  • Stewart J. Guss

    I had the pleasure of starting the first few years of my career working for Fulton Broemer. Over that time, I worked side by side with Fulton on many complex litigation cases with him as lead counsel. I do not exaggerate when I say that I am the lawyer that I am today because of what I learned working with him. Fulton has an amazing ability to grasp and manage every level of a litigation file, including the individual day to day decisions (the trees), as well as the long term strategy (the forest.) He is gentle to his clients but as aggressive as a bear when dealing with recalcitrant opposing counsel. Although I have had my own practice for 10 years, I regularly refer clients to Fulton in his practice areas with full confidence that these referrals will be well represented. If I had a legal problem in his practice area, I would not hesitate to hire him as my own lawyer.

    Fulton is knowledgeable, experienced, and quick-thinking. He is vigilant in protecting his clients' interest and works hard for the best result. He's the best communicator I've ever had the honor of working with, or for, and I learned much from him. I endorse him with great confidence.
