About Edwin

Learn Edwin’s areas of practice.

Few attorneys have enjoyed the wide range of legal experience that fills out Ed Lowry’s resume.  During the first 7 years of his practice, his work included such areas as family law, real estate, bankruptcy, personal injury and business law.  But for the last 27 plus years, he has concentrated in the areas of Estate Planning and Probate.  And with good reason.


“Estate planning is one of the most professionally satisfying areas of law”, says Lowry.  “When done properly, it can give clients an enormous sense of gratification and peace of mind.  By emphasizing plans that actually work, we help clients preserve and protect their assets from taxes, probate expenses and creditors.  We can also make sure that a client’s home and life savings are not lost to nursing home expenses.  We work hard to streamline the settlement process so beneficiaries can receive their inheritance quickly and without undue expense.”
A public speaker, Ed frequently presents workshops on estate planning.  In his workshops, Mr. Lowry explains in layman’s terms how trusts can be a great planning option for protecting assets for yourself or your family.

Ed is a native of Louisville and obtained his education at the University of Louisville.
Ed graduated With Highest Honors in earning his Bachelor’s degree in History from the University of Louisville in 1976.  He also attended law school at the University of Louisville and graduated second in his class.  He was admitted to practice law in the State of Kentucky in 1979, and has been in private practice since that time.  He is member of the Probate and Estate Planning Section of the Louisville Bar Association.
Ed is also a member of the National Network of Estate Planning Attorneys, which is an organization of attorneys from across the nation who are dedicated to doing Estate Planning a different and better way.  Many of the members of this organization are recognized experts in specialized areas in Estate Planning and are available as consultants to Mr. Lowry.  Mr. Lowry has been on the faculty of the National Network for over 10 years.
Ed has co-authored a book on Trust Settlement and has taught trust settlement to attorneys at national conventions.  He also has a special interest in estate planning for retirement plans, and has authored “New IRS Rules for Retirement Plan Distributions”, which was published by the Louisville Bar Association BarBriefs in June, 2001.
Ed is married and has 3 children.  He enjoys playing golf and tennis.
You are invited to call or email Ed with your questions or comments.  There is no charge for your first phone call or consultation.

Very pleased
Ed Lowry, Jr. prepared our estate plan. We had a number of meetings with him. He was so thorough and up to date on changes in the laws. He explained and educated us on all the specifics of our plan. We continue to meet with him periodically to make sure our plan is up to date. Couldn't be more pleased. I would highly recommend Ed to prepare your wills and trusts.
