Naman Howell Welcomes Brad Dowell


Naman Howell is proud to announce the addition of David B. “Brad” Dowell as a Member in the firm’s Fort Worth office, where he will handle Labor and Employment, General Litigation, Personal Injury and Medical Liability matters.

Prior to joining Naman Howell, Mr. Dowell spent 27 years practicing at Cantey Hanger after graduation from Baylor University School of Law. After spending many years as a trial lawyer working on numerous different personal injury and general civil litigation matters, his practice evolved into more complex managed care litigation, serving as counsel for one of the State’s largest health insurance companies. This, coupled with his experience in arbitration, eventually brought him to focus his practice on labor and employment matters. This focus led to his founding, alongside partners Lu Pham and Caroline Harrison, of Dowell Pham Harrison in Fort Worth, Texas, where he has practiced ever since.

Mr. Dowell has tried or arbitrated cases involving alleged violation of collective bargaining agreements, breach of distribution agreements, wrongful termination, alleged employment discrimination and retaliation, as well as numerous personal injury matters, ranging from slip and fall cases to alleged negligent security.

“I have known and been friends with Brad for over 30 years, from when we were first starting out as new lawyers at Cantey Hanger. I’ve since had the privilege of working alongside Brad and his partners as co-counsel and watching his practice expand over the years. I am both personally and professionally thrilled that he will be joining Naman Howell. His extensive experience in both labor and employment and personal injury matters will be a great compliment to our growing presence in the Fort Worth area.” said Naman Howell President, J.K. Leonard.

Regarding the transition, Mr. Dowell commented “I’m happy to be joining such a great group of attorneys working in one of Texas’ oldest and most respected firms. While I will greatly miss my prior firm, and the many talented individuals I had the pleasure of working with there, I am sincerely looking forward to the opportunity in front of me to get back to my roots at Naman Howell.”
