Carla P. Lowry earned her J.D. in 2000 from the Stetson University College of Law, and is admitted to the State bar of Florida, and U.S. District Courts of Middle and Southern Districts of Florida. Ms. Lowry has previously served as a panelist and mentor for several organizations, and as a leader to the Hispanic community, Women Lawyers, and High School students throughout the State of Florida.


Ms. Lowry started her career as a Public Defender and Assistant State Attorney in Pinellas County and Hillsborough County, Florida. Ms. Lowry is the founder of Lowry at Law, P.A., in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, where she specializes in criminal, family, dependency, and appellate law. She has worked extensively in matters involving criminal appeals and post-conviction relief. She is also responsible for defending all citations issued to Uber Partner drivers in the South Florida area. During her time in the State Attorney’s Office and the Public Defender’s Office, Ms. Lowry tried hundreds of jury trials, including but not limited to, sex crimes, homicides, racketeering (organized crime), and drug offenses.
Estimates suggest that about 50,000 people are trafficked into the United States each year and a large number of child sex trafficking survivors in the United States were at one time in the foster care system. Due to the alarming statistics and her involvement with dependency and criminal court, Ms. Lowry has been involved with helping sex trafficking survivors by consulting, teaching and mentoring attorneys and survivors to understand and apply the Trafficking Survivors Relief Act and other support in their community.


Ms. Lowry is also a member of the Broward Hispanic Bar Association, Family Law Section of the Broward County Bar Association, and a Board Member of the Broward County Hispanic Vote.

An Attorney that I appreciate very much
Carla Lowry and Allison are outstanding Attorneys and not only is Carla an impressive attorney in court but as well is touched by altruistic motives in her work, which is not that common for this field. I am so glad, that I found Carla and Allison because I have a high conflict divorce case with contempt of court and non-pay of my separated husband. I believe that Carla and Allison will help me to find justice in all parts of my divorce, as well for child custody. So far, Carla presented herself in court much better than the opposite Attorney's (he is on his third Attorney:) and Hilda is to the utmost helpful with any scheduling needs. To find such great team of Attorney's especially in a high conflict divorce is a blessing.

On point and professional
I've used Carla for more than 10 years now and have always been very satisfied with the results she's produced. I started with her in a family case regarding custody and child support and have also used her services for traffic and criminal charges. She's very honest, to the point, and practical urging the most effective situation without only being concerned about how she can make more money. I highly recommend her!

Great Attorney
I hired Carla a few years ago for a pretty serious felony criminal matter. She was great! She was able to negotiate a plea deal that resulted in me having no jail time and only 6 months probation (which was very good considering the charge). She's very affordable and really good at allowing payment plans (after an initial small lump sum payment). She wasn't the greatest at calling back right away but she's a busy attorney; I expected that. Even though I didn't always talk to Carla, I was able to get the information I needed from her friendly and helpful employees. I would recommend Carla a million times over!!

Solid, Affordable Divorce Laywer
I hired Carla to handle my divorce after a 20+ year marriage. Not only did she handle it expediently, but she also was honest, straightforward, responsive and didn't encourage actions that would prolong the process just to rack up legal fees for either herself or the other party. I received sound advice and clear options along the way, even though I had to make several decisions that weren't always easy. I would recommend Carla to other women seeking counsel and representation during a divorce or family dispute.

Not expert on Post Convictions
The week of June 4, 2018, I emailed an attorney with motion attached and key details of the case. An attorney contacted me and referred me to Carla Lowry who then emailed me, called me and text me. She was very responsive in the beginning. When I met with her on June 14, she said she reviewed all that was attached to the email and that she can do the sentencing scoresheet 3800 motion for $5000 including restoring his rights. I have detailed records and emails of what she is able to do. August 21, Carla said she didn't have good news and a letter will be mailed to my busband .Finally, we received a letter after a few weeks. She never once spoke to my husband (the defendant ) until October 8th. From the day I paid $2500 June 21st until August 21st. When my husband spoke to her its as if she was still unaware that this was a post conviction relief. We did find another attorney who told us she is not an expert on post conviction and I won't have to pay this new attorney until we get a hearing date.
