Superb !!!

I had to deal with a difficult case and contacted Michael Fischer to assist me. He was on top of the case from day one and applied a very pleasant communication style! You can be sure he will get things done and leaves you with nothing to worry about! I felt really supported and I cannot thank Michael Fischer enough for winning my case! I can highly recommend him!


Best Service..

I finally got a restraining order against my long term boyfriend. It was so scary to do, but consulting with Mr. Fischer gave me the support and confidence I needed to finally do it. I pressed charges against him and Mr. Fischer is representing me in court. I feel so supported and now I am not afraid of the legal system. He has taken care of everything for me and I couldn't be more grateful. I did not need to do much to make this happen all thanks to Mr. Fischer!


Thank you

I'm forever grateful for the work that Michael Fischer does. It is such an overwhelming life event to go through divorce, custody, and all the other crap that comes with it. He gave me great advice and support through the whole drawn out process, and I feel like the best possible outcome occurred. I could have lost everything if it weren't for his expertise of our legal system.


Amazing Service

Craig Van Thiel's practice is the most competent in the south LA area. Their security clearance expertise is outstanding. They were bale to easily get my military guard card so I may start work. Professional group.


Thank You !!!

Going through a very stressful time Michael Fischer really helped me through it all. He helped me fight my case and took a lot of weight off my shoulders in order to get full custody of my son. He reported back to me all the updates with my case, and ended up winning my case! Thank you Michael Fischer, you really are great at what you do.

My first impression during my consolation sold me. The attorneys were very upfront and exceptionally skilled. They helped me with a spousal support issue with a difficult past relation and I was very happy with the outcome. I would recommend Fischer and Van Thiel firm to anyone I know in a similar position.

I used Fischer & Van Thiel during my family property division agreement. Attorney Michael Fischer always kept me informed and was very prompt in answering any of my questions no matter how big or small. He made the whole process go smoothly. It was a challenging division of our property that threw many issues but Michael didn’t miss anything and all his advice was first class. I would wholeheartedly recommend to others looking for solicitors for their property. Thank you, Michael and the entire team!!!
