What Our Clients Say

Fishwick & Associates is a great law firm. When it was crunch time, they were there for me. They listened to me and researched the law thoroughly. John Fishwick, Monica Mroz, and the staff were great to work with. I highly recommend them.

Virgie

Mr. Fishwick has a comprehensive command of the law and is a powerful presence in the courtroom. His intelligence and his work ethic make him a strong advocate and a relentless defender. He’s a fighter who adheres to the highest ethical standards.

Guille

First class service from the Fishwick team. My first contact was with Amy Guthrie. She led me right to Mr. Fishwick. They did a super good job for me. Thank you all for winning my case.

Peggy

At every step, I felt that Mr. Fishwick, Ms. Ching, and Ms. Guthrie were including me in deliberations, sharing knowledge and strategy, and working hours upon hours to prepare (well in advance of deadlines). They are kind and respectful as well as savvy and thorough. I cannot recommend them more highly.

Virginia’s Hazing Statute Provides Criminal Penalties and Enables Civil Claims

The dictionary defines hazing as “an initiation process involving harassment.” That definition does little to capture the humiliating, abusive, and dangerous acts that are associated with hazing in American universities and high schools.
