A pair of Southwest Florida law firms have promoted attorneys to partner-level roles. 

In one move, Fort Myers-based Henderson, Franklin, Starnes & Holt P.A. elected Madison Tanner as a stockholder. Tanner, according to a statement, began her career at the firm as a summer associate, and was later promoted to associate. “I have immense gratitude for having been voted in as a stockholder by my colleagues, " Tanner says in the release. 

With a focus on premises liability, Tanner’s litigation practice also involves personal injury defense, legal malpractice and insurance coverage matters. In addition she serves as general counsel for the Hendry County School District and School Board Attorney. 

Henderson Franklin, with offices in Fort Myers, Bonita Springs and Naples, was founded 100 years ago. 

In another recent promotion, Stephen Dommerich was named partner in the business and civil litigation department at Aloia, Roland, Lubell & Morgan PLLC in Fort Myers. Dommerich was a senior associate attorney at the firm, the release says. A Fort Myers native, he joined the firm in 2021 after working as a prosecutor at the State Attorney’s Office – Twentieth Judicial Circuit in Fort Myers. 

“Stephen’s diverse background and expertise in business and civil law only strengthens the commitment of Aloia Roland to provide clients with top legal representation,” Aloia Roland Business and Civil Legal Litigation Senior Partner Jack Morgan III says in the release. 

Aloia, Roland, Lubell & Morgan was founded in 2004.
