Joseph A. Fitzpatrick Jr.
Founder and Shareholder
Fitzpatrick Lentz & Bubba PC
A founding member and shareholder of Fitzpatrick Lentz & Bubba, Joseph Fitzpatrick Jr. is recognized as one of Eastern Pennsylvania’s premier land use and development attorneys, according to his online bio.
“Always be aware that your team is looking at you,” he said of his leadership style, which involves “approachability, sincerity in dealing with individuals fairly, and leading by example (‘rolling up my sleeves and doing good work’ sets expectations). I believe trust, a collegiate culture and commitment to quality follow.”
After graduating from law school 40-plus years ago, “I saw an opportunity for a regional multi-disciplinary law firm,” Fitzpatrick said. “My belief in the prospect for a broadly emerging Lehigh Valley market, with connection to larger Northeastern metro areas, convinced me that the time was right to develop a firm here, outside of the traditional ‘county seat model’ firm.”
Outside the office, he said he enjoys spending time with family and friends; participation on community and philanthropic boards; “ongoing golf struggles; reading; travel; beach time with the dog.”
