Hello! My name is Constance (Connie) Gergen Lowe and I have been practicing law in North Carolina since October 2008. Although I have called many states home, including Alabama, Minnesota, California, Kentucky, and Virginia, I was born in Winston-Salem and am glad to be back in my original home state. I am a small town lawyer at heart, as I like to work closely with my clients whenever practical and I understand that legal issues do not always neatly confine themselves to the standard work week schedule.  

I largely represent clients of modest economic means and I very much enjoy helping clients successfully resolve their legal problems, especially those clients for whom highly personalized representation might otherwise be out of their economic reach. Are you facing an opponent who thinks that they can "win by outspending" you on legal fees? Have other attorneys passed on your personal injury matter, saying it will not be worth their time to pursue?  Do you have a criminal conviction that needs to be reconsidered? Are you trying to get your driving privileges restored without putting yourself in complete poverty? If so, please call me. Even if I cannot take your case, I have a large network of excellent referrals to whom I frequently refer prospective clients. 

Besides assisting clients with family law matters, I represent criminal defendants in District Court, consumers with debt collection issues, Social Security Disability applicants, claimants with personal injuries, and plaintiffs seeking recovery in a variety of other tort contexts.  

LEGAL CASES DISCLAIMER: Every legal matter is unique and the outcomes described below in past legal cases I have handled were specific to those particular matters. Please do not read a case's outcome below and think that your case will have the very same outcome.

Great Lawyer!!!
My attorney was one in a million! If it was not for her I would be lost in the custody battle / 50 be that I had with my significant other. She had guided me step by step throughout the whole entire process, any questions or comments or worries that I had she answered them all in a timely manner she was a wonderful person to have on my side!

To Whomever Posted this Review: I am so glad that my office was able to help you in your child custody and 50B matters. We never really know what impact we have or impression we make on other people or the effect we have on their lives. I am grateful to know that the impact and effect were more positive than negative for you.

STRESS
I HAD THE PLEASURE OF MEETING CONSTANCE LOWE WHEN SHE CHECKED INTO A HOTEL I WAS MANAGING TO STUDY FOR HER EXAM, WHAT DEDICATION I THOUGHT BECAUSE SHE DID HAVE A FAMILY AT HOME, BUT THEY UNDERSTOOD THIS IS IMPERATIVE . I FOUND MYSELF NEEDING INFO ON A VERY CLOSE FRIEND THAT WAS IN A HALFWAY HOUSE FOR SUBSTANCE ABUSE. KNOWING A SUBSTANCE ABUSER CAN BE VERY UNTRUTHFUL UNDER THE INFLUENCE I REACHED OUT TO ATTORNEY LOWE FOR ASSISTANCE. WITH IN NO TIME I HAD BEFORE ME EVERYTHING I NEEDED AND THEN SOME WITH A FEE I WAS TOTALLY HAPPY WITH. ATTORNEY LOWE IS DEDICATED TO GIVE YOU 100% AND IT DOESN'T MATTER YOUR RACE, GENDER, OR RELIGION. BEING AFRICAN AMERICAN I TRUST HER TOTALLY THAT SHE AND HER OFFICE WOULD REPRESENT EVERYONE EQUALLY.

Ms. Lowe loves her job
I call about a dss visit about my kids and she talked to me for 43 minutes. Ms. Lowe was extremely helpful and helped ease my concerns. She even sent me helpful links to deal with the situation. I’d hire her and recommend you do also.
Response from Constance Lowe June 9, 2019
Thank you for the positive review. It is heartening to know that I was able to put your mind at ease regarding the DSS visit. I hope that the visit went well and that DSS found your home to be safe and suitable for your children.

