William Fuhrman, is an honest, intelligent, and honest attorney. I would highly recommend him for any of you family and/or business legal needs.
I am so happy that chose Bill to represent me. He handled everything without missing a beat. His staff, colleagues, contacts and entire office were amazing. A true professional. Thanks!
One word quickly comes to mind when I think of Mr. Fuhrman….integrity. He is an honest, hard-working, knowledgable and well-respected man. Going through a divorce is a very painful process and by having the support of him and his staff, I never lost hope. Unlike most attorneys, Bill is quick to return e-mails and phone calls. As busy as this man is, I never felt unimportant. My divorce was ugly and messy but with Bill's direction it was completed in an efficient and timely manner. I have referred more than half a dozen people to Bill in just a two year span and he has never not lived up to or exceeded their expectations. What I came away believing after working with Bill and his associate attorney, Michele Vallat (who is beyond incredible) is justice does prevail.
Mr. Fuhrman is a professional beyond reproach! He has helped my family for years now and I have no hesitation in recommending him to family, friends, and clients.
Bill Fuhrman is the attorney you want representing you. If you are reading this after learning of opposing counsel, I'm sorry.
I just want to express my heart-felt appreciation for all your help during my case. All went smoothly during and after the trial as Mr. Fuhrman and your staff planned. I will be recommending Mr. Fuhrman and the staff to everyone I know.
“Honest and Straightforward” - William Robert Fuhrman’s Client Review I've interacted with Mr. Fuhrman in the past and I thought he was pretty good at the time considering I really didn't know what to expect. I recently contacted him again when a dismissed case came back. Without hesitation Mr. Fuhrman recalled me and my previous situation. I asked if he could help me again? His response had two answers: 1) Yes and 2) This what I've done already to resolve this issue.... Any lawyer can say "I can handle that..." Mr. Fuhrman did more than just say it...he showed it. If you're looking for a firm that honestly is looking out for your interests - contact Mr. Fuhrman right now! You will not be disappointed.
