About me

Hi! I'm Rick Lowell. Following a stint as a Navy submariner, I went to law school and then began working with insurance companies, representing those who allegedly caused injury to others. Soon I expanded my practice to help those who have been injured by others. I am able to apply the knowledge & experience obtained in my insurance defense work to maximize my injury clients' recoveries. Visit and please call me to discuss your legal concerns. I look forward to helping you!
