Mr. Lowther was referred to me and I could not be more thankful! He helped me through one of the most difficult experiences of my life. He listened, gave recommendations and never made me feel belittled. Mr. Lowther did not just treat me like a client, but rather a human with valued feelings. He handled what could have potentially been a life changing situation with minimal assistance from me. I never had to set foot in a courtroom. I can not express enough how grateful I am that he listened, cared, and took my other life circumstances into consideration. He was in constant contact with me with not only updates on my case, but reassurance that everything would be fine. I would recommend him to any and everyone!

Brilliant Federal Criminal Defense Attorney
I have worked with Mr. Lowther for many years, and I consider him one of the best federal criminal defense attorneys in the country. His deep knowledge of federal criminal procedure, case strategy & application of the United States Sentencing Guidelines set him apart from other attorneys in the field of federal criminal practice. Mr. Lowther’s professionalism, knowledge, and enthusiasm for representing those under investigation and charged with federal crimes is unmatched.

Simply Phenomenal
Joshua Lowther is simply phenomenal from start to finish. We could not have had a more knowledgeable and considerate attorney for our friend. The whole legal team has been responsive, professional, thoughtful, and empathic throughout the entire process. They took our case when it was already damaged and were able to win in the appeal court. Joshua was always able to think two steps ahead. I would say he is a "walking encyclopedia," a very sharp, quick thinker, and a fearless fighter for the best outcome. I would recommend without hesitation Joshua and his team to anyone who needs help.

Cost effective genuine representation!
My Lowther took my case out of sight out mind looking back when he first responded I was suprised and reluctant to have come across such a person with confidence he took my case(s)on head strong. With his team and himself we set out a battle vs the government that I thought there was little to chance of such a possible outcome. I from the anonymous side, see this other review and can only telll you how easy it is to manipulate one or many things behind a computer now a days. Mr Lowther and his team are highly knowledgeable and intelligent even when things hit the fan I knew I had the right team on my side. To say the least the outcome was far greater then what I expected. Mr Lowther took my case out of sure genuine interest and generosity. Would use and recommend to many.

star only review
Dealing with a public defender is difficult when going through the process. It bad someone in my situation get easier sentence for capital murder from the state than for a non violent crime. someone hires someone to kill their husband and gets ten years and some one with no violence on their record gets double. Anybody would be looking for a deal.

Wonderful Lawyer- Answers in a timely and professional manner
I contacted Mr. Lowther regarding an issue I encountered while abroad about a Federal matter back in the States. Mr. Lowther answered in a timely and professional manner. Mr. Lowther is knowledgable.

Excellent Attorney, Very Knowledgeable (Saved My Life)
Joshua is an excellent attorney, I was facing possible federal prison time and Joshua was able to get me a non-custodial sentenced. Joshua truly knows the inner working of the federal justice system and there was no questions that Joshua could not answer in detail. Family and I were truly lucky to have found Joshua and have him represent us. Joshua did travel pretty far to work with me and never complaint about it, always glad to talk and help put me anxiety at ease. We will always be thankfully to Joshua for his hard work and support. Thank you forever.

Mr. Lowther is an outstanding lawyer. I had several consultations with other lawyers and chose Mr. Lowther. He is a very educated, honest, understanding lawyer who alleviated a lot of our concerns and worries. He handled everything for us all we had to do was show up. He let us know what was going on and were we stood with the case up to the end. He is a very down to earth lawyer who by the way is not a money hungry lawyer just trying to squeeze every last penny out of you. He worked with me and my husband thru our difficult time and showed care and concern for us even after our case was over. In my experience with him he surpasses the 5 star rating. If you are contemplating a lawyer give him a shot you won't regret it.

Words cannot describe the caliber of this attorney nor his compassion for the people that he represents.In July of 2009,I acquired Mr.Lowther's services for a serious case that i myself thought would surely get punished for.Mr.Lowther from the beginning explained to me my options on what could happen and what could not happen, within minutes of me explaining my case to him and his advice he gained my confidence and respect that allowed me to feel comfortable hiring him.i saw several attorny's during the past month, but none possed the compassion,understanding, and knowledge like Mr. Lowther.One of the key things that stuck out from this lawyer is that he was not like your typical lawyer,which usuallly see's there client as a pay check, he saw myself as a person who made a mistake.He stuck by me the whole time and always kept me inform to the tee.He was very easy to get a hold of and to this day I can still call him and ask him about advice.Even after my case was settled he still called to see how things where going with me and my family.There is nobody that is more knowledgable than this lawyer,trust my review i have dealt with a lot of them.During the time that i was being represented he assured me and kept his promises,he won't lie to you if it cannot happen he will tell you.By far the best lawyer I know.If you are a person in need of a sharp,smart, understanding lawyer,and someone with muscle this is your guy

Mr. Lowther is the BEST Lawyer. After several consultations with other Lawyers he was the most honest, down to earth, and affordable lawyer. This was our first time needing a lawyer and he took care of everyhting all we had to do was show up. He helped alleviate a lot of our concerns and make the process easier to cope with. He answered every question we had. Very understanding of our situation and not a money hungry lawyer like most. On a scale of 1-10 Mr. Lowther doesn't even fit into that scale he went above and beyond for us and we are truly grateful for his time, effort, understanding, and taking on our case. Trust me when I say this he is the best you can get. I never and I mean never write reviews about anyone or anything but I want anyone who is needing representation give him a shot you will not regret it.

""I have known Josh for the past nine years, and I have worked with him on numerous federal criminal matters. He possesses an almost encyclopedic knowledge of federal criminal law and procedure; he works well with his clients and other attorneys; and he is a gifted trial lawyer. Josh is a tireless and zealous advocate for those whom he represents. I look forward to working with him in the future.""
Criminal defense Attorney | Feb 15
Relationship: Opposing Counsel on matter
"Despite being a Gamecock, Josh Lowther is a fine lawyer and a fine man. I was an intern in a prosecutor's office when Josh first started out defending people and the Fourth Amendment. He was the living personification of any number of protagonists from John Grisham's novels. To my knowledge, Josh never sought the security of government employment nor did he ever slow down in his quest to become the fine lawyer he is. Josh has a presence. He's very much the man on top of his game in court. He's fearless, leaving no avenue unexplored (figuratively and literally), no matter the dangers. There's quite a few very "dangerous" places Josh has gone on behalf of his clients. Unlike many of us who'd just assume hear about where there was a shooting or robbery or something else awful, Josh will go there and talk to the witnesses himself and look for other witnesses unknown. If you need a lawyer with a presence, with skill, with determination and courage, you need Josh Lowther."

Relationship: Worked together on matter
"Simply put, Joshua Lowther is one of the best criminal defense lawyers practicing in federal court today. He is a natural in the courtroom, and he has a way with juries. What separates him from most other lawyers is his ability to identify the real issues at play and get in front of them. This proactive approach greatly benefits his clients. The government’s attorneys have tremendous respect for Mr. Lowther - they know he knows the law and will fight tooth and nail for his clients. In my experience, the courts also have a great deal of respect for Joshua based his legal acumen and professionalism. I’m a criminal defense lawyer and I’ve been in practice for over 15 years. Roughly one third of my practice is federal. In short, I know my way around a courtroom. Even now, when presented with a difficult issue, I will call Joshua and run it by him. If I were being prosecuted by the federal government or that the federal government was investigating me, I would call Mr Lowther."
