Welcome To Fishback Dominick
A Legacy of Excellence
Fishback Dominick is one of Central Florida’s oldest law firms. We attribute our longstanding success as a firm to Ben Fishback’s commitment–originally made in 1935–to zealously pursue our clients’ objectives with integrity, professionalism, and excellence in the practice of law. It is not by chance that we have attorney-client relationships more than half a century old.
Distinguised Among Attorneys
Fishback Dominick holds a peer review of AV-Preminent from Martindale-Hubbell, the highest rating in competency and ethical standards. Martindale-Hubbell recognizes Fishback Dominick in its Bar Register of preeminent Lawyers, a listing of America’s most distinguished law firms. In 2012, Martindale-Hubbell selected Fishback Dominick as one of Florida’s Top Ranked Law Firms. All our partners are AV-Preeminent rated.
Areas of Practice
We counsel our clients principally in the areas of local government and land use law, commercial and business litigation, real estate, and business transactions. Three of our attorneys–Kurt Ardaman, Daniel Langley, and Gayle Owens–are Board Certified by the Florida Bar as experts in City, County and Local Government law, a distinction shared by less than one half of 1% of practitioners in Florida. Kurt is past-chair of the Florida Bar’s eminent domain section. Senior partner John Bennett is one of Florida’s most distinguished practitioners advising clients in the highly regulated area of alcoholic beverage law and in corporate matters. Mark Ahlers has 30 years of experience in banking litigation and real estate transactions. Rick Geller handles business and commercial litigation–from the simplest to the most complex.
Sound Judgement…Sensible Advice
We endeavor to provide sound assessments, enhancing and protecting our clients’ interests, as well as allowing our clients to make rational business decisions whether to litigate or settle a dispute. When litigation is necessary, we are prepared. We have decades of experience handling cases through trial and appeal.
The biographies on this website reflect each attorney’s commitment to excellence in the practice of law and service to the community. Today–as in 1935–we use our talents and abilities to protect and advance our clients’ interests.
