We believe in the value of each human being, and that everyone, regardless of age, health, or capacity, deserves the best life possible.
Each attorney at Hickman & Lowder chose to practice law because it allows us a meaningful way to advocate for people whose lives are complicated by special concerns and frustrated by an impersonal, imperfect system.
You are doing important and challenging work right now, in this moment in your life. It may make you feel unbalanced, unsure, and alone.
We have been down that path, too. We know it inside and out. And at the same time, we recognize and honor that your path is unique.
