Throughout his career, he has distinguished himself as a leading expert in litigation at both the trial and appellate level, handling hundreds of criminal cases throughout his career. As an Army Officer, Lieutenant Colonel Owens-Filice proved himself to be an outstanding leader, both at home and abroad, and has earned numerous awards, to include the Bronze Star and the Purple Heart.
