Mark Stephen Lowry, Esq.
Lowry Legal represents individuals charged or being investigated for state and federal crimes, and in the appellate courts should your case not end as expected. Available 24 hours a day 7 days a week to meet with you and answer your questions, I am dedicated to getting my client the best possible result. I have extensive jury trial experience and am well versed in appeals.
I focus my practice on state and federal criminal defense and appeals. As a solo practitioner I am able to give personal attention to each client and matter, often taking calls from clients and their family at night and on weekends. I understand questions do not just arise during business hours, so I pride myself in making sure my clients and their loved ones can speak with me whenever they need. There is a common belief that attorneys do not call their clients back, so a big part of my practice is dedicated to making sure everyone feels heard, is informed throughout their matter, and is included in deciding the direction of their case. I use a cloud-based software management system that allows every client and their loved ones online access 24/7 to their case, including being able to view, download and/or print every document I receive as part of the government’s discovery, and every document I file on behalf of my client. As well, if my client is in custody, I will consistently visit him or her and make sure they feel informed throughout their matter.
Whether you are facing a misdemeanor or capital felony, I understand this is life-altering, and therefore give every case my full attention and devotion to achieve the absolute best outcome possible. My first goal in every matter is to seek dismissal of the charges. If this is simply not possible, then I work hard to show the government through depositions and other investigatory steps there is reasonable doubt to their case, and either negotiate the best plea offer possible, or take the matter to trial. With over 70 criminal jury trials in my career I am very experienced at arguing reasonable doubt and therefore getting juries to acquit my clients.
In my off-time I enjoy spending time with my daughter, scuba diving, playing ice hockey, running, swimming, biking, and soaking in our beautiful beaches.

Client was charged with Possession of Cocaine after being arrested at the Seminole Hard Rock Casino. I was able to show that the officer did not have probable cause to search his backpack, forcing the State to dismiss the charge.
Client Name: D.M.
Citation: Grand Theft $10k-20k
Client owned a business and was accused of accepting payments and not fulfilling the jobs. She was charged with Grand Theft, which requires the State to prove my client had the intent to steal the money of her customers when she accepted the money. I was able to show her completed jobs during the same time period, thereby showing she did not have the intent to steal the funds, but was merely behind on starting the jobs. The State dismissed all charges prior to her first court appearance.
