Fisher Potter Hodas is a powerhouse partnership of family law and civil trial attorneys modeled after elite New York litigation boutiques. The firm was created to offer clients a different kind of family law firm, one in which they can find the quality of service they seek from top New York commercial firms combined with the experience of seasoned trial lawyers.
Fisher Potter Hodas concentrates its practice on complex, high-stakes divorce litigation involving corporate executives, professional athletes, and other high-net-worth individuals. In the last two years, the firm has tried to conclusion 10 cases with a total amount in dispute of more than $2 billion. The firm also routinely handles cases with similarly substantial amounts of disputed assets that are resolved outside of the courtroom.
Because the partners represent some of the wealthiest families in the country, as well as celebrities, the firm’s cases regularly appear in the media. For example, The New York Times Magazine recently ran a feature story on the partners’ work in uncovering hidden offshore assets, titled “How to Hide $400 Million.” The firm’s partners have also been interviewed by national news organizations seeking their opinions on highprofile divorces, including recent interviews for CNN and CNBC following the announcement of the Bezos divorce.
The attorneys at Fisher Potter Hodas are experienced litigators with backgrounds as federal prosecutors, corporate trial attorneys, and appellate practitioners who have been recognized locally, nationally, and worldwide in the field of marital law. The credentials of the lawyers who work at Fisher Potter Hodas run the gamut of the Ivy League, including college and law school degrees from Yale, Harvard, and Princeton. Also, in 2018, partner Jeff Fisher was named the Daily Business Review’s most effective lawyer in the field of family law. Firm members have also risen to the top of Florida’s Family Law Bar. Fisher and fellow partner Ben Hodas are both board-certified in family and marital law, and Hodas currently serves on the Marital and Family Law Board Certification Committee.
