Professional
I spoke to Mr. Steiger and although he did not take my case he was at least willing to talk to me. That is huge! He is extremely polite and professional. If he decides to take your case consider yourself lucky.

Pleased and grateful
I finally got to writing the review. When no one wanted to help he was there to take on my case. Lowell was attentive and a good listener. He always had a, “we will get this resolved” attitude. Always answered my questions and compromised. Very pleased with his service and care.

Lowell Steiger was definitely the best attorney for my car accident case!
I was rear-ended while driving my car. After the accident, I was in pain, I was concerned about my car, I was busier than ever at work and just completely stressed across the board. I was totally unfamiliar with attorneys or the legal process and saw TV commercial after TV commercial from all the huge firms promising the moon and felt totally overwhelmed and didn't want to make a phone call to any of those law firms. It was stressing me out even more. Through a friend, I was referred to Lowell Steiger and from the very first phone conversation, Lowell put me at ease and gave me an overview of how the process would begin and I knew I was in good hands. The next day, I spoke with Lowell's case manager Eric and he was very thorough in getting all details about the accident and was very easy to communicate with and that confirmed I made the right choice by calling Lowell. Lowell is honest and a "straight-shooter" and explained upfront that this was not going to be a quick process and I just needed to focus on getting better and he would handle the rest. And he did. After many medical treatments, physical therapy, etc. I slowly got better over time because I was consistent and followed my doctor's recommended treatment plan. I am almost back to living the life I had before the accident and can't believe after about 9 months of hard work and perseverance (both me and him), Lowell won the settlement that was deserved! Lowell and his team are tenacious, they are easy to communicate with, they had my back through the entire journey and did an excellent job in settling my case against the other party's insurance company. I am very happy with the results and am so glad I called Lowell to handle my case. Thank you Lowell!!

Our Story Is Co-Founder
Lowell is an amazing lawyer! A dear friend of mine saw a video of me, when I was stuck in an elevator with my son. He immediately referred me to Lowell. Lowell was everything my friend said he was and more. He is not like most lawyers. He is very hands on. He always contacted me directly. I did not have to go through gate keepers to speak with him. He always responded to me in a timely manner. Not only that, he attentively listened to my story. He was never hurried or never rushed me. I have dealt with other lawyers in the past, and they are rushed and do not seem like they care or have time. I have heard cases like mine can be hard to settle. I shocked when Lowell said, he would represent me. He was confident it would settle. He made sure I received the proper care. He checked in periodically to see how I was doing. He always told me what to expect. He was always very transparent. A little over one year, my case was settled. I was pleased with the outcome. I plan on referring my friends and family to Lowell.

Mr. Steinger and his team were amazing and professional with litigating my case. They constantly kept me updated on the progress of my case and I appreciate all they did to bring my case to closure. At the final arbitration phase he did not back down and negotiated a settlement that was appropriate.

When I called to inquire about my case I was surprised that Mr. Steiger answered the phone and helped me. Although he couldn’t help me due to the statued of limitations, at least I know. Thank you Mr. Steiger!
Response from Lowell Steiger October 25, 2021
It was a pleasure speaking with you -- that's what I'm here for. Whether or not I can take someone's case I always want to hear your story. Hopefully I can help but, if not, I will try to connect you with someone who can. It never hurts to ask and getting answers helps move you closer to resolution and closure.

Lowell and his team are a class act. I was very skeptical to hire a personal injury lawyer after having a poor experience years ago with another attorney. He is warm, smart, sincere, and relies on the truth. I highly recommend Lowell Steiger.

Knowledge and Compassion
I was fortunate enough to meet Lowell as my neighbor. I never expected to need his services but when I got into a car accident, he was the first person I called (all passengers were ok). You think you know what to do, but you don't. The shock, the aggravation, the hassle all take over. Lowell walked me through each and every steps. His expertise and compassion were formidable and I knew he had my best interest in mind and that I was taken care of. Thank you to Lowell!

Excellent Work Ethic
My son was the front-seat passenger in an auto accident with two other vehicle occupants. The driver of the vehicle in which my son was a passenger, had minimal insurance coverage as did the at-fault driver of the other auto. My son was injured, though not life-threatening, and required medical attention for some time after the incident. With the limited auto insurance resources available, Lowell was able to secure medical payments for my son's treatment and care, and settle the case timely with money to my son and the two others in the car he was in.

Amazing attortney I was very impressed with outcome of my case.
I had a serious fall in my building and I was referred to Lowell Steiger,Esq. by a friend who was also an attorney. From the beginning everything was explained very clearly. We conversed on a regular basis, I never felt neglected or ignored. Every step of the way was clearly explained. Lowell is a wonderful, caring attorney and he did fight for me. My case was not an easy case by any means and I suffered from many injuries. I would say I have never met a better, caring attorney who really listened and answered all my questions. I would highly recommend Mr.Steiger. I felt he went above and beyond for me,as I was quite disabled and suffered many difficulties, struggles. I felt understood and Mr.Steiger made me comfortable with the entire process. He is a compassionate person, which is rare in this field. I never felt like a number. I felt true concern for my case and personal attention was given, never rushed. My settlement was higher than I imagined it would be for a complicated case. Again, I would highly recommend Lowell Steiger,Esq. He is one of the best attornies, I have ever had handle a case with such sincerity.

