Maria Fischer is dedicated to helping those who have been injured through her trial advocacy and extensive litigation experience. She is committed to seeking justice and achieving the best possible outcome for her clients.

Maria began her career as an Assistant State Attorney in the Seventeenth Judicial Circuit, in and for Broward County. She handled a wide variety of cases and worked her way up to managing a high case load of first-degree felonies and crimes that are punishable by life. Maria gained strong litigation skills during her time as a prosecutor, appearing in court daily for trials, motions, and hearings. Prior to working as a prosecutor, she worked as a Certified Legal Intern at the Office of the Public Defender in Gainesville, Florida, giving her experience defending clients and a perspective from both sides of the law. Maria amassed 30 jury trials during her career in the criminal justice system.

After leaving the State Attorney’s Office, Maria worked for a well-respected boutique law firm in Fort Lauderdale, where she assisted in creating the products liability practice area for the firm and focused on medical device cases, helping individuals battle some of the largest companies in the world. She then joined one of the leading personal injury firms in Florida, where she handled an immense number of cases from start to finish. During this time, she helped recover millions of dollars for those injured due to the negligence of another party.

Maria earned her college degree from the University of Miami and her law degree from the University of Florida. During law school, she had the prestigious opportunity to work as a summer judicial clerk for Justice Barbara Pariente at the Florida Supreme Court. As a lifelong resident of South Florida, Maria has a strong passion to help her community.
