Lenny’s Corner: Looking Back on 25 Years of Englander Fischer

Lenny’s Corner: Looking Back on 25 Years of Englander Fischer

25th anniversary logo

September 2015 marks the 25thanniversary of Englander Fischer. This quarter-century milestone evokes a range of feelings in me; pride, honor, awe, overwhelming joy. But as we embark on our 25th year, the feeling I’ll hold with me the closest isgratitude.

I am grateful for 40 full years of living and breathing what I still consider to be the honorable profession. I am grateful for 40 years of waking each morning and going to work to practice what I love to do. I am especially grateful for these last 25 years and all those who have been a part of them. I am grateful for 25 years of victories to celebrate and 25 years of mistakes to learn from. Since 1990, we have grown and shrunk and grown again. We have mourned losses and rejoiced over triumphs. We have seen great success, and suffered our fair share of stumbles.

Jim Fischer and I met in 1972, on the morning of our first law school class at Stetson University. As a nervous young man, shaking as I walked down the hall, I never imagined that for years afterward, I and that guy from St. Petersburg would ultimately build a law practice together. Today, the only thing I regret is that he’s not here to celebrate by my side.

I am honored to have been asked to provide guidance by clients, blessed to spend time with colleagues and judges, and grateful to work side by side with so many able and wonderful staff and assistants. For all those who have experienced even a small part of this crazy ride – as employees, colleagues, clients and opposing counsel – thank you. I am truly grateful for these past 25 years and look forward to what the years ahead have in store.
