I would absolutely recommend Myra to anyone looking for top-notch legal service!. She has been invaluable to me and my family and she has been instrumental in helping me navigate a very complex custody battle. If you are looking for a pure professional....Myra is your Lawyer of Choice!!!!

Myra has been a great Attorney for me.... so glad I found her. I was looking for an Attorney that would sympathize with my unique situation and want to do a good job for me. A strong and knowledgeable Attorney that keeps the clients best interest in mind. Gets the job done without unnecessarily dragging it out.

Based on my experience, stay away from Myra Fleischer!
When I hired Ms. Fleischer's firm to represent me in my divorce, I was led to believe that the process would be handled efficiently and professionally. Due to a myriad of factors including delayed response times, numerous billing errors, and an unnecessary court appearance, I would NEVER recommend Myra Fleischer and her staff, and strongly advise you to stay away from her office.
In addition to billing me for her own errors, Myra and her staff gave me no guidance whatsoever regarding the divorce process, and they seemed unaware of major events pertaining to my divorce. For example, when my husband and I arrived at an agreement regarding the disposition of the house we jointly owned, Myra and her staff failed on numerous occasions, and despite my reminders, to revise the Marital Settlement Agreement (MSA) that would finalize the divorce. Myra did not seem interested in avoiding expensive court appearances that could easily have been avoided. On one occasion, she sent a member of her staff to a 5 minute meeting with a judge merely to postpone the meeting. This could have been done with a phone call. She did not even notify me of this meeting, and I was not aware that it had taken place, until I received a $412.50 bill for it. Every isolated sentence from her paralegal, Heather, cost me $39.00. For example, in response to a 1 sentence e-mail inquiry from me regarding the status of a revised MSA, her paralegal e-mailed "We are working on it." For this, I was billed $39.00. In fact, they had not done any work at all on the MSA and to this date, I have never received a revised version. This scenario was repeated several times for inquiries regarding various documents and meetings and I was charged $39.00 each time. In addition, per her standard contract with clients, Myra charges 5% of the entire bill for copying and postage. Thus, I was billed almost $500.00 for postage and copying that could not possibly have cost more than $50.00.
After $8,000 and more than 1 year of my time, my ex and I are still not divorced. I have since had to transfer the case to outside paralegals as Myra and her staff are too incompetent and/or too uncaring to complete the divorce process.
STAY AWAY FROM MYRA FLEISCHER AT ALL COSTS.
