Trusts, Wills, Estate & Tax Planning Attorney

Fletcher is a Carolina-born Floridian, having spent 18 years in the Charlotte area before relocating to Florida fresh out of high school. The majority of his family, including his grandfather, Fletcher G. Rush, a past president of the Florida Bar (1966), is from Florida.

He considers “Big Fletcher” one of his biggest role models saying, “His passion for helping people and the influence he had to make positive changes in the Orlando community was probably what inspired me to become an attorney.”

After planting his own roots in Florida, Fletcher began his academic career at the University of Florida where he spent the next nine years to earn a degree in economics, his juris doctor, and master of laws in taxation. Fletcher started as a summer clerk at the Farr Law Firm in 2012 and has been an associate attorney since 2013. Fletcher is Board Certified by The Florida Bar in Wills, Trusts and Estates and focuses his practice on estate planning.  Fletcher and his wife, Laura, live in Sarasota with their son, Liam.
