We had a wonderful experience with Sharon Ten and her staff to craft our estate, will and trust documents. The team was incredibly kind, professional and responsive to our needs. Both Sharon and Megan were fun to work with-- personable and down to earth --which made our experience that much more enjoyable! We further appreciated the in-depth education on all options regarding our requests. We highly recommend Sharon Ten and her team at Bowen Ten Cardani, PC.

Jamie Hasty

Last night was the first time, in many months, that I was able to rest easier, thanks to the professionalism and tenacity that I witnessed in Court yesterday. Each and every occasion, over the past 2 years, that I had to depend on [Sharon Ten’s] expertise and perseverance to remove the obstacle, you "delivered"....words aren't adequate to express my thanks to you and Megan.


I trusted Google Reviews in search for an attorney to handle a personal business issue for me. Matt Long and the team at Bowen Ten Cardani were great to work with, professional and their fees reflected an awareness that I was consumer ... fair. They exceeded my expectations. Mr. Long succeeded in successfully resolving my business issue. I highly recommend Matt and his team.

I have to say you (Matt Long) are probably the most efficient personal injury attorney I've ever worked with and I've been doing this for 29 years! All the documents needed for this would have taken others months to get to me.

Jon Hall, Insurance Adjuster

Mr. Cardani,
I just wanted to take a moment to thank you for being able to see the best in both of our son's homes and families. I am not too sure what exactly changed in our last court case, but it changed all of us for the better. We are very happy to report that while we still have a long way to go, we have been able to leave the past in the past and join forces to work as a solid family for our son's benefit. I thank you for being a stellar counsel for our son and being able to be the number one person to see through all the mess and keep his best interest in play, as well as being able to put everything in perspective for us. So, from the very bottom of all of our hearts, Thank you! We all wish you a very merry Christmas and a blessed New Year!

Sincerely, BL

You made it very easy and took much of the worry away as you obviously are very good at what you do! We appreciate your care and attentiveness to our situation and also the speed with which you were able to get this done.


Sandy Bowen's wisdom and experience were invaluable to me in making the best decisions for my children's welfare during the divorce process. I was very pleased with the outcome of my case.

Lori T.

To Sandy Bowen:

I am glad you are there to make sure that if this (divorce) is inevitable, that I divorce well. I am trying to deal with the emotions of this whole situation. I consider you my champion and felt comfortable with choosing you to represent me, and I trust you have my best interests in mind.

Matt is an excellent resource for legal concerns! He was very professional and thorough with a recent legal matter. Matt was supportive and quick to respond with all concerns. He helped to address the issue and yielded favorable results within three days. My fiancé and I would highly recommend him for assistance in legal matters, especially those involving contract law!

Christina Strasburg

I have called on Matt several times over the last few years and I have always felt better at the end of the conversation than I did at the beginning. Things come up all the time when you are running a business and sometimes you need an informed opinion about what a business can and can't do. Matt has been able to help me make tough decisions confidently or been able to refer me to an expert every time. Either way, Matt is always my first phone call.

Matt is an outstanding networking partner and has gone above and beyond to help his business colleagues in any way that he can. In my experiences with Matt, I have found him to be an honest, engaging, positive, professional, and sincere businessman. Matt is remarkably proficient at critical thinking; he is extremely organized and incredibly adaptable in every situation. Not only do I highly recommend him as an attorney but also as a business colleague, as he excels in every situation he approaches and is a valuable asset to any team that he is a part of.

Matt is very conscientious and cares about his clients and friends. He is very excited about his profession and will be a very successful attorney. I would recommend him to anyone who would need his services.

Ms. McPheron is a phenomenal lawyer. She cares about the best interest of the child/children involved in the case. She communicated effectively and efficiently because she kept me in the know regarding all aspects of my case. I didn't have any questions about my case because she let me know what was going on from the beginning to the end, and she represented me for five months. Whenever we talked, she listened to my concerns, and I NEVER felt like I was bothering or boring her. She is a professional lawyer who understands the law and the best interest of your child/children.

