I grew up in Pennsylvania and moved to Florida in 1999 when my parents went through a very difficult and nasty divorce.  Not living at home did not help or make the process any less difficult for my family. 

 

I live locally with my husband and two small children who are often in and out of the office.  You will likely see us at horse shows on the weekends watching our daughter compete or out watching our son learn to ride motorcycles!

Criminal Defense Family Law
Thank you Jody Fisher for your guidance, and an ability to explain what my rights are so that I could be more empowered to legally settle family disputes. I have been very impressed with the entire office staff who are professional and diligent in my case. Ms. Fisher was instrumental in winning the first phase of our case. I appreciate the high level of care and professionalism in this firm.

Quickly resolved my case!
The staff was very professional and Jody was amazingly fast in resolving my legal worries. My issues came up during the Covid -19 pandemic - the staff provided great social distancing, protecting me as a client while still effectively working on my case.

Awesome Woman!
When we first met with Ms. Fisher, she was kind and caring. She really listened as my son explained his situation. Then, she gave us excellent guidance on how to proceed. She achieved for us "the best case scenario she had told us about on our initial visit." We couldn't have had a more wonderful lawyer!

Great attorney
Jodi and her paralegal Patti went over and above the call of duty to help me with a financial situation recently. They took the time to listen to my concern and went to work on it. Kudo's to you Jodi and your law firm.

Great Divorce Attorney
Jody Fisher is an A+ attorney!! My husband and I went through 2 others trying to find someone who was in it for "us" and our needs, and not just their bottom line! She is NEVER judgemental, always listens and truly sympathizes with her clients. She was able to make us aware of legal rights other attorneys haven't even bothered to let us know we had, and she was always very honest and realistic with any advice she gave. She treated our case individually, and didn't put us into some "legal hold" and in our experience, that's extremely hard to find! Her paralegal (Patti) is also very sweet and helpful. They make a great team. Attorney Fisher is not afraid to FIGHT for you, and that's how every attorney should be! She will definitely be our choice if we ever need any legal help again

Excellent Representation
She worked hard to gain a favorable outcome in a complicated case. Without her help, the consequences would have been terrible. The cost was worth the outcome.

Extremely helpful and knowledgeable!!
I had a possible pending case that I consulted Jody Fishers office about. Everyone in this office was extremely helpful and courteous! Every question I had whether in person or on the phone was answered with knowledge and advice, that made me feel more at ease with my situation. The best customer service I've experienced anywhere! Would highly recommend giving them a try if you are in need of legal help!

Nasty Divorce
Went thru a rough and very bad bitter vindictive divorce, Jody and her staff help me thru some of the roughest times in my life...things and situations U can't imagine....Jody kept me out of jail 4 different times, not of my own but because the ex was up to no good all the time...Jody and her staff protected me the best she could legally, facing charges that I was accused of and didn't do.... well the good prevailed and the state attorney, dropped all said charges cause I had performed and took the high road not stooping to the ex's level...I'll just say the judge told me after everything that was said and done, told me I was a gentleman and scholar and very noble.... don't know if anyone knows anything about judges especially a woman judge, and a crazy divorce with kids.... that's a very high honor and praise..... so my hats off to Jody and her staff..... very likeable .. very jokeable.....but b ware they will give u a nickname..... mine is "trouble"... yep just ask Patti..... "here comes trouble"..... or "trouble what r u up to now"......AAA++++++ rating.... highly recommmended......

The best things in Life are never free!!
There have been multiple times I have needed legal advice over little things, representation in a difficult divorce and even help in a car accident case where the child's injuries will last a lifetime. There is NO ONE I can say I trust more than Ms. Fisher. It seems she works 24/7 and is always there when I need her, even if its a seemingly silly question where I have analyzed things to much! Doctors don't get paid only when they are in an operating room, well, Lawyers don't get paid just when in the courthouse! Her fees are fair (price shop if you must) for the amount of work and time that truly is put into cases such as mine. While waiting to have a consult with Ms. Fisher, I saw the amount of calls that come in to her office. That level of professionalism is a rarity and was reassuring me further with each ring of the phone that I was in the right place! Patti, her Assistant, would return some of my calls and answer questions I had posed for Jody. Yes, I wanted to talk to my attorney but I am smart enough to know I am NOT her only client!! My cases were the most important in my world just like everyone's is to themselves. Patti relayed whatever the message or direction was and took the time to explain what my Attorney wanted her to tell me, she spoke professionally and reassuringly like we were friends and I feel she truly cares! At no time was Ms. Fisher "unreachable", whether it was her assistant following up with me or Ms. Fisher herself, no question was left unanswered. I would not and could not imagine facing some of the tough things I have in the legal system without having Ms. Fisher by my side. I recommend her to EVERYONE and will continue to do so with ZERO hesitation!!

Adoption
I could not have asked for better representation than what we recived from Jody! She was very detailed in what this process would involve. It was quick and painless expecially after trying to attempt the step parent adoption on our own what a nightmare that was. I would definitely recomend Jody to friends, family or anyone who is looking to higher a family attorney.

Difficult Divorce!!
No matter what questions or concerns I had, she always took the time to knowledge me. Keeping me informed constantly. Keeping herself available to me at all times. Nothing more important in a divorce with children. I can highly recommend Jody. Her knowledge in family law is like no other! Always thinking of what's best for me and the children throughout the entire process. Staff is professional and friendly with great knowledge as well.

Husband divorce client
I was a little unsure in hiring a woman attorney to represent me in my divorce but I couldn't have made a better choice. My now exwife hated her which I liked but attorney Fisher didn't waste time in pushing my case forward. I can't lie and say it was cheap but I am completely happy with how my case went. Patti from her office is great and answered questions I had and gave me her cell phone number because my ex was being sneaky with the kids over the weekend. I have already told my neighbor about this office and would use her again.

Quick divorce
Hired attorney Fisher for a divorce. I have four kids and my wife left me to support them by myself. I was able to get a quick divorce keep the kids and I don't worry about my ex coming back to get them. She was not free but I was able to make payments, her office staff was great and they got the job done. Jody also helped me clear up a stupid mistake I made that got me arrested and it was dropped the court.

Divorce
Jody was my second lawyer handling my divorce and I was finally divorced with her help! The girls in her office were great . I was really surprised but she gave me her cell phone and answered my questions on a weekend. Would highly recommend her to anyone of my friends and have done so already.

Divorce client
I was not sure if I was ready to get divorced and she was always willing to take my calls and see me even though I asked a lot of questions. When I filed I met with her paralegal and we went over everything and it went really well. My husbands lawyer was a jerk but I for everything that I wanted and more. I would definetly recommend her in a divorce.

Great D.U.I. Attorney
Unfortunately, I had to obtain an attorney for being arrested for a DUI. I had an eye-to-eye free consultation with Attorney Fisher herself the day that I contacted her and she explained to me the process we'd go through if I chose her to represent me in this matter. Everything went just like she said it would. I had my DUI charges dropped to Reckless Driving and she was there every step of the way. Very professional, friendly, knowledgeable. Takes pride in her work and is very serious about what he does. I highly recommend Attorney Fisher.

Fair and No Nonsence Divorce Attorney
Attorney Fisher was my third lawyer that represented me in my divorce. It took three to find the right one. My previous lawyers were dragging out my case and billing me $1000 monthly- for nothing! With Jody I had the support and advice that I needed. Jody is extremely knowledgeable. She always kept me informed throughout the proceedings and my bills were never a surprise. Most important -Attorney Fisher is tough as nails when negotiating in and out of the court room. I highly recommend Jody Fisher.
