About Brandon

Learn Brandon’s areas of practice.

Brandon was born in Indiana.  He grew up in South Florida.  After high school, he moved to Orlando to attend the University of Central Florida.  While there, Brandon was a member of Sigma Phi Epsilon and Phi Alpha Delta.  He also competed on the Mock Trial Team at UCF.  With the team, Brandon was able to compete in multiple Mock Trial competitions across the country, learn essential trial practice skills, and earn a Best Attorney award at the American Mock Trial Association’s Southeast Regional Mock Trial Competition.  After UCF, he moved to Chicago to attend Loyola University Chicago’s School of law, where he also competed on the Mock Trial Team, continued to develop and refine his trial practice skills, and earned a Certificate in Advocacy.

After graduating law school, Brandon joined the Orange County State Attorney’s Office as an Assistant State Attorney.  At the State Attorney's Office, he prosecuted criminal defendants, enforced criminal laws, and advocated on behalf of the State of Florida, as well as the victims of criminal misconduct.  While there, Brandon also independently prosecuted a high-volume felony caseload from intake to disposition, prepared numerous motions, delivered arguments in various types of circuit court hearings, conducted the depositions of both state and defense witnesses, and performed all phases of the trial process from jury selection to closing arguments.  In his first two years as a prosecutor, Brandon tried over 30 jury and non-jury trials to verdict as lead council.  Before leaving the office, he was promoted through five levels of prosecution, including county court misdemeanor, entry level circuit court felony, the juvenile bureau, the DUI unit, and the Drug Unit. 

Brandon is now using the information and things he learned as a prosecutor, to build strong cases for his criminal defense clients at The Fighter Law Firm.

Not your average attorney.
I have worked in legal for over a decade and know firsthand how the system can be unjust. This hit home when my son was wrongly accused of a crime and possibly looking at a felony charge. I immediately called my contacts and Brandon Dark was the name I was given. Once retained, he quickly went on the offensive and was not only able to make the right people listen to the facts – but no arrest or charges ever followed. My son's reputation/life was not ruined by this matter and I’m so grateful to Brandon. If you find yourself in need of an amazing attorney, he is your guy.

Greatest Attorney Ever!!
Mr. Dark was my attorney and he got my case dropped. If you need an attorney that’s professional, informative and has expertise in the field of law I highly recommend you notify Attorney Brandon Dark. I was extremely satisfied with the way he handled my case which ultimately lead to being dismissed!

Professional and Dedicated
I was rear ended in January of 2019 and from that minute on, Brandon Dark was on top of what I needed to do to make sure I was taken care of. He responded to any queries I had over the time it took to process this case and the settlement he was able to attain was fair. Great work and highly recommended.

Best lawyer in Florida!!
Hired him for the first time and will never forget the greatest chose of my life literally. The state wanted to throw me away but Mr Dark! Said no no! Case dismissed. That’s just one case. All my traffic tickets dismissed. His talk game is one of the best hands down !!!

Brandon was absolutely amazing, he exceeded my expectations by far. He was always available when I needed him and always responded in a timely manner. I was facing multiple Felonies and many years in prison. He did not wrap a blanket of BS around me to come for me. He was straight up and honest the whole time loss keeping me updated on every step. In the end I received time service for trespassing. I was very pleased with the outcome and would highly recommend him to anyone. As a matter fact he also got a case dismissed for one of my family members after I referred them to him. I was also dealing with an out-of-state case that he assisted with finding me an attorney for. He is very professional and punctual, I wish there were more attorneys like him

He's a Fighter
From our initial consultation, I knew he was definitely the one for the job. He has made the whole process as smooth as possible. Brandon along with his assistants have been very accessible and welcoming with any and all concerns I had with my ongoing case. He's not just a lawyer but a "Fighting" lawyer. He will make sure he fights for you in the court room and he has a "Winning" record to prove so. I highly recommend him.

Guaranteed peace of mind
Brandon Dark is one of the most exceptional lawyers I have came across, really! Brandon has defended me in multiple different cases, ranging from traffic violations to criminal defense. Once you initially talk to Brandon, your worries quickly start to dissipate because he is a true professional in what he does. Brandon represented me recently in a criminal defense case, which ended up being dropped within a month of me being charged. Brandon has represented me on four different cases to date, each of them residing in a victory. Brandon is an exceptional lawyer and all around a good person, whoever hires him to represent them in whatever case they are in good hands. All in all, his track record is superb.

The Dark Knight
I believe everyone should have an attorney like Brandon who will fight for them and justice. In 2013, the Court sentenced me incorrectly due to a mistake made by the State of Florida. A mistake that has made it harder to get a job or further my schooling for nearly 5 years. A mistake that Brandon was able to recognize and bring to the Court’s attention. A mistake that was corrected after Brandon got me another day in Court to right the wrong. Brandon is not only a good man, he is an excellent attorney. I would highly recommend him to anyone needing help.

When life gives you lemons...
I hired attorney Brandon Dark to help me through a scary situation. My wife and I were greatly impressed with the level of professionalism and sharp attention to detail Brandon displayed. The results of the case couldn't have been better and we would call upon again or recommend attorney Dark with no reservation.

Outstanding Attorney
Brandon Dark was recommended to myself from a friend. He is a very professional guy, but very easy to talk to and work with. He cares about you and defending you; you’re not just another case. He fought hard for the case to go in my favor. He was very adamant with the State and was constantly breathing down their neck to file motions and get the results we wanted. I am beyond happy with my results and the case could not have gone better. I would highly recommend him and if ever need be, i would choose him again.

Excellent Attorney
Brandon was a great attorney that I highly recommend to everyone. He fully explained the entire process to us and was overly prepared for my day in court. He was very supportive and knowledgeable in all aspects of my case. Will definitely use again if ever in another situation where a lawyer is needed.

Best Attorney I've Ever Retained
Brandon was by far the best and most outstanding attorney I've ever retained. Brandon was incredibly professional, knowledgeable, motivated, confident, and persistent during my entire case. He has an extensive history of valuable experience and expertise in the legal system and court room that was very helpful. He was always prepared and did an excellent job handling my case with superior results. Every step of the way, he listened to me and cared. I now understand why their firm is called "The Fighter Law Firm." Brandon was prepared to do everything in his power to help me win my case. Thank you very much for all your hard work and being there for me through such a difficult time. And most importantly, thank you for helping me win my case!

We are so blessed and fortunate to come across with Atty. Brandon F. Dark from "The Fighter Law Firm", who well represented us in court, and realized that he was a former prosecutor who is equipped with experience and expertise in the legal system and in court. He took care of us and fought for us and ultimately gave us victory, which for our part gave us a relief from worry. We see him as very talented and skillful legal counsel. He and the other staff from "The Fighter Law Firm" are very professional in dealing with client/s like us. If I know someone who has been wrongfully accused, I highly recommend Atty. Dark to fight for that person. Thank you so much Atty. Dark for taking care of us.

The Absolute Best.
There aren't enough stars here to rate this guy. Brandon is a great man and an even better lawyer. I am so lucky to have come across Mr. Dark and the office of Fighter Law. He sets realistic expectations. He listens. He cares. He is persistent and confident and by far one of the best anywhere. My outcome was far greater than we expected and it could not have been done without Brandon. Thank you so much for being here for me and protecting my daughter and for helping me get my life back.
