Each day I wake, I feel privileged to be in a position to help folks who lack the legal experience to help themselves. I am in my 21st year of practicing law.
Why hire me? I am very experienced, not afraid of hard work and I do not lack strong compassion.
Four incredible people (my Dad, Mother, brother and wife), have taught me much. No one is a more humble and honest than my father (who never bragged despite coming from the mean Tacoma streets to surviving and standing out in the Jim Owens UW football regime). From my mother, I learned perservance (working as an RN, never once complaining about the long hours). My brother was the hardest working athlete I ever saw (WSU baseball player) and he has carried this ethic into a very successful coaching/teaching career. My wife teaches me compassion and drive, I could not have a more caring, hard working wife and mother of my three children.
I have battle-scarred empathy. I too have struggled with issues life presents. I understand the stress losing a job; I know the challenge of financially surviving in this world; I have experienced family dramas; and I have felt the unclassey sting of small-town politics.
I have alot of heart and will work hard for you. Athletics at a young age instilled this in me. Although I was never the most talented athlete - I worked very hard to make it to the college level.
I have great legal experience. I worked as Prosecutor in 1998, have worked as a Public Defender and private practice for 20 years. Also, I served over a decade in the U.S. Army Reserves as a JAG officer where I helped hundreds of soldiers which included service in Korea.
In addition, I had the distinct honor of being an intern for Paul Luvera and John Murphy in the early 90's--I have never seen men so passionate in their search for justice and their unmatched work ethic.
I am affordable and set my fees based on what you can afford.
If you desire more information about my law practice, give me a call at 360.755.0111.

I heartily endorse David Lowell. As a GAL, I appreciate an attorney who is compassionate but will hold the client's feet to the fire in a reasonable way. David has worked tirelessly on several very challenging cases to reach understanding and agreement. I wish more attorneys practiced like David.

I endorse this lawyer. I have referred some of my clients to Mr. Lowell for the preparation of a will and trust documents (an area that I do not practice.) I have always found him to be knowledgeable, and an excellent lawyer.
