Our "client first” philosophy with a focus on quality is the driving force behind Dominick Feld Hyde.
Feld Hyde, P.C. and Dominick, Fletcher, Yeilding, Wood & Lloyd, P.A., two of Birmingham’s most experienced and respected law firms, have joined together to create, in the words of Greg Hyde, a co-founder of Feld Hyde, “a depth and breadth of experience in health care law, business transactions, estate planning, estate and trust administration, probate litigation, tax law, and family law that is equal to or greater than most large law firms in Alabama.”
Dominick Fletcher, founded in 1943, concentrated its practice in the areas of charitable organizations, health care, estate planning, probate, business transactions, family law, and commercial real estate, with significant growth being experienced in its health care and non-profit practice areas in recent years. With 10 of its 14 lawyers having advanced law degrees (Master of Laws in Taxation), Feld Hyde was referred to by some as a “tax boutique.” Feld Hyde focused its practice in estate planning, probate, business transactions, asset protection, and tax law for high net worth individuals, families and closely held businesses.
“Our common expertise in some very specific areas of law,” said Dominick Fletcher shareholder Susan Dominick Doughton, “positions us to better serve Birmingham’s growing health care industry – not only hospitals, physicians, and other health care providers, but also the businesses that service that industry and the owners of those businesses.” According to L.B. Feld, who co-founded Feld Hyde in 1993, the “new” firm, which will practice under the name of Dominick Feld Hyde, represents a combination of two firms “that share a similar philosophy about attention to detail and personalizing legal services to fit the client’s particular needs.” As to the quality of the legal services provided, he noted that Dominick Feld Hyde “will have as many, if not more, Super Lawyers®, Best Lawyers® and AV Preeminient Lawyers™ in its chosen practice areas than any firm our size.”
