Arbitration Association; the Hillsborough County Bar Foundation; Mediation Managers, Inc.; the State of Florida, Department of Business and Professional Regulation (arbitration proceedings conducted pursuant to Chapters 718 and 719 of the Florida Statutes), Florida’s Sixth Judicial Circuit, and several Residential Mortgage Foreclosure Managed Mediation Programs (pursuant to Florida Supreme Court Administrative Order AOSC09-54) throughout Florida.

Mr. Bowen was born and raised in St. Petersburg, Florida, but has lived and worked in Washington, D.C., Colorado, Central America, Europe, and South-East Asia.  After the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001, Mr. Bowen joined the United States Coast Guard as a Port Security Specialist and was assigned to Port Security Unit 307, a deployable unit tasked with providing waterborne and shoreside security to high value assets in support of Department of Defense operations within theaters of war.

In 2016 Mediator Bowen created the Frogman Feast which is an annual celebrity chef charity event in St. Petersburg, Florida. By bringing together 15 elite chefs from around the country, a live band, vineyards, brewers, distilleries, and a silent auction, the Frogman Feast has raised more than $60,000 for the families of US Navy SEALs who never made it home.

Mr. Bowen's diverse background and experience provides him with a unique perspective that serves him well in his mediation practice.

Mr. Bowen will mediate or arbitrate any circuit-civil case, as well as pre-suit matters, including Magnuson Moss Warranty Act (mediated more than 1,000 Magnuson Moss Warranty Act cases as of 2018), auto dealership cases, FDCPA (Federal Debt Collection Protection Act) and TCPA (Telephone Consumer Protection Act), real estate, foreclosure, commercial, condominium, HOA (home owners association), construction, contract, corporate, elder care, employment and non-compete, franchise disputes, hurricane claims, insurance coverage and bad faith, sink hole, real estate, partnership disputes and dissolutions, personal injury and wrongful death, premises and product liability, probate, professional liability (accounting, dental, legal and medical), securities and any international legal matters.
