Lowney named Mass. Victim Assistance director

Posted 9/24/12

BOSTON – Liam Lowney, a victim-service provider and advocate, has been appointed executive director of the Mass. Office for Victim Assistance.

Lowney, graduate of Emerson College, most recently served as the chief of Victim Witness Services at Attorney General Martha Coakley’s office, where he was responsible for annual planning, policy and program development, and advised Coakley on the impact of certain litigation and policy on victims of crime.

Before joining Coakley’s office, Lowney worked within the Victim Services Bureau of the Middlesex District Attorney’s Office. There, he advocated for and supported victims of violent crime who were involved with prosecutions with the office and worked to address their housing, mental health, safety and financial needs.

While at the Middlesex office, Lowney was awarded the September 11th Award, which is given annually to an individual who demonstrates extraordinary courage, bravery and selflessness in a way that is “reminiscent of the first responders” to the Sept. 11 tragedy. •
