Our Attorneys and Staff

Fletcher Van Gilder is the result of a 2019 merger of two well-regarded Fort Wayne law firms: Eilbacher Fletcher, LLP and Van Gilder & Trzynka, P.C. Some of the original members of these firms include Leonard Eilbacher, Martin Fletcher, David J. Avery and Thomas Boyer. Avery and Boyer are currently members of the Allen County Judiciary. This merger assembled a distinguished team of experienced attorneys who share a commitment to excellence.

Several of our attorneys have also been recognized over the years by their peers for inclusion in publications such as Super Lawyers and Best Lawyers in America, and for professional excellence through the Martindale-Hubbell attorney rating system. The firm is often referred cases by other attorneys seeking highly experienced litigation practitioners.

As part of the firm’s culture, attorneys are active in bar association activities, often speak at legal education and other educational functions, and donate considerable hours of pro bono service.
