5 Stars for Mr. Fisher's Fresno Law Firm
"I really can't express how great of an attorney Mr. Fisher is. From day one, I felt like they were there for me and fought hard for my case. I called them one day and the next day they were able to get me in. I met with Mr. Fisher on the day of my consultation (free). I was not passed from one person to the other. The staff was super professional and friendly. They were in contact with me throughout my case, reminding me of appointments and important meetings. I've heard of horrible experiences of people with other attorneys and all I can say is that I was truly blessed." Karen Mavrikis
