(Del Mar, CA) - Myra Chack Fleischer, Lead Counsel for Fleischer & Associates, was selected as a finalist for the prestigious 19th annual Women Who Mean Business Award for 2012. Sponsored by the San Diego Business Journal, the award recognizes dynamic women business leaders who have contributed significantly to San Diego’s businesses.
“I’m honored to be named as a Women Who Mean Business Award finalist and to be included among so many other outstanding and dedicated women. Practicing family law is something I enjoy, because of the personal relationships with my clients and the opportunity to help people change their lives,” said Fleischer.

Fleischer was named Best Lawyer in 2012 and 2011 by the readers of the Del Mar Times and Carmel Valley News; and was named one of San Diego’s “Top Influentials” in 2012 by a panel of community leaders.
Fleischer is active in the Collaborative Family Law Group of San Diego, a dedicated team of attorneys, financial professionals, and licensed therapists and counselors who advocate a cooperative approach to working through family law matters, avoiding the confrontational, stressful experience many people are put through in the court system.
