Myra Chack Fleischer has been a practicing law in San Diego since 1997. Prior to moving to San Diego and beginning law school, she worked for 10 years as an accountant in public accounting and then as the controller of an international mid-sized software company. Today, Myra has her own Family Law firm that focuses on areas such as property, custody and support, agreements, mediation, assets, and violence and abuse. One of the key reasons she succeeds in this arena is her unique background mix in accounting and business, as well as her belief in the advocacy of children to the sensitive practice of domestic law.In her years of practice, Myra has skillfully guided thousands of clients through the emotional and financial upheaval of a Family Law case. In many situations, she has successfully avoided court driving settlement of assets through mediation. Myra is also a large contributor to the San Diego community. She is actively involved in the school systems, as well as other legal volunteer roles. In fact, in 2003, Myra was awarded the Wiley W. Manual Pro Bono Services Award for her volunteer efforts though the San Diego Volunteer Lawyer Program.Myra thinks of herself as more than an attorney. It is important I be a friend to the person going through a divorce, custody dispute, etc., Myra states. She adds, Going though a divorce is in some ways harder than dealing with the death of a loved one. People need to know it is going to get worse before it gets better. My job is to make the hard parts simple on the legal side, so they can focus on their own healing and moving on with their lives.
