“It is important I be a friend to the person going through a divorce, custody dispute, etc. Going through 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.”
Myra Chack Fleischer founded her own law firm, Fleischer Law Office in 2001. In 2013, she added the respected law office of Richard R. Ravreby to her firm, forming the new firm Fleischer & Ravreby now based in Carlsbad, California. Fleischer serves as Lead Counsel with a focus as a high asset divorce lawyer in litigation that includes divorce, property, custody and support, settlement agreements, mediation, asset division and family law appeals. Her financial background combined with her law expertise is a key factor in Myra’s success in representing clients in cases where there are issues involving complex asset divisions. She strives to avoid court where possible, driving settlement of assets through mediation, while maintaining a formidable reputation as a fierce litigator, when necessary. Myra holds a strong belief in the advocacy of children to the sensitive practice of domestic law.

“I could not more highly recommend Myra. I started my divorce proceedings with another lawyer and changed to Myra. I only wish I had been with her from day one. She is tough and aggressive but very fair.”
“Myra and Dan Martin are the BEST. Despite an very difficult case with one of the worst firms in town who just wants to run the meter on their clients Myra and Dan have always “DONE THE RIGHT THING”. In the legal community they are respected and looked at as model and ethical lawyers in a very challenging field. i would recommend them to everyone and hoping you never have to.”
“AWESOME LAWYER! AWESOME SERVICE! AWESOME RESULTS! 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!!!!”
