de Beaubien, Knight, Simmons, Mantzaris & Neal, LLP, also known as dBKSMN, was founded in 1976, when senior partners Thomas B. Drage, Jr. and Hugo H. de Beaubien combined their individual practices to form what has become one of Central Florida’s largest law firms. Almost 35 years later, the firm has expanded to over 100 employees, including nearly 50 experienced attorneys practicing in approximately 40 individual areas of law. The firm has also earned the highest rating available by the Martindale-Hubbell Law Directory, a rating that signifies a firm has reached the heights of professional excellence and exhibits the utmost skill and integrity.
Our growth has permitted us to provide an expansive range of services to our clients.
