About me

Jeremy F. Fisher is the owner and primary attorney at Second Chance Legal Services. Mr. Fisher grew up in the small town of West Branch, MI. After moving to Detroit to attend the University of Detroit Mercy, Mr. Fisher gradauted with honors with a Bachelor’s degree in History and Political Science. ​


After college Mr. Fisher graduated with honors from the University of Detroit Mercy School of Law finishing in the top 15% of his law school class. After law school he began practicing in the area of bankruptcy and financial distress. ​


Mr. Fisher worked for two of Detroit’s largest Consumer Bankruptcy firms before starting Second Chance Legal Services. When forming the firm he believed that clients deserve more individualized service than what the large firms provide. For that reason, clients of Second Chance can expect the same kind of service that Mr. Fisher provides to his friends and family. Clients have one attorney from beginning to end and they can expect that every court form is prepared by an attorney and not shopped out to a paralegal.

Mr. Fisher has a beautiful wife Jennifer whom he met in college and two wonderful children, Oliver and Aniela-Marie. Mr. Fisher spends most of his free time with his wonderful family.
