Formed in Orlando with the goal of becoming the area’s best business law firm, Lowndes, Drosdick, Doster, Kantor & Reed, P.A. began with four partners who were engaged primarily in a burgeoning real estate practice in 1969. Over the years, the firm has grown with the Central Florida community into a full-service law firm which serves statewide, national and international clients from its offices on the shores of Lake Eola in downtown Orlando. Lowndes, Drosdick, Doster, Kantor & Reed, P.A. also maintains a second office next to Orlando City Hall on Orange Avenue.

While real property practice remains an integral component of the firm, the dynamic needs of its clients have enabled the firm to assemble a full complement of experienced lawyers who practice in every area of the profession.

The law firm is a founding member of Meritas, the world’s largest alliance of independent business and commercial law firms. Meritas’ network provides access to competent legal counsel throughout the United States and around the world.

Lowndes, Drosdick, Doster, Kantor & Reed, P.A. is widely recognized for its commitment and service to the community through involvement with civic organizations and pro bono legal work. The firm’s attorneys participate in leadership positions as volunteers in more than 200 charitable organizations.
