I was facing a life changing charge that you can't resolve without some horsepower & knowledge. I interviewed a couple of potential attorneys; some recommended, some unsolicited. I didn't feel they had what I needed. I then found Michael Lowe through some well spent research. I called his office and in 10 minutes I got a call back from Micheal himself, not some newbie associate. We talked on the phone for at least 45 minutes and we set an interview (AFTER HOURS)!!! I've been unfortunate enough to need help in the past and never had such a good first impression of a lawyer. I asked how much to resolve my case. I paid what he asked. It was steep (in other words, no new car this year) but worth EVERY penny!!!! Micheal got me the best result I could have expected given the charges & circumstances. He didn't BS me with promises. If you can afford him, you better hire him.
One last thing, after he works his magic, he just disappeared. Poof, Gone, Love Ya, See Ya. Just like a good lawyer should.
FIRTST ARREST EVER ON THE SCALE I WAS LOOKING AT (FELONY AROUND JUNE)... I WASNT SURE WHAT THE F*** WAS GOING ON. MET HIM THAT DAY, (FREE CONSULTATION) TALKED ABOUT OPTIONS TO PROCEDE DECIDED TO USE HIS REPRESENTATION AT 5K. HIS STAFF WAS ALLWAYS HELPFULL AND DIDNT BOTHER DEALING WITH ME ON A WEEKLY BASES. HE INITIALLY TOLD ME IN THE GRAND JURY PHASE WE WOULD BE FINE, AT FIRST. THEN SAID HE WASNT SURE OF GETTING IT NO BILLED, AND OFFERED ANOTHER STRATEGY, TERRIBLE IN MY OPINION. COME OCTOBER SAME YEAR, I WAS NO BILLED AND LOOKING FORWARD TO MY EXPUNCTION IN 2015 WITH NO RECORD. I RECOMMEND THIS GUY EVEN IF HIS ADVICE IS STRONG AT TIMES, HE KNOWS HIS STUFF.
When I met Michael he made me feel very comfortable about how we would defend my case. He is extremely knowlegdeable of the federal court system and well connected with the system. He was always was straight forward and never mislead me in any way realted to the case. He also made sure I was kept informed regarding the status of my case. Highly reccomend him for any federal criminal law related issues.
Mr Lowe took money from me for services that were never performed for which he totally convinced me, basically lied to me, we would win my case if we took it to trial but if you read the fine print of the contract there are NO REFUNDS regardless of whether you pay him for a trial or not or for anything for that matter. I paid him 4000.00 for a trial that he convinced me we WOULD win and then we NEVER went to trial upon his advice and prior to convincing me to pay for trial I had to pay for the initial representation as well which not cheap either 3500.00 (AGAIN FINE PRINT NO REFUNDS). After paying him in full while we were walking into the court room to announce "Ready for Trial" he then told me we would not win the trial as before this he was convinced we would win while I was writing the check out. He discussed it with me and said he recommended we not go but never offered me a refund. He is NOT concerned about the CLIENT only concerned about getting money upfront for non performance because it is not refundable. I work in a professional public environment and I know a lot of people and I would NEVER recommend him to any of my peers. I have already been asked by peers and told them DO NOT USE Mr Lowe. I am still sitting on the fence as to whether or not I am going to file a complaint with the BAR. I believe if you do not perform a service morally you should give the money back especially if he said it would not be a good idea to go to trial the day of my court when he had said on more than one occasion this was an easy win. Needless to say I lost my case and am out 8500.00. Which I think I should get the 4000.00 back since it was his idea to go to trial and then backed out of it. He is not interested in winning your case he is interested in the revenue he is bringing in. In this questionaire it asks what type of case did he handle for me ... It really does not matter what case it was, he out right lied to me and did not get all the evidence he needed to win the case and fully new he was not prepared when he showed up for court hence recommending a NO TRIAL suggestion. I felt helpless at that point and totally alone in the courtroom where I was suppose to have competent representation. NO I DO NOT RECOMMEND THIS ATTORNEY for even a simple legal case such as simple case of Power of Attorney and you can do that yourself with the proper paperwork. He is a great talker when it comes to wanting your business. After he gets it you won't hear from him asking you for information on your case nor for anything else that could be vital and extremely pertinent. He relies totally on the police reports and basically believes them and ignores your story.
Michael was great help in my case. He filled me in on everything that would happen and helped me though the whole process. He worked hard and got my case dismissed!
I have used Michael Lowe on several occasions, and each time the results far exceeded my expectations. I have referred family and friends who report back 100% satisfaction on each case. He treats all of his clients with respect and dignity, while also keeping expectations realistic. It's a very secure feeling knowing he will respond like family anytime legal help is needed. He is bottom-line the best criminal defense lawyer in the DFW area.
Michael has been an outstanding attorney in handeling my DWI case. I'm amazed at how he was able find the proper angle to get my charges greatly reduced. He is a professional, knows his job very well and always kept me updated and informed at every step along the judicial path. Michael has saved my career and allowed me to carry on with my life as if nothing happened. I would recommend Michael to anyone for any case. My family and I thank him for all he has done for us.
Michael is an outstanding attorney. He got several of my cases dismissed and I was able to get my record expunged. Thanks to him, I still have a life, career and am able to move on without any of my careless mistakes from my past haunting me. I would recommend him to anybody looking for an attorney with experience and expertise. Hire Michael Lowe, you will not be disappointed.
I wanted to write and thank you again for the outstanding job you did in defending me on my DWI charges. As we discussed when we first met, the attorney I had previously hired failed to make any progress in obtaining an occupational license for me after several weeks on the case. Within a day and a half of being hired, you obtained everything needed to allow me to do the driving necessary for day-to-day life. You also promptly handled all the reinstatement paperwork so that when my license suspension ended I was able to regain full driving privileges immediately, minimizing the disruption to my life. At trial, your thoroughness and attention to detail was critical to obtaining the favorable outcome that ultimately resulted. I am extremely grateful for all your assistance. Additionally, I appreciate your willingness, throughout the process, to take time to answer my questions and keep me informed regarding how the case was progressing and what I should expect.
Your experience, skill, and professionalism clearly had a positive impact on the outcome of my case. I would not hesitate to recommend your services to anyone I know. Thanks again for your help.
