I have been practicing exclusively in the area of Family Law and Domestic Relations for my entire career.  After graduating from the University of Denver law school, I accepted a fellowship position with the Eighteenth Judicial District in Colorado working exclusively in Family Law and Domestic Relations with the Honorable Judge Angela R. Arkin. The fellowship experience allowed me to see the judges’ perspective and how judges dealt with and analyzed issues. Working closely with judges taught me that good advocacy, preparation, and aggressive representation is very important to reach resolutions in or out of the courtroom.

I believe strongly that family law attorneys must do everything they can to minimize the emotional turmoil that divorcing families go through. Divorce is a difficult thing and if you have to go through with it, then you deserve the right attorney by your side. I approach each Client’s case as the completely unique situation that it is. Sensitivity and understanding sometimes resolve family law matters without the need of the court’s involvement; however, in other circumstances, the case calls for aggressive and persistent advocacy. My job will be to assess your particular factual situation, your goals, and objectives in order to work with you on developing a legal strategy that will allow us to address your situation and meet your needs. 

Through my legal education, experience, and litigation skills, I look forward to successfully helping you through the complicated legal system while making sure that your integrity and peace of mind remain intact.

Great lawyer
No one wants to be in a situation where a lawyer is needed. But when you do, you hope you find an advocate that is competent and considerate of your circumstance.Mr. Zuhair Fanash was exactly the type of legal advocate I hoped for. He was responsive, attentive, listened to my needs and concerns and offered practical advice. He moved quickly, was conscientious of expenditures and helped me resolve my issue with much less drama and pain than I anticipated. I highly recommend Mr. Zuhair Fanash.

Zuhair Fanash is an excellent lawyer
April, 2018 I hired attorney Zuhair Fanash for my divorce case. He didn’t ask for much money. At the beginning, he tried to talk with the other partner to make an agreement but he left the America going home to Egypt. So, we went to the court house. He did a good job and I got my divorce, allumny, full custody of my children and child support for my kids. Zuhair Fanash is honest and fair. I will never ever forget what he did. He is such a great attorney.

Glad to have chosen ZuZu
ZuZu is an amazing attorney. I was referred to him by a friend who hired him for her divorce and was extremely happy with his services. I hired him and he helped me through the whole process. ZuZu is someone you can rely on to answer the phone no matter what, give great advice, stand up for what is right and to always have the ability to comfort you. I am really glad I hired him.

Great charisma, professional lawyer
Mr. Fanash worked on my case. He was very professional and knowledgeable about the law. He informed me of every step he was taking to help my case, and explained in details all the pros and cons of every move and decision we take. He is very conscious and fair with his fees and time charging. He was always available to answer any questions or concerns that i have whether by phone, text, or email within a reasonable period of time. I for sure will recommend him to any of my friends or family member who needs a good, honest and professional lawyer.

Amazing
Zuhair "Zuzu" Fanash is one of the great attorneys I have ever encountered. Not only are his ethics beyond approach, he is a phenomenal courtroom attorney with great instincts. His mission has always been to serve the client's needs first . . . which he has done for the last several years. I worked with Zuzu in Colorado and found him to be simply superior. If you need help in a family law case, he's your man in Orlando and beyond. I cannot give him a greater recommendation than I would hire him myself and I have been doing similar work for a quarter century.
