My lawyer
Attorney Lown did a great job on my case in Boston. He was always professional and listened to what I had to say. He knew who the judges were and was able to navigate the court system for me. I recommend him.

A great lawyer
I had Zachary Lown as my criminal defense attorney on a domestic case. This was in Boston. Unfortunately, our child’s mother was attempting to have me wrongly convicted of a crime. Attorney Lown summonsed key records such as DCF reports and medical records which helped establish that the other party was lying. Attorney Lown presented the case to a jury. The jury agreed that I was innocent. I am finally able to refocus on my family and employment.

Best Public Defender/Lawyer for getting Great Results!
To be short and brief in May of 2018 Zachary Lown helped me get my life back. I was accused of domestic batter by a bitter X girlfriend. She lied on me telling the police I hit her. She was jealous of my new girlfriend and got me put in jail and tried to hurt my Real estate career. Zachary Lown is very sharp when it comes to knowing the law and taking care of business.

Defense of 150%
I first met Zach in the public defender office 3yrs ago. He was assigned to represent my fiancee 3x in a row & not only got all 3 case's dismissed which was a miracle considering my fiance's record but he continued to help him even when his job was done w/ other aspects of the legal system. I've been through a lot of public defenders w/ my fiancee in the last 4yrs for other criminal case's & honestly not one aside from Zach ever called me back nevermind had his case so well prepared. Now mid 2018, Zach's legal duties have been over for 2yrs yet Zach has that special relationship w/ his past clients & has continued going above and beyond to help him. Zach gave me & my fiancee faith again in our criminal justice system that every defendant is entitled to a zealous defense. If I could rate Zachary lown as a 10+ on here I would. My fiancee has had 5 public defender's in 3yrs. Yet Zach now with his own law firm now taking his valuable time to continue helping him