I found myself in a pinch as my parents got older. My Father was sick and I was trying my best to get funeral arraignments, burial plots etc taken care of. Because the town Cemetery is in such a mess and they do not know were people are buried and not buried. Or ancestors that phased lots and never used them are just sitting there. The town is not putting forth the effort to contact the heirs to let the know that the have plots! Attorney Constance Lowe took my case and did lots of research to prove that my husband was the other of three plots. After calls to the town, research and studing the NCGS and City laws for days on end. Attorney Lowe was able to type up the papers I needed to insure my mother and father would have there plots. My family will forever be grateful for her long hours of reading up on each section of the laws NCGS, City of Hillsborough and Town Cemetery rules (cause they all differ). Bottom line my father got the plot he wanted and so did my mother. She was very personable about my problem. Diligent in keeping in touch with me about what stage we were at or what stage we had not reached. She and her team work well together. Since I was caring for my parents she was very understanding about meeting after hours and times that best met my schedule. I would use her again and I most definitely advise anyone to contact her for services. At least see if she can help because she is so straight forward if she was unable too handle your case. I feel she would be honest and say that she could not. Thanks attorney Lowe!

EXCELLENT EXCELLENT
As a father who is proceeding pro se after spending an excessive amount of funds on attorneys, she was very beneficial and straight forward. She answered all of my questions, she was patient and explained it to me in "dummy proof." Pro se representatives often do not understand legal terminology and process. However, she answered all of my questions as if she were taking on the case herself. Thanks again

Alimony Won
Ms Lowe was my attorney for my alimony case in 2013. She was very helpful and was available for my numerous questions, calls and emails! She helped me sort out my fears as to what to expect from the hearing. She made clear to me my goals that were attainable and what were not. She was very knowledgable and professional, but most importantly to me was that she treated me like a person, not just a paying client. I believe I was awarded alimony because of her hard work and her genuine care for me as a person. I am grateful I found her, as my actual divorce lawyer was none of the above, thus forcing me to find another lawyer to complete this last part of that process. I was looking for an honest, knowledgable, helpful but diligent lawyer who would help me get the results I desparately needed. Someone who would work with me not just for me... I found Ms Lowe, who got me those results needed and consider her an absolute God-send. But even if the results would have been different, after seeing her work, I would still go to her again because of her character,integrity and diligence. I consider her my lawyer now and recommend her to you. I also welcome the chance to thank Ms Lowe publicly. Thank you.

PersonalI zed Service
Attorney Constance Lowe has represented me in a foreclosure case where she paid close attention to my argument and won the case against a large company with big name lawyers. She has since offered advice and helped with unrelated matters, always with personalized service. I recommend her highly.

Professional and highly driven to help her clients
I have used Attorney Constance Lowe for many different services within the last year. She has assisted me in my Equitable Distribution case as well as Family law issues. Attorney Lowe will give 100% to help you with your case or issues that require a professional consultation. Many attorneys tell you anything they think you want to hear in order for you to retain their services. This is where Attorney Lowe guides you in the direction that is in your best interest. Her honestly and compassion far exceeds any other attorney that I have used in the past. Feel confident that she will work for you and your rights within the law.

Traffic ticket resolution satisfactory
Attorney Lowe was wonderful. She was kind, helpful, extremely informative, gave excellent explanations of processes, options, and outcomes, and charged reasonable rates. She listened to me and took note during the consult, and subsequently was very on the ball when I asked her to represent me. There was an error in the process, but it was not her fault and she had already taken care of it by the time I learned of it. She kept me very up to date throughout the process and gave quick but thorough responses to emails. I would recommend her and I would return to her for representation.

Unhappy client that did not get services paid for
If you are interested in hiring a attorney run from this lady! She asked for our money upfront to take on a custody matter! First of all she has to referred to statue book to answer any questions you have because she's not knowledgeable about the law! On day of court she was late for court which didn't look good from the judges view. During the case she called the defendant by the wrong name which clearly shows she was not prepared for our case at all. Found in contempt of court for something she told us to do! Then when we called her out about the contempt issue she decides to pull off our case with no explanation! Want some not all our money back since she withdrew from our case. She responded with she had so many hours in this case but couldn't even get defendent's name correct! No invoices to show how our money was spent nothing! So I would seriously look in opposite direction from Mrs Lowe when hiring an attorney!
