Tina Fischer

Rising Tide Innovation Center and Fletcher & Fischer Law
Co -Founder
Tina Fischer is a seasoned attorney and Armed Forces veteran with a passion for community engagement and small business creation.

Her law practice reflects her commitment to entrepreneurship. As partner at Fletcher & Fischer, P.L., she specializes in assisting small businesses with loans, land acquisition, and regulatory navigation to get them up and running quickly and affordably. Tina also represents clients throughout the entire process of purchase and development of commercial real estate - from due diligence, financing, land acquisition, title services, and closings - to permitting and land use approvals, development, and lease negotiations.  Her commercial real estate clients include multi-family and marina developers and owners, office, retail and industrial developers, real estate investment trusts and property management companies.

As 14-year veteran of the Air Force, Tina also understands first-hand the challenges faced by vets as they transition to the private sector, and she is passionately dedicated to helping them on their path to employment and entrepreneurship. Her ability to bring people together unites organizations, education, training, work space, and business resources to change the lives and careers this growing population of uniquely talented workers. She has additionally held leadership positions on several veteran support organizations: Chair of the Florida Bar Association Military Affairs Committee, Advisory Council for Mission United Tampa Bay, and she donates her legal services to the ABA Veterans’ Claims Assistance Network.

A natural extension of Tina’s business focus and community mindedness is her co-founding of Rising Tide Innovation Center, a coworking office space in St. Petersburg that inspires collaboration for new and burgeoning enterprises. The goal of Rising Tide has always been bringing people together for mutual support, connection and cross promotion. More than just desks, Tina and her business partner have created a true community that fosters innovation, entrepreneurial growth, connectedness, and where a rising tide lifts all boats.
