Joan M. Meredyth

Joan M. Maredyth was born and raised in Tucson, Arizona. She attended the University of Arizona majoring in Psychology and Sociology, before moving to Berkeley, California in 1967. She later graduated from California State University, Sacramento, with a B.A. in Cultural Anthropology. Ms. Maredyth became employed as a paralegal in the law office of Attorney Marcus Vanderlaan, hoping to return later to graduate studies in Anthropology. Instead, she was mentored by Attorney Vanderlaan under a Law Office Study Program. She became a licensed attorney in January, 1987, without having attended law school. Since then, she has practiced law in Sacramento, California, and is a Certified Specialist in Family Law, acting "as counsel" in the Law Offices of Isaac L. Fischer, her son. In addition, she and her son represent teachers in job-related matters.

 Due to a Spambomb attack, our contact form is having issues!  

A notification about our contact form inquiries:  A few weeks back,  we endured a spam-bomb attack.  We received literally tens of thousands of emails, via our contact form on the CONTACT page.  Our web guys leapt into action, and put in a "ReCaptcha" element, to try to stop the spam bombs.   And it worked, hooray. However, it apparently also caused a glitch, in which we have NOT received all the submitted inquiries, from real customers and prospective customers. We apologize for this and we're in the process of fixing it. In the meantime, if you do not hear from us same-day, or at the absolute latest, within 24 hours, please email us directly, not using the CONTACT form, but the email address on our CONTACT page in the "How to Reach Us" column, thank you. We apologize for any inconvenience and we hope it's all resolved shortly. 

Thank you for your understanding.
