HART — Oceana County Chief Assistant Prosecutor Erin Fisher resigned from her position this week and has taken a job as an associate attorney with Springstead Law Offices in Hart.

Fisher, who began the job of chief assistant prosecutor Jan. 1, 2013, will remain working in the prosecutor’s office until Aug. 26.

“On July 22, 2014, I, Erin Fisher, resigned as Chief Assistant Prosecutor for Oceana County after careful consideration and lots of prayers,” Fisher said in a written statement. “My last day in the courthouse will be Aug. 26. I’m thankful for the opportunities I’ve had here, and the relationships I’ve built with colleagues and the connection my position has given me to this amazing community of Oceana County. It has been truly life changing. I’m not moving far away, in fact, I’m moving just across the street. I will begin employment as an Associate Attorney with the Springstead Law Offices in September.”

“We wish her the best,” said Oceana County Prosecutor Joe Bizon, who is now seeking a replacement for Fisher. “It’s a specialty position,” he said of the job that pays a starting salary of $50,000 per year. The job opening is being posted on a “prosecutor-specific site,” he said. The last time the position was posted on the site, over 60 resumes were received, he said. Bizon does not have a specific deadline for filling the vacant post, but said he would like to get someone hired “as soon as possible.”

Springstead Law Office serves Oceana, Newaygo and Mason counties, according to its website and specializes in divorce and family law, Social Security disability, drunk driving, criminal defense, personal injury, general litigation, wills and probate, guardianships and conservatorships, landlord/tenant, and neglect and abuse matters.

Fisher said she will be handling “general practice” duties at the Springstead office.
