About Richard

Learn Richard’s areas of practice.

Hi! I'm Rick Lowell. Following a stint as a Navy submariner, I went to law school and then began working with insurance companies, representing those who allegedly caused injury to others. Soon I expanded my practice to help those who have been injured by others. I am able to apply the knowledge & experience obtained in my insurance defense work to maximize my injury clients' recoveries. Visit and please call me to discuss your legal concerns. I look forward to helping you!

Very Capable
Hired Rick to complete various legal documents, i.e. Will and Living Will. Had meeting to discuss my intentions. One week later received the final draft. Quick and accurate. He knows what he's doing. Would use him again.

A Highly Effective Litigator
I strongly recommend Richard to any client needing competent and highly skilled reprentation. Richard and I represented co-defendants in a tragic wrongful death action. The case provided many challenges on issues of liability and damages. Complicating the Richard's defense efforts was the public and media scrutiny surrounding the entire litigation. Richard handled all aspects of the case professionally and never losing sight of his primary objective -- represent the best interests of his client at all times.

Fabulous lawyer
My case was a difficult and emotional case and during the whole time they were putting the case together, they very professional and kind and made my healing process much easier to deal with.

Incredible attorney.
Rick is the most fabulous attorney I have known. Additionally, he is a great person also. He helped with my personal injury suit and got me more than I expected. He held my hand through the whole process so there wouldn't be any surprises. Since then Rick and his firm have been our attorneys for all legal matters. I trust him implicitly.

Not there?
I used to work for Rick's partners, and felt that he was pretty competent and trustworthy. However, Rick has not acknowledged my email in any way. I realize that there may be some kind of a problem with this service rather than an intentional failure to respond. Just ignoring a contact would not be professional in my opinion, So, my vote is still out due to lack of information but I will put up an overall rating since this service requires it. Hopefully there is an explanation.

Response from Richard Lowell February 11, 2016
I wish this poster had left his/her name. I do not recall receiving an email from any such person. Certainly not a personal injury client of mine. Undoubtedly, a former employee of a partner of mine would have been able to call. I'm sorry he/she felt ignored.
