Pierce Fowler is a main character in the American crime drama, Law & Order: New Orleans.
Biography & Personality
Born in New Orleans in June 1954, Fowler was the eldest of an upper-class family's two children. He graduated from Tulane University School of Law in 1976, where he was classmates and good friends with Russell Washington.
He served as a private attorney for 23 years and then is hired as A.D.A. for the New Orleans office in 1999, reuniting him with Washington.
He has been married for 25 years, and has a son and two daughters, Joe (born 1981), Sammi (born 1990) and Charlotte (born 1996).
He is just to be as two-sided as his two predecessors: seeking the harshest punishment for criminals who deserve it, but also showing leniency when given the right circumstances.
Fowler first appears in first episode of the three-part tenth season finale, after meeting Washington for dinner. He is later taken into protective custody along with his family members following Keegan Cobb's threats on the lives of all of Washington's friends. Later, before Washington goes to confront Cobb for the final time, Fowler tells him that no matter what the outcome is, he was lucky to have a friend like Washington.
Fowler is last seen with his family at Washington's funeral, and is said to be in the running for interim D.A.