Richmond, Va.

We never imagined being in a position of needing a defense attorney. We contacted several attorneys in the area, but none were as personable and informative as Scott Cardani. His desire to help others was apparent the first time we met. Not only did Scott put forth tremendous effort to obtain the best possible outcome, he treated us like family. He and Kristin answered all our questions promptly, no matter how trivial, and provided us with reassurance during an overwhelmingly stressful time. We feel fortunate to have chosen Scott to represent us, and we recommend him without hesitation.


Thank you Jackie. I will be honored to give your name to my friends. You did such a terrific job and were sympathetic to my emotions. Once again, Thank You!

Richmond, Va.

Dear Sandy,

I think we are on the right path now. Having a family practice lawyer give insight and credence to our course of action was invaluable. You cast the problem in an entirely different light for us and empowered everyone to be healthier in our response to a most challenging custody issue. We are better off for our consultation with you: empowered, hopeful and more at ease. Thank you.


To Sandy Bowen:

I want to thank you for all of your help and guidance through the separation and divorce. While I was very lucky to avoid a contentious divorce it was still incredibly emotional. With your help and assistance the process was as smooth as it could have been.

I look forward to all that life has to bring.

Thank you!

June 2015

I never had to have an attorney before but I think I had the coolest, flyest, competent-ist (if that's even a word) attorney helping me that there is in RVA.


Dear Jackie:

I would just like to say Thank you, Thank you, Thank you...for representing me in my case and it going so smoothly. You don't know — well, I guess you do — what a relief it was when the judge said, "You're excused"... I was so shocked I think I forgot to thank him properly.

When I was walking to the court building from the parking lot, I found a $1 bill on the sidewalk; I knew that was a sign of good luck for me that day.

Anyway — again, Thank you!


Dear Sharon:

First, thank you for your support as a friend and as our lawyer. We were very pleased with the services provided by your firm and especially Mary Kate Zekert's professionalism and knowledge of the law. She communicated well with us giving us as parents and also our daughter who had gotten a traffic ticket in Chesterfield County confidence and support. If we are in need of legal services again we will not hesitate to contact your firm and will definitely recommend you and Mary Kate to others.


Dear Scott,

Thank you. We all appreciate your support and defense of Kayla immensely. May God Bless Your Family 100-fold for your Integrity and Generosity with your Time and Thoughts. ...


Redemption Hill Church, et. al.

Ms. Sharman;

Just wanted to send you an email and personally thank you for all of your help with filing our bankruptcy. It feels like a weight has been lifted off my shoulders and I can breathe without waiting for a shoe to drop. Will make sure to refer you to any friends or family looking for a good lawyer in the future. It has been a pleasure working with you and your team.

Sandy Bowen's wisdom and experience were invaluable to me in making the best decisions for my children's welfare during the divorce process. I was very pleased with the outcome of my case.
Lori T.

To Sandy and Dottie Stebbing, paralegal: "Thank you to both of you for all your guidance and work on my divorce. You've made it bearable."


I just wanted to thank you again for your guidance & patience while helping us thought this difficult time in our lives. You really made things easier than I anticipated. You were truly appreciated. I hope all is well with you and Thank you again!

Ronnie and Penny Gasparac

Britney was retained last minute to represent me in a nasty custody battle within a week of the trial date. Between Britney and April, they put together a powerful presentation and amazing case that made the mother just walk out of the courtroom and get in her car and drive away right in the middle of the trial. As funny as this may sound, it is a true testament to the dedication and willingness to prepare above and beyond for her clients. I put off retaining counsel because I didn't think that a lawyer was really needed in a custody battle where the mother was obviously unfit, but throughout the process Britney was more of a friend than a lawyer. No matter what time of the day or night, she was only an email or phone call away to answer some of the craziest questions or calm any concerns that I had. Retaining Britney and her firm to represent me was truly one of the smartest things I have done.
