Attorney Debra Fischl

Professional Mediation Experience

In her extensive career, Attorney Debra Fischl has gained experience in a wide variety of civil law subject matter areas, at all stages of the litigation process, on behalf of both plaintiffs and defendants. The majority of this work has been in the area of plaintiff’s personal injury, including medical malpractice and products liability. Throughout this time, she has specialized in legal research and writing, including appellate work, as well as dispute resolution. A former research attorney in the Appellate Division of the Los Angeles Superior Court, where she researched and drafted appellate decisions, Attorney Fischl has an insightful understanding of the litigation process from a variety of perspectives. Driven by a strong sense of ethics and professionalism, Attorney Fischl brings to our team at Effres & Associates an unmatchable sense of integrity, dedication, and attention to detail.

Above all else, Attorney Fischl prioritizes open communication and open-mindedness. She understands the sense of intimidation that many people experience when facing a legal concern, and is able to make clients feel at ease by being both extremely approachable and informative. Prior to earning her J.D. at Southwestern University School of Law, where she was a member of the Law Review, Attorney Fischl obtained her B.A. in Sociology from CSULA. Following these accomplishments, she went on to earn a certificate in Dispute Resolution from Pepperdine University School of Law.

Her professional memberships include the Legal Writing Institute and, in addition to practicing law, Attorney Fischl has taught mediation and dispute resolution for University of California Santa Barbara Extension. She has also completed mediation training at, and has served as a mediator for, the Los Angeles County Bar Dispute Resolution Services, Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, Los Angeles County City Attorney’s Office, the United States Postal Service Redress Program, as well as the Centinela Youth Services Victim Offender Restitution Service.

Committed to community, Attorney Fischl is a former member of the Board of Directors of the Southern California Mediation Association, Valley Interfaith Council, and Temple Kol Tikvah. For several years, she was involved in the organization of a local fundraising event to help feed the hungry, both locally and globally, in conjunction with the Valley Interfaith Council and Church World Service. Attorney Fischl is currently a volunteer facilitator for the Days of Dialogue, a series of community dialogues on issues such as race relations and the future of policing, organized by the Institute for Nonviolence.
