Committed to our tradition of providing high quality, effective legal service.

At BOAM, we are proud of our history and tradition. The firm’s founder, Charles R. Bell, began the practice of law in Bowling Green in 1920, and through his partnership with Joe B. Orr,  founded the firm in 1946. No firm in South Central Kentucky has a longer history of continuously providing legal services. We remain committed to our tradition of providing high quality, effective legal services to our clients. 

The attorneys of BOAM recognize the public service responsibilities of the legal community, as the firm’s attorneys consistently volunteer their time and services to charitable organizations in the local community. Our attorneys are also active with civic and business organizations which promote economic development in the region. Among the firm’s members are two past chairmen of the local Chamber of Commerce. Our lawyers actively participate in the affairs of state and local bar associations, as well as professional societies, and provide pro bono legal services.
