Overview

J.A. Sowell joined ELPO Law as an associate attorney in August 2017. A lifelong native of Bowling Green, J.A. is a graduate of the University of Louisville Brandeis School of Law and Western Kentucky University.

Becoming an attorney was never on J.A.’s radar and only became his focus about halfway through earning his bachelor’s degree at WKU. “Since I was a child, I had always thought I would become a physician,” Sowell says. “However, this changed when my undergraduate history professor encouraged me to consider the legal field. I took a job working for a local law firm and immediately fell in love the profession, experiencing firsthand the demands and rewards of being a lawyer.”

He then fully shifted the focus of his studies at WKU and decided to pursue a career in law. While in law school, he worked as a clerk at ELPO for two summers which helped confirm his interest in the field and in the wide array of practice areas offered by ELPO.

“For me, the best part of working for ELPO is serving the people of Bowling Green and Southcentral Kentucky,” Sowell says. “This community molded me into who I am today. To be able to give back to this community while working for the area’s preeminent law firm is extremely gratifying. As a native of Bowling Green, I have had the privilege of personally witnessing the tremendous impact ELPO has had on our community and also the impeccable reputation this firm has maintained for many years. When I finally decided to become a lawyer, I had always hoped of coming back home and working at ELPO.”

In his personal time, J.A. is a proud supporter of the Hilltoppers and enjoys rooting for the hometown and family favorite as both of his parents are WKU graduates and his brother was a pitcher for the WKU baseball team. He lives in Bowling Green and was recently married.