WHERE DO I BEGIN???? SUCH A REMARKABLE ATTORNEY
If you are looking for a astute, ingenious, educated, patient, honest, resourceful PI Attorney, look no further this is your best choice. I can not begin to tell you how I looked for the correct attorney to assist me after I was rear ended while driving on the clock for Lyft. I ended up with a very bad back injury and Lowell MADE SURE I WENT TO THE BEST PHYSICIANS FOR TREATMENT!!! Me working also in the medical field truly appreciated him having knowledge of excellent providers to accommodate my injury. It was a very trying experience to say the least having to deal with the insurance company. Lowell had no issue with making sure I was updated with all the necessary dialogue he had with the insurance company.(let me not mention they were not the best cup of tea) He handled them with such professionalism and grace but was definitely concise. My case was a very lengthy and painful process mentally and physically. Lowell definitely went above and beyond required measures as my attorney to accommodate ALL my ISSUES!!! There is not enough space on this platform for me to document how pleased I am with the result of my case. Under distasteful circumstances beyond mine or his control my case settled and he did his best to make sure it was reasonable after a long awaited time. I pray I don't ever have to call him for a auto accident again but God forbid if so he would DEFINITLEY BE MY FIRST CHOICE.!!! Just a all around great human being. Lowell thank you so much for kind heart and excellent professionalism! This world need more attorneys like you. I wish you nothing but GODS BEST IN THE UPCOMING NEW YEAR! STAY SAFE AND CONTINUED SUCCESS FOR YOUR PRACTICE!!! Respectfully Submitted!!! T.Smith

Best Attorney Ever
If you have been injured in a car accident and don’t know what to do I can tell you from personal experience, aside from contacting your insurance carrier and filing a police report, calling the Law Office of Lowell Steiger should be the next thing on your list. You never know what sort of issues you can run into after a car accident, especially here in Southern California where the insurance status of other drivers can often be questionable. You need someone who understands the insurance world to get you the maximum amount of coverage and quickly. I have been involved in two accidents that were not my fault and I have gone to Lowell both times and have been completely satisfied with the education he has provided me along with the great customer service he and his assistant Eric provide. Your main concern if you are injured should be your health and recovery, not chasing down someone to cover your medical bills. Lowell knows exactly what to do to get you into a doctor and begin rehabilitation immediately with no out of pocket expenses from you. In my case, Lowell was able to arrange physical therapy and chiropractic rehabilitation with no up front cost to me. It is all taken care of in the final settlement. This is just one of the benefits of seeking legal representation for an auto accident claim where you have been injured. Not only is it a benefit to have a lawyer arrange the physical therapy, but in the event there is an issue with the other parties insurance when it comes to settling, having a lawyer puts you at an advantage of having someone who knows all of the tricks the insurance company can play during final negotiations to offer the least amount as possible. The insurance companies are in the business of preserving their bottom line. They do not have concern for your recovery or out of pocket expenses, that is the simple reality and you need to know the rules of the game and have someone on your side to be an advocate for you. Lowell is that advocate. I have always had my questions, concerns and phone calls returned the same day or next business day. It is important to know that you can ask any question and you will receive a genuine and friendly response. I ask a lot of questions and I never felt like I was a burden to Lowell. Along with his great legal expertise, Lowell takes the time to check in with you and really follows up to make sure all is well. He is almost like a friend in that regard and to be able to say a lawyer is a friend is a true compliment to Lowell! Lawyers can get a bad reputation just because of stereotyping but Lowell is none of that. He is a great guy who does a fantastic job and cares about his clients. He will be an advocate for you and will make sure that regardless of the cost or timeframe that you are as healed as possible before settling. Lowell is a true gem and I would encourage you to look no further if you are seeking representation.

Best lawyer I have ever worked with
I only write reviews when something is VERY good or VERY bad. In Lowell's case, I can't say enough good things. From his likable personality to his ability to aggressively defend his clients, Lowell is the best lawyer, and one of the downright best people I have ever worked with. The case Lowell represented me on was the third time I've needed representation and the first time I ever felt like I was properly taken care of. If I ever need legal representation in the future, I know who to turn to first.

Heartfelt, Caring, There for you
I was recommended to Lowell by a close friend of mine. I was involved in a very bizarre traffic accident case and Lowell guided me through every step of the way and took his time to explain what would happen, how it would happen, and why it would happen. This wasn't a max limit payout as we eventually settled for far less than we both anticipated but both agreed it was best to move forward, but, always counseled me through the pro's and con's of our decisions. I would highly recommend Lowell to represent you. He's very personable and likeable professional. It's hard to find someone who really cares about you, AND your case especially when its critical your protected. His staff goes beyond the call of duty to answer questions and are also very responsive in email and phone. 2 Thumbs up!

Great Lawyer!
Lowell and his staff are amazing. I was in an auto accident and seeked Lowell's services based on a referral. He got me more than anticipated for auto damage and a bonus for medical expenses. I never expected anything , seeing it was a relatively tiny case (compared to what he's used to doing). But, he treated me as any other client and fought for me! I would highly reccomend Lowell and his staff.
