Attorney Alec Domb, The Law Offices Of Alexander L. Domb Wellington attorney Alec Domb of the Law Offices of Alexander L. Domb P.A. was born and raised in New York. He attended the University of Miami and earned his law degree from the Nova Southeastern Law Center. Domb later chose Wellington for his business, his home and his arena for community participation. A practicing attorney since 1986, his primary focus is on commercial litigation and contested matters, real estate transactions, estate planning and guardianship, and the disputes that arise from these areas. Managing guardianship proceedings means protecting people’s liberties, especially in adult situations, when such cases involve verification that the person petitioning to be a guardian is qualified and that it would be in the best interests of the person for the petitioner to actually be the guardian. With a background as a legal practitioner and through his title company, Domb has been involved in the real estate business for more than three decades. When it comes to real estate transactions, there is not a title problem that he hasn’t seen, worked through and fixed during his tenure. Domb offers this advice to residents, reminding them of the importance of having these four completed documents that every adult in Florida should have: a will, a living will, a durable power of attorney, and a healthcare surrogate designation that covers HIPAA concerns. These documents are especially important as people get older. Wellington The Magazine interviewed Domb regarding his legal background and practice. How long has your firm been doing business in Palm Beach County? I relocated from Broward County in 2005. However, my firm was the HUD closing agent for Palm Beach over 25 years ago. I have been practicing law for more than 32 years.

Why did you choose Palm Beach County to establish your practice? I chose to live in Wellington around 2003, and eventually

transferred my business here 13 years ago. I love Wellington, and moving here is the best move my wife, Melody, who is a nurse, and I ever made. The village has so much to offer socially. I enjoy the Wellington community, the horse shows and polo. The Palm Beach International Equestrian Center and the dressage arena make Wellington a unique place among communities. It is not your average South Florida bedroom community.

What type of cases do you generally handle? What percentage of your practice is devoted to this type of law? I deal primarily in the area of real estate, including related litigation, title insurance and title disputes, as well as zoning and code enforcement matters. I handle foreclosure cases for the lender. I am presently prosecuting a $36 million foreclosure matter regarding a property in the Town of Palm Beach. wellington the magazine | may 2018
