Stephen D. Lowry
After over twenty years of practice with large law firms, Steve formed The Law Offices of Lowry & Associates in 2003. His practice is concentrated in the areas of commercial and residential real estate, estate planning and administration, asset protection, and business and tax planning. He has a law degree from Duke University, and an undergraduate degree from Lipscomb University in Nashville, Tennessee. He is admitted to practice in both Ohio and North Carolina, and is a member of the Wake County, North Carolina, and American Bar Associations.
A native of Oklahoma, Steve’s IBM family eventually was moved to North Carolina in 1970, and he has resided in Raleigh for the most part since then. After graduating from Duke University School of Law in 1980, he practiced for five years in Cincinnati, Ohio with the major regional law firm of Frost and Jacobs. He returned to North Carolina in 1985, and joined the law firm of Sanford, Adams, McCullough & Beard. He was a partner with that firm until its merger with a Charlotte firm in 1990 to form Parker, Poe, Adams & Bernstein, one of the largest firms in North Carolina. Steve continued as a partner with PPAB until he left in 2003 and formed The Law Offices of Lowry & Associates.
Steve is a frequent lecturer to professional groups and the general public on real estate, business, tax, and estate planning issues. He is an approved attorney with all of the major title insurance companies in the area, and is frequently solicited by those title companies to assist them in real estate matters and searches. He also counts several large law firms in the area as clients, for which he has handled numerous matters.
Steve and his wife Denise are the parents of Brian and Brittany, but the extended family also includes several dogs. They are both active in the Triangle community in both civic and professional affairs. Steve enjoys NC State and Lipscomb athletics, the Carolina Hurricanes, golf, and baseball (fantasy and real).
