Former U.S. Rep. Michael G. Fitzpatrick has practiced law for more than 20 years, representing individuals, family businesses, municipal corporations and large, complex organizations, as well as government authorities and officers.  His experience includes service as legal counsel to zoning hearing boards, township governments and school districts and similar entities. 

Mr. Fitzpatrick was elected four times to the U.S. House of Representatives in Pennsylvania’s Eighth Congressional District (109th, 112th, 113th and 114th Congresses) and served eight years on the House Financial Services Committee. While there, he was a member of three subcommittees: the Capital Markets and Government Sponsored Enterprises subcommittee; the Financial Institutions and Consumer Credit subcommittee, and the Oversight and Investigation subcommittee, on which he was vice chair. There he successfully sponsored legislation enacted in law, including the Credit Rating Agency Reform Act, Reverse Mortgage Stabilization Act, and additional resources for the National Flood Insurance Program.  He also chaired the Bipartisan Task Force to Investigate Terrorism Finance (2015-2016), which resulted in proposed legislation.

Mr. Fitzpatrick was also elected three times (1995, 1999, 2003) to the Bucks County Board of Commissioners and served ten years as a commissioner, five of which he was board chair. He and his fellow commissioners earned high praise for the skillful delivery of county services.  He spearheaded the organization of the County's first Enterprise Zone which lead to the creation of thousands of jobs in the private business sector of Bucks County.  Mr. Fitzpatrick successfully advocated for significant increases in farmland and open space preservation, and chaired effective publicly approved referendums to increase resources for land preservation projects.

Active in the community, Mr. Fitzpatrick has served as officer and director of numerous non-profit organizations including Lower Bucks Hospital, Bucks County Housing Development Corporation, Bucks County Council Boy Scouts of America (past president) and Self Help Movement, a local drug and alcohol residential treatment facility.
