About Our Practice

With over 40 years of experience grounded in dedication and care, Dow Law Group has grown from humble beginnings into a pillar of the Concord, Massachusetts, community. Built from passion and perseverance by founder John F. Dow, the firm stands today on John’s commitment to serving clients with an open heart.

John began as a solo practitioner, offering his legal skills to assist local residents. Though the work was tireless, he found joy in helping families and individuals solve legal problems and move forward. Client by client, case by case, John’s practice grew as his reputation for combining legal expertise with meaningful relationships spread.

Decades later, John remains fervent about maintaining the tight-knit relationships from those early days. At the core is his belief that the law should serve people, not the other way around. This drives him to bring on attorneys that match his student-centric and compassionate spirit. Many clients feel like family after working with John through difficult situations with care and wisdom by their side.

Today, Dow Law Group continues to uphold John’s founding vision: to provide education and comfort while solving complex legal needs. They spend time understanding each unique client's goal. With decades of combined experience in litigation, appeals, probate, real estate, and more, they can easily guide clients through complicated processes. Yet what clients remember most is feeling heard and cared for at every step.

John has built Dow Law Group into a firm that marries legal excellence with heart, as he did from the start. If they cannot directly assist with a matter, they pay forward the care given to them over the years by thoughtfully referring clients to trusted attorneys. When faced with a legal need, rest assured you’ll have compassionate counsel and artful expertise on your side.
