About Lowndes, Drosdick, Doster, Kantor & Reed, P.A
Founded in Orlando, Florida in 1969, Lowndes, Drosdick, Doster, Kantor & Reed, P.A. is, according to the Orlando Business Journal, the largest law firm in Central Florida currently with over 100 attorneys. The firm's original four partners were engaged primarily in a burgeoning real estate practice. While our real estate practice and deep-rooted involvement in that industry remains an integral component of the firm, we have grown alongside the dynamic needs of our clients and community at large. Today, the firm's lawyers advise clients on almost every aspect of business: from copyrights and trademarks to high-stakes, high-profile litigation; from complex commercial and residential real estate issues to wealth management; from labor and employment law to healthcare; from capital raising and entity formation to corporate growth and expansion locally, nationally and internationally.

LDDK&R does not discriminate on the basis of age, color, sex, disability, marital status, national origin, race, religion, veteran status or sexual orientation. Beyond that policy, in an effort to broaden the diversity of attorneys in the firm, the firm has placed a particular emphasis in recent years on hiring and retaining minority candidates. In addition to our regular campus recruitment program, LDDK&R is proactive in identifying and reaching minority students. We regularly communicate with the placement officers of the law schools in which we conduct campus interviews, seeking assistance in notifying and inviting minority students to consider our firm.
Summer associate program
The summer associate program is uniquely designed to acquaint second-year law students with the firm's attorneys, practice areas and culture. Summer associates generally spend eight to twelve weeks working at the firm. Split summers are considered on a case-by-case basis, but we suggest that those who split their summers spend the first half of the summer with us.
Summer associates can expect to rotate among approximately six different practice groups, providing each law student the opportunity to work directly with many of the firm's attorneys. Whenever practicable, we provide summer associates with opportunities to attend client meetings, closings, negotiations, depositions, trials and hearings. Summer associates are routinely asked to draft research memoranda, litigation pleadings, and a wide array of transactional and real estate documents, giving them a chance to demonstrate their analytical, advocacy and writing skills.
