This month’s INSURENEX Moving Up Client Spotlight is on the Law Firm of Loyst P. Fletcher (LFP). Founded by employment law attorney Loyst P. Fletcher the firm represents clients in federal and state courts in California, Nevada, Michigan and throughout the country with a proven track record of obtaining extraordinary relief for its clients.
One of three children and native of Flint, Michican, Loyst grew up around law books watching his father, a seasoned trial lawyer, successfully win verdicts for his clients in his home state. Loyst attended Hampton University where he completed undergraduate school in psychology and pre med; he received his Jurist Doctor Degree from the William & Mary School of Law in 1994.
After obtaining his law degree, Loyst made the move to Southern California to pursue his dreams: to one day open and grow his own law firm. After gaining valuable litigation and courtroom experience with a prominent law firm in Los Angeles, Loyst took a leap of faith, “I wanted to go on my own, I wanted to be my own boss, and I wanted to go after my father’s footsteps who did the same thing after working a few years,” said Fletcher. He did exactly that and in 2000 he opened his own practice. Within a few years the firm has grown to become a leading, highly respected litigation practice representing both plaintiffs and defendants in a wide range of civil litigation, employment, real estate, entertainment, and corporate transactional matters. His law practice has been featured in articles in The Los Angeles Times, TMZ, The Hollywood Reporter and Variety Magazine among others.
As many business owners struggled during the economic slowdown, Loyst focused on building his network, getting himself out in the community. He accepted a post as an Adjunct Professor with Trinity Law School where he teaches Civil Procedure and Trial Advocacy; “For us, the economic slow-down has had an inverse effect. For example, people at times get fired for improper reasons because companies are trying to save money or down size,” said Fletcher.
Fletcher’s advice for aspiring entrepreneurs in any specialization is to take risks, prepare yourself to build confidence in your abilities; running a law practice is no different than running other types of businesses so keeping an eye on operational expenses and keeping your staff motivated is always critical.
When asked what distinguishes The LPF firm from others in the industry, Fletcher responded, “We take on tough cases and we tend to be extremely aggressive and tend to put more resources behind our cases than the average firm.”
In the near future, The LPF firm plans to expand the number of attorneys and open an additional office in the Inland Empire.
Outside of working and growing his law firm, Fletcher enjoys jujitsu, cross fit, spending time on his boat, and traveling. One of Fletcher’s favorite places is Italy and says the Amalfi Coast is a must see when in Italy. Aside from leisure activities, Fletcher finds time to give back by participating in community based organizations and is also active in fundraising.
When asked what INSURENEX has been of a resource, Fletcher said, “They’ve provided insurance for both my law office and for my personal assets. They’ve gotten me the best value, have been responsive and they follow up,” said Fletcher.
We salute Loyst P. Fletcher, Esq. and The Loyst P. Fletcher Law Firm; dedication, hard work and a vision go a long way in achieving your dreams. We hope you are inspired to take action and to pursue your own dreams.
