David Van Allen, Principal
I’ve had the unique opportunity to work with some of the country’s largest and most prestigious law firms over the past 30 years. Also, in many cases, I needed to engage a more local counsel who could help augment the legal team. Not only has FLB performed in significant and valuable ways as partner counsel in these situations, but it became clear to me early on that FLB could stand toe-to-toe with these large firms even in matters involving large acquisitions and similar material transactions. As a result of my long tenure with FLB, I could recommend them easily and confidently to anyone who requires the utmost in professional legal services, no matter how complicated the matter.
Larry J Goodwin, Principal, 1788 Holdings, LLC
I was first introduced to FLB when my firm bought 425,000 SF Riverside Business Center in 2018 and we needed a local lawyer to handle all our leasing documents. Jane Long was the person with whom we originally worked but after she retired, we eventually started working with Steph Kobal. While we had had a policy of using local leasing lawyers for our various projects up and down the east coast, our relationship with Steph blossomed such that we began to use her for all of our leasing and acquisition work. In that she is also well-versed in land use work, we have used her on these matters in the Lehigh Valley as well. The highest praise that anyone within our firm can offer is when we state that someone feels like a long-term employee of our firm. Steph certainly wears that mantle within our shop, we truly view her as an extension of our firm and there is not a person within our shop that ever hesitates to pick up the phone an seek her advice on legal matters confronting our holdings. Steph is a rockstar in our eyes!
Paul Treible, Vice President of Operations, Nelipak Healthcare Packaging (formerly Computer Designs, Inc)
During the acquisition process, we were challenged to meet numerous deadlines with little time. Ken Charette and the FLB team worked diligently to accommodate my requests with a cheerful spirit, and I know this the team was pressured. The FLB team showed their mettle with a positive outlook.
When I requested items to be completed in short order, they were done early or on time; furthermore, these requests were finished well. It was a pleasure to work with such a high performing team of professionals.2
Dave Davis, President/Owner, HoverTech International
I was first referred to FLB for a litigation matter which threatened me and my start-up business. Doug Smillie and Joe D’Amico successfully represented me and my company. Not only did we win the case, but the Court ordered my name to be added to the patent in issue. Since then, my business has grown and FL&B has been with me every step of the way. It is not uncommon for me to speak to Jane Long about a business transaction, Tim Charlesworth about international business issues, Marie McConnell and Erich Schock about real estate matters and Ed Lentz about my estate planning all in the same day. FL&B has been able to serve all my legal needs and, more importantly, they are honest people who care about my goals and help me achieve them.
Douglas F. Colson, Chairman, Eastern Engineered Wood Products Inc
We have worked with FLB for more than 10 years using a variety of their legal services including real estate acquisition and development, human resource management and protection, litigation and many aspects of corporate law. Jane Long and her team have consistently delivered superior legal and management advice and outstanding transactional expertise all with a high degree of urgency and a sensitivity that showed they had a personal interest in a positive outcome. We are extremely happy with FLB and enthusiastically recommend them to others. We feel very lucky to have found such a reliable and trustworthy partner for our businesses.
Rob Brooks and Jim Brooks, Owners, AHL Lehigh Valley Phantoms
Almost nine years ago, in our national search for a home for the Flyers AHL affiliate, we chose the Lehigh Valley and engaged Joe Fitzpatrick and his team. Joe and many FLB attorneys have worked with us and our franchise ever since – on contracts, protecting trademarks, tax questions, real estate, and supporting Phantoms Charities, our community mission. FLB cares and delivers results.
David Weinstein, President, Sunburst Property Management
I have worked with FLB for over 30 years. They have consistently provided me with timely, quality legal advice and services that gives me a comfort level to be able do complex real estate transactions and financing.
John Derr, Owner, The LornaDave Agency
As the head of a talent agency for people in television news I look only to represent the best. So when I have representation on the legal front, I want the best representing my agency. That’s why I have Fitzpatrick, Lentz & Bubba on my team! I retained the services of FLB for LornaDave Agency over ten years ago and it’s one of the best decisions I’ve made! The bottom line is they get results! I have all of the confidence in the world I’m going to receive the best advice and representation when I turn a case over to them.
Jim Dale, President, Pelican Leisure Sports
Doug [Smillie] is one of the best attorneys I have ever worked with. He was always on top of every aspect of my case, explaining options and strategies. He helped my company through a very difficult time, which allowed us to continue in business financially stronger. I have used other lawyers in his firm and have received the same… They don’t get much better!
Thomas J. Pecuch,Treasurer, Precision Roll Grinders, Inc.
In addition to the traditional legal services that have been provided, Fitzpatrick Lentz & Bubba has been very progressive and forward thinking in the area of risk management and protecting the assets of our corporation. Without hesitation, we would recommend them to any organization.
