Comprehensive Representation for Misdemeanor Crimes

Here at the Law Office of Jody L. Fisher, we offer comprehensive criminal defense services for clients throughout West Lake County who are facing misdemeanor charges. We strive to help our fellow Floridians overcome the unfortunate situations they find themselves in by developing effective solutions that protect their rights and freedom.

    “This law office is amazing! Ms. Fisher was so caring regarding my son's child support case. She guided us through the process and has given him a new lease on life since he no longer has an enormous amount of back support to pay. The staff was courteous and helpful every step of the way.

  • Divorce Case

    “My Fiancé was going through a very rough divorce before we met Mrs. Fisher. He had a Lawyer who didn’t care how his case turns out which wasn’t fear to us. He met with Mrs. Fisher and she took on his case. She made sure her and her staff were on top on everything. They kept us informed about any little changes and made sure we didn’t stress. She didn’t just come to court when it was time to come to court, she was hands on with everything from the beginning to the end. We didn’t know what our outcome would be with the first lawyer, but with Mrs. Fisher, we had confidence that everything would work out for the best. If you’re looking for a great, respectful, outstanding, hands on lawyer, Mrs. Fisher and her staff is your best go.You can stop your worrying and be able to relax while they handle it all. I’m so Grateful for her staff because now my spouse is divorced and we are now planning our wedding. Thank you Mrs. Fisher and your staff! My family and I will be forever Grateful. L. Edwards”
