Fred Thiele (b. August 26, 1953) is a Democratic member of the New York State Assembly, representing District 1 since 2013. He previously represented District 2 from 1995 to 2013 after winning a special election.

Thiele is a village attorney for Sag Harbor and a self-employed attorney. He has also been an attorney for the Town of Southampton and East Hampton Town Planning Board; counsel for East Hampton Town Zoning Board of Appeals and Assemblyman John Behan; and an intern for the New York State Assembly.
