Introduction: For a combined 60+ years, Mr. Fuhrman and his partner, Michele Vallat, have represented men and women facing divorce, child custody, and child support conflicts , as well as domestic violence cases. And they have negotiated complicated and high value property settlements. Also, Mr. Fuhrman brings 40 years of experience representing businesses from their formative stage to dissolution, including contract, employee, lease and many other issues. And for more than 44 years, he has represented adults and juveniles charged with crimes, from homicide to DUI, from drugs to theft, and many others. He also does juvenile court dependency work. In short, Mr. Fuhrman has appeared in more than 10,000 court hearings and trials and negotiated thousands of settlements in family, business, criminal and personal injury matters. Ms. Vallat focuses on family law and serves as a settlement judge for the North County Branch of the San Diego Superior Court. Their legal assistant Shayne DeCamara has been with them for nearly a decade. An initial half- hour consultation is free and, when unable to visit in their office, you can meet by Zoom or telephone. Testimonials on his website include the following: * Lawyer colleague: "Bill has a feel as to when to 'stand tough' and when to 'settle'. I believe him to be an efficient lawyer and an effective advocate." - Charles * Former client: "I just wanted to send a note, thanking you for making the most difficult point in my life a little easier. I appreciate you working with me on the retainer amount and having patience because I know, at times, the other party was frustrating. Thanks again! I'm glad my 1st 'hiring an attorney' experience was great." - Veronica * Former client: "This letter is to express my heart-felt appreciation for all your help during my case. Everything went smoothly during and after the trial, as Mr. Fuhrman and your staff planned. Please remember that money alone cannot compensate for all the hard work you did for my case. If I know someone who needs the best lawyer in town, I will definitely recommend you." - John

Bill was honest and to the point. His realistic approach and advice were sound. Bills expertise really was present as we had our conversation.

Attorney Bill Furhman is the lawyer you want to represent you. He has guided me through the grueling process of a divorce. If he cant answer your question on the spot he will go above and beyond to find the answer for you. I strongly recommend Bill Furhman and his staff. Thank you Bill Furhman

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.

I can’t say enough about Mr. Fuhrman and his staff (Thanks Val and Morgan!). These great people are knowledgeable, timely, thorough, ethical, caring, and very well respected by the commissioner handling my case. I’ve never seen the commissioner pay so much respect to an attorney as Mr. Fuhrman, possibly admiration. This is HUGE. All I can say is… retain them before the opposing side does.
