Attorney Profile

An award-winning litigator and partner at Harris Lowry Manton LLP, Stephen G. Lowry focuses his practice exclusively on personal injury and wrongful death litigation, assisting clients throughout the greater Atlanta metropolitan area, Savannah and across Georgia who have been harmed by the negligence of other persons or entities. The types of cases that he has been involved in include those arising out of defective consumer products, truck and other motor vehicle accidents, medical malpractice, airplane crashes and automotive defects.

Some of the representative results that Mr. Lowry has obtained include a $40 million jury award in a case involving a person who was hit by an impaired pickup truck driver and a $4.8 million jury award to a couple and their children who were shot in a road rage incident.

Mr. Lowry was also lead counsel in a nursing home neglect case that resulted in an award of $8.5 million in compensatory damages and $35 million in punitive damages. His fellow professionals have taken notice of his successful track record, as evidenced by his receipt of a 10.0 "Superb" peer review rating through Avvo. Mr. Lowry has also been named to The National Trial Lawyers: Top 100, and he has been elected to the American Board of Trial Advocates. Admitted to practice in Georgia, he is also admitted to practice before the U.S. District Courts for the Middle, Northern and Southern Districts of Georgia and the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 11th Circuit.

A passionate advocate for individuals who have been harmed by the actions of others, Mr. Lowry has won numerous top 10 verdicts in Georgia, including a $43.5 million jury verdict for Terhune v. Forum Group Corp et al., the state’s largest judgment on record against a nursing home facility; a $40 million jury verdict for Jenkins v. Lambert, the #1 largest jury verdict in Georgia for 2016; and a $11.5 million verdict for Bilbrey v. United States of America, one of the largest verdicts ever secured against the United States government.

Mr. Lowry began his career working alongside Joe C. Freeman Jr., a legendary Atlanta trial lawyer known for defending the Eli Lilly pharmaceutical company in suicide cases, representing JCPenney in flammable pajama cases and serving as national counsel for Chrysler.

Early in his career, Mr. Lowry handled both plaintiff and defense cases, but after he represented the family of a six-year-old girl who suffered severe burns on 80% of her body due to a polyurethane foam mattress, he knew he wanted to dedicate his career to righting the wrongs caused by big corporations and defective products. He is a passionate advocate for clients and has a strong track record of winning cases against major corporations.

Mr. Lowry excels at product liability cases and tried Zakrocki v. Ford Motor Company case, securing a $10.6 million verdict in New Jersey after demonstrating that his client’s Ford Explorer suffered from a defect that the auto manufacturer knew about and attempted to conceal. He also demonstrated Ford’s negligence in Mundy v. Ford Motor Company, which resulted in a federal investigation of the company and an impressive $40 million jury verdict.

Also focusing on catastrophic injury and wrongful death cases, Mr. Lowry puts his heart and soul into getting the best results for clients, often securing justice in tragic circumstances. In Allen v. Consolidated OB-GYN, Mr. Lowry successfully advocated for a woman whose death was the direct result of post-birth complications and lengthy treatment delays, securing a $4.3 million jury verdict.

Mr. Lowry's highly competitive nature and his unique ability to persuade jurors and to connect with clients has led to many victories in the courtroom and beyond. He has also earned respect from his peers for his exceptional trial work, including being named to Super Lawyer’s annual list of the top Georgia lawyers since 2007. In fact, Mr. Lowry has been named to the Georgia Super Lawyers’ prestigious Top 100 list for the last two years.

Mr. Lowry's impressive record as a plaintiff’s trial lawyer and as a tireless advocate for clients earned him the American Association for Justice’s illustrious F. Scott Baldwin Most Outstanding Trial Lawyer Award in 2009. In 2011, he was chosen as one of 14 lawyers for the Fulton County Daily Report’s On the Rise. In 2014, he was honored as the only lawyer to be inducted twice into VerdictSearch’s Georgia Verdicts Hall of Fame in the categories of product liability and medical malpractice.

Mr. Lowry currently serves in leadership positions in numerous organizations, including the Board of Governors of American Association of Justice, Executive Committee of Georgia Trial Lawyers Association, Green Law Board of Directors and Board of Directors of the Southern Trial Lawyers Association. He is also a Past President of the Savannah Trial Lawyers Association.

After receiving a Bachelor of Arts in History and Economics, magna cum laude, from the University of Maryland Baltimore County, Mr. Lowry attended Northwestern School of Law of Lewis & Clark College and was awarded his Juris Doctor, cum laude, in 1998. While in law school, he was an associate editor of the Lewis & Clark Law Review and graduated third in his class.
