Recommendations

Joe Vega & Keith Jr. Davis – HamSquad Inc. – [August 24th, 2023]

“My company hired Lowe & Associates to represent us in an erroneous lawsuit that was brought up by a client that breached contract services. Steven and his team were very professional and responsive, and they explained the road along the way. I would like to highlight Aleksandra Hilvert and her attention to detail, professionalism, and passion for what she does. You can tell she truly enjoys what she does. We are extremely happy with the results Steven and his firm were able to achieve in getting the case dismissed in our favor!”

George Ford – Pet Media Plus – [2022]

“Our company cannot thank Lowe and Associates (and specifically, Aleksandra Hilvert and Steven Lowe) enough for their hard work on several of the cases we had them work on.  They are FAST, FAIR, and RESPONSIVE.  Getting things DONE should be their Motto. Communication is key when discussing legal issues and this firm has it all worked out and setting the bar very high for others.  They kept us updated through the whole process and we came out much further ahead than even our optimistic expectations.”

Scott Donley, CEO – Good Deed Entertainment – [2022]

“Steven, Aleksandra and the whole team did a phenomenal job of getting done what we needed in an efficient and professional manner. Would highly recommend them!”

Kirsten Argonino, Managing Director – Ammolite, Inc. – [2020]

“I, along with the team at Ammolite Inc., want to thank Steven Lowe and Aleksandra Hilvert for their help in resolving a dispute with former clients related to our company’s production of various music videos. The lawyers at Lowe & Associates resolved the dispute in a timely manner with their effective strategy and negotiation skills. As a boutique media production company, it is paramount to have a solid team stand by you when legal issues arise. We are very pleased with the results.”

Russ Ward – [2020]

“As a creative independent producer, I came to Lowe and Associates with an idea theft case a few years ago. Steven Lowe and Aleksandra Hilvert of the firm proved to be unpretentious and great listeners, giving valuable advice and options. They were honest about the possible outcomes of my issues and the costs involved. Both Steven and Aleksandra had integrity while working closely with me. I always felt that they put me and my case first. There were no runarounds or attempts to convince me that spending more meant better results. They are moral, ethical and smart, very smart and in my opinion the very best at what they do. Really. I could not more highly recommend these attorneys.”

Linton Bergsen, Author

“Aleksandra is a professional in every sense. Her advice is sound, well thought out and very strategic. The issue I had was discussed and executed immediately with all relevant facts addressed specifically with the appropriate tone and legal references. She is ethical and concerned about the best outcome for her client and not just a fee to be collected.”

Reid Taylor, Director

“I recently wrapped production on a small, independent feature film and would be remiss for overseeing Aleksandra’s contribution. Despite the lack of funds available for an attorney to work on the production in it’s entirety, Aleksandra could see beyond that and offered to do some transactional legal work, pro bono. To her credit, lack of compensation wasn’t a factor, nor did it remove her motivation from the equation; she expeditiously gave her insight on the topics at hand, which – to me – indicates a passion and commitment to the work itself.

In summation, I could not be more pleased with the results and I look forward to working with her on future endeavors.”

Kelly Sneed – Project West Media

“Aleksandra was not only professional, courteous and knowledgeable, but proactive in our quest for a great settlement. In fact, she would suggest offers that were far better than what we “thought” we good offers. She was always in contact with us and it did not matter what time it was she would always answer our emails in a timely and concise manner. She is one of the few attorneys that we have met that really shows an interest in your business and the situation you are dealing with. We are so glad that were referred to her and look forward to using her services in the future. We cannot thank her enough for her great work on our case.”

Ashley S., Producer

“Aleksandra helped me determine the best legal way to move forward on a film project dealing with Life Rights. She was easy to speak with and friendly though direct. I recommend seeking her professional advice if you are in the entertainment industry and looking to protect your idea.”

Chuck Krall, Photographer

“Aleksandra was kind and observant but still exhibited professionalism with her matter of fact legal dialog. Her communication skills were above par with any other lawyer I have ever had to deal with. In my case. all matters were able to be initiated by direct Phone and Email correspondence so that there was fast and direct communication added by a very diligent staff at LOWE & ASSOCIATES. For anyone who might have a copyright infringement situation Aleksandra is a good lawyer to deal with.”

Derek Emery – Aaero Sweet

“Aleksandra Hilvert has represented my company multiple times over the years and each time there was a successful outcome. She is a highly skilled attorney and I would recommend her for any business or personal legal issues.”

Hedda Muskat, Producer

“Aleksandra’s sensibility and gift for eloquent speaking, and brilliance as a writer & litigator, makes me lucky to have her as my lead attorney. She worked tirelessly through the night, never taking the pressure off the other side! She stood before some very powerful lawyers in the entertainment industry…and she wasn’t intimidated or bullied by them. Aleksandra is truly a star in the making!”
