McGowan received the honor for his many years of practice with Steptoe & Johnson as well as with the Boy Scouts of America (BSA) and for helping to bring the Summit Bechtel Family National Scout Reserve to West Virginia.  McGowan, an Eagle Scout himself, worked closely with BSA officials, volunteers, business leaders, state representatives - including then Governor Joe Manchin - for nearly two years as a co-chair of the task force responsible for putting together the recruiting effort for the project. 

“Steve took his passion for scouting and turned it into a great career move which led to a big win for the entire state,” said Steptoe & Johnson CEO Susan S. Brewer.  “Steve is no stranger to service, having served his clients for many years as an attorney.  I know I speak for everyone at Steptoe & Johnson when I say how proud we are of Steve for his Who’s Who honor and for all he has accomplished throughout his career.” 

McGowan’s legal practice focuses on complex litigation and business strategies.  He works closely with energy companies in high stakes litigation and helps them identify solutions to risks and challenges when implementing strategic initiatives.  Prior to joining the legal profession, McGowan served as a West Virginia State Police Trooper.  McGowan earned his law degree from West Virginia University and his undergraduate degree from West Virginia State College.  He is ranked among The Best Lawyers in America for 2015.
