The fourth largest city in Massachusetts, Lowell has a population of about 108,861 residents.

Culturally, Lowell, MA has had some notable success in landing features in songs, novels, and films—“The Fighter,” starring Massachusetts-local Mark Wahlberg, was based on famous boxer Mickey Ward and the prominent boxing culture among Lowell’s working class.

I hired Mr. Duncan to deal with a very sensitive issue that my daughter had. Since the first contact, I had a very good impression of him. He transmitted confidence and appeared to know exactly what to do. I called and emailed him many times, he was polite and comprehensible with the anxiety of a father and appeared to know every step to solve the case. I strongly recommend Mr. Duncan. Flavio Lajoia

I am forever grateful to all the staff at this firm, but in particular, Ms. Shah, Mr. Zalkind and Mr. Silverglate. They represented my son who was being sought for extradition to Scotland. The case took years to fight, covering new legal ground, setting precedence. But each one of these legal eagles went above and beyond the duty of office... Suzanne D.
