Her successful track record in all of these areas, as well as her high degree of ethics, have earned Ms. Fetzer an "Excellent" peer review rating through Avvo.

    Ms. Fetzer has delivered presentations on family law topics to continuing legal education program attendees, and she has provided input on proposed family law legislation. Her professional affiliations have included the National Association of Counsel for Children and the Family Law Section of the Sacramento County Bar Association.
