Blog post by firm Founder and managing partner, Dennis J. Eisinger
It’s hard to believe but, in January of 2016, we will celebrate our law firm’s 20th anniversary. When Eisinger, Brown, Lewis, Frankel, & Chaiet, P.A. was founded almost two decades ago, we began with four attorneys and a very small staff. We were experienced attorneys with particular expertise in the areas of real estate, community association law, litigation and corporate law. We subsequently added our insurance coverage division.
Looking back over 20 years of growth, what stands out most of all are our many long-standing client relationships for which we are truly grateful and never take for granted, and our staff (which presently numbers 25). Every attorney, associate and paralegal at our firm contributes to our success each and every day, and all are greatly appreciated. Our corporate culture can best be described as family orientated.
Florida stands out compared to most other parts in the nation in terms of the number of homeowners who live in condominium or homeowners associations. As such, they are required to follow certain rules and abide by their associations’ by-laws and organizing documents. Each association is responsible for adhering to our state’s frequent legal and legislative changes. It can be a complicated legal maze and, as such, requires knowledgeable legal representation. Today, Eisinger Law serves more than 600 Florida community association clients.
In addition, our legal practice areas include real estate transactions, developer representation, commercial litigation, corporate and partnership law, and insurance law.
With our main office located in Hollywood, we have grown to be a regional firm serving clients throughout South Florida, thanks to our convenient access to Miami-Dade, Broward and Palm Beach County businesses, communities and courthouses.
On a personal note, I have been an Adjunct Professor at the University of Florida’s School of Law since 2005, traveling to Gainesville each week to teach a class on condominium and community development law to second and third year students. It’s a perfect opportunity for me to meld my passions for law and education, ensuring that the next generation of lawyers is well versed in the complexity of community association and development law.
We maintain an “of counsel” relationship in Gainesville as yet another way to serve our clients with a physical presence in Central and North Florida, two regions of the state that continue to experience tremendous growth.
It’s been an exciting ride so far and I look forward to what the next 20 years will bring.
