Filing or defending lawsuits is not always the right answer... Finding the problem and solving it is the hallmark of good legal representation.
– Robert Blakemore, Founding Partner BMB Law
A Tradition of Service
Our tradition of service began in 1969 when four of Akron, Ohio’s prominent attorneys – Robert Blakemore, Bernard Rosen, Joseph G. Miller and Randolph “RC” Norris – formed Blakemore, Rosen, Miller & Norris, the law firm which is known today as Blakemore, Meeker & Bowler, Co., LPA, (BMB Law.)
The deep community involvement and legal expertise of the founding partners led them to focus on meeting the legal needs of families and small businesses in Akron and the surrounding communities. Soon after Mr. Rosen, Mr. Norris, and Mr. Miller left the firm, Robert Meeker became its President and Senior Partner.
In 1977, the name of the firm changed to Blakemore, Meeker & Bowler Co., L.P.A., and in 2003 when Founding Partner Robert Blakemore passed away, Senior Partners Robert C. Meeker and Michael B. Bowler continued to carry on BMB Law with an emphasis on personalized service, providing the soundest legal advice to every client.
Our attorneys keep in close contact with each client from initial consultation to case completion. We strive to ensure all of our clients receive the best possible representation, customized to their unique situation.

A Lasting Legacy
BMB President & Senior Partner Robert C. Meeker has a long family heritage in the field of law. His great, great grandfather Sidney Edgerton was an Akron attorney dedicated to abolition and human rights. Today, Robert is joined by his two sons, Blaise (left) and Colin (right) to carry on that family tradition.
