    • I recommend Craig Van Thiel.

    I recently went through a collaborative divorce represented by Mike Fischer. He and his staff did an outstanding job during the process. I think it would have been a very rough road without their expertise. They not only provide excellent knowledge and input but a caring spirit that is obvious to all parties. It was a very emotional and stressful period for my ex-wife and myself. We were able to walk away feeling that the best outcome had been accomplished because of the environment by the attorneys. I want to tank Mr. Fischer and his staff for a job well done.

    My boyfriend and I lived in the state of Nevada. Our son was two months old when I came to California. When my son was 4 months old my boyfriend decided to move out to California. Two months later things didn’t work out and my ex moved back to Nevada. Immediately I filed for custody and at the time of filing my son was 6 months. Two weeks later I’m served with papers from Nevada claiming I improperly filed.The attorney helped me win jurisdiction since my son stayed in California longer. Plus I have full custody of my son. Thank you.

    • Craig handled my Divorce / Separation matter.
    • I have previously worked with 1-2 lawyers.

    I was very pleased with the professionalism, willingness to resolve the issues quickly and reasonable cost. Mine was a very complicated divorce with a number of lawyers involved and Michael was always focused on an expedient and lowest cost resolution with 'out of the box' solutions to complicated problems. I recommend him highly.

    I used Fischer and Van Thiel for some mediation services. I have not needed to use an attorney in the past but before I made a final decision I wanted to try the mediation. Staff was great it was just the person I'm needing the mediation with the causes me issue. Ha

    If I know someone that needs help I would absolutely recommend this law office. The best thing about the staff at Fischer and Van Thiel was that they kept their promises unlike other offices I've experienced. I will definitely recommend to friends and family. I am very satisfied.

    Most people don't expect to ever have to go through using a divorce lawyer when they're married but if you find yourself in this unfortunate circumstance, these are definitely the guys to go to. I would highly recommend them to friends and family. They maintain communication through the whole process and are very business saavy. If you are looking for a great divorce lawyer in the Oceanside area, definitely look up the attorneys at Fischer & Van Thiel.sammy

    Divorce has by no means been anything less than painful and heart wrenching. I hope to never go through that again. I was recommended to Fischer and Van Thiel through a coworker and I found that they were up front with me, answered my questions, returned my calls and basically helped me get through this process and be able to move onward and upward in my life. Thanks for all your help and assistance during this time.
