About Us


In 1976, Wade & Lowe was founded on a commitment to provide reliable legal services for insurance and corporate clients. Over the years, we have greatly broadened the variety of legal services we provide. Our clients now include public entities, insurance companies, service corporations and common interest developments. Our client representation takes us to all counties in California. We maintain offices in Los Angeles County, Orange County, and the Inland Empire.

Although Wade & Lowe has grown from six attorneys to nearly 20, we have never lost sight of our founding ideals. We still carefully guard and nurture our reputation for honesty, integrity and quality. We place our clients’ interests at heart.

Members of Wade & Lowe are active in local and state bar associations as well as trade and industry associations. A number of our attorneys have been elected to the American Board of Trial Advocates, a nationwide organization whose criteria for membership include extensive trial experience, and excellence in the courtroom and the respect of their peers.

The firm was recently known as Crandall, Wade & Lowe until founding partner, James L. Crandall was appointed a judge for the Orange County Superior Court.
