Biography

Robert K. Fischl is licensed to practice in Florida, New York, Washington, D.C., and The Court of Military Appeals. He has joined the firm as a Senior Attorney after a long and distinguished career in New York. He followed his long-time dream to permanently relocate to Florida, and the firm is fortunate to have him join our team. His main focus for the firm is criminal defense, but he has decades of experience in many other practice areas.

After serving as a prosecutor for the Nassau County District Attorney's office for over a decade, Mr. Fischl started his own law practice. For the last 27 years, he has practiced criminal defense, business formation and litigation, real estate matters, personal injury, estate litigation, and family law.

Among his notable cases: he secured a six-figure settlement in a wrongful death case in which the decedent, an inexperienced motorcyclist, was killed in an accident while marijuana was in his bloodstream; achieved a six-figure settlement from a major national bank where the bank lost his client's stored valuables, without proof of value; won multiple verdicts against insurance companies attempting to deny coverage to policyholders, and saved homes from foreclosure.

Mr. Fischl secured multiple "not guilty" verdicts for his clients such as in a case where his client was charged with criminal possession of a weapon and thirteen counts of attempted assault for firing 24 shots into an occupied apartment. Obtained a "not guilty" verdict in a case of criminal possession of a weapon by a defendant on parole. He has also successfully defended violations of orders of protection, charges of driving with a suspended license, and drug charges of all levels. As a former DUI prosecutor, he has successfully dealt with thousands of DUI and under the influence cases. He has participated in hundreds of grand jury proceedings and jury trials and trained other prosecutors. He has been sought out by individuals charged with crimes all throughout New York State and asked to represent New Yorkers in Federal Courts in other states.

Mr. Fischl is an avid golfer and is looking forward to experiencing all of our great golf courses.
