Business Leaders… PART 3 46 FOCUS - MAY 2018 MICHAEL FOWLER and JAMIE TUDHOPE Michael L. Fowler Law Office (Michael L. Fowler Professional Corporation) “A person only gets out of a community what that person puts into it.” Lawyer Mike Fowler lives that philosophy, professionally and personally. A Port Perry native, Mike was called to the Bar in 1980, joining the prestigious Oshawa and Port Perry firm of Kelly, Jermyn, Zuly. But returning home was Mike’s dream. Given the opportunity to purchase the firm’s Port Perry branch, he fulfilled that goal. WithpartnerJamieTudhopeandassociatePeggyRoythefirmspecializesinReal Estate, Corporations/Business Law and Estate Planning/Administration. Mike’s roots in the community run deep. A charter member of Port Perry’s Rotary Club, he has served two terms as President. He led fundraising for the town’s new library, fundraised for the Hospital Foundation, and acted as co-Chair for Ducks Unlimited. True to his philosophy, Mike has contributed greatly and enjoyed living in the community. There’s no place, he’d say, like home. 175 North Street, Port Perry 905-985-8411 • Michael L.
