EXPERIENCED IN BOTH CRIMINAL DEFENSE LAW AND IMMIGRATION LAW IN LAS VEGAS AND THROUGHOUT NEVADA.

Amber Fuhriman, Esq., belongs to a rare class of Nevada attorneys who is equally competent in both criminal defense and immigration law. She has helped numerous foreigners gain permanent residency and citizenship. And when her immigrant clients face criminal charges, she knows how to defend them so as to minimize the chances of them being deported.

 

So far Amber has accrued tremendous experience both in legal research and writing and in the courtroom. She already argued in front of the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals in San Francisco twice, and she has been victorious on appeal to the Board of Immigration Appeals. She has defended against a wide range of criminal offenses, including DUI, battery domestic violence, robbery, and possession of child pornography. 

 

Amber graduated from Thomas M. Cooley Law School with Magna Cum Laude honors and in the top 3% of her class. She was first in her class in two courses: professional responsibility and death penalty law. She also excelled in Cooley's Moot Court and Mock Trial teams.  

 

While still a law student, Amber trained for a career in criminal defense as a law clerk with the Washtenaw County Public Defender's Office in Ann Arbor, Michigan, and then the Clark County Public Defender's Office in Las Vegas, Nevada.

 

Amber can practice law in both state and federal court in Nevada as well as the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals and the Board of Immigration Appeals. She earned her bachelor's degree in political science from Idaho State University. Amber has also practiced law in the areas of personal injury and family law.

Succinct & concise & empathetic to boot!
I am 60yrs old and had NEVER been arrested or in serious trouble until i found myself in a soap opera type nightmare with LVPD reading me my Miranda rights! I was being falsely accused of bullying & assaulting my elderly mother that I was caring for. I was scared out of my wits and having trouble seeing ANY way out of going to jail. Suddenly i went from loving daughter to an alleged abusive caregiver. My unethical, greedy brothers thought they might get cut out of our mothers will so they plotted (to the best of their ignorant ability) to discredit me and manipulate my mother into tossing me into jail and them directly into her bank accounts. I had heard of Amber months ago in passing. I NEVER thought I’d need a defense attorney. Thank GOD for Amber Fuhriman. I got on line and frantically searched for a defense attorney. I recognized her name and called. She answered. The police had gone to corroborate (or not) my version of events when Amber answered my call. She listened patiently to my plea for help to keep me from being arrested. She quickly assessed my situation, asked a few important questions and then calmly extracted me from the abyss I had begun to sink into. She told me precisely what COULD happen next. Thats what happened. She explained what to do if and when it did happen, and as succinctly and concisely as a preacher on a pulpit would, she calmed my frayed nerves with facts. She allowed me to function in a calmly educated manner. when I felt like I was being railroaded she armed me with facts so that I didn’t fall into my evil brothers trap: Rattle me so I would melt into a puddle of tears, followed by outrage and indignation, my brothers pushed all the buttons that were installed in childhood, all fueled by age old sibling rivalries. Amber helped me keep my cool and not lose control of my emotions. She stated facts and kept me out of jail. I want people to know what she did for me. I did NOT get arrested. Ambers counsel allowed me to maintain my dignity in a moment when I could have lost it. Shes that good. Thank you Amber.

The best criminal and immigration lawyer that I could ever ask for.
Ms Amber Fuhriman was a beacon of hope to my spouse and I at a time when our options appeared to be none and the likelihood of a satisfactory resolution seemed impossible. Before we hired Ms Fuhriman, we talked to several lawyers and they all said there was no chance for my spouse to be able to come back to the US after being sent back to his country, and much less to ever get a green card. Not only was she able to defend him from an unjust accusation, her calm and empathetic demeanor offered emotional succor to myself and family. Thanks to Ms Amber my spouse is back in the country with me and he is now a legal resident of the USA. We are eternally grateful for her service and I hereby recommend Ms Amber Fuhriman without reservation. My name is Rodrigo, I am from Los Angeles, California.

She's the BEST
I hired Ms. Fuhriman after I received a speeding ticket. She came highly recommended by several friends and now I see why. She was able to negotiate my ticket down so that I owed a fraction of the original charge and she did ALL of the work. I couldn't be more pleased with her professionalism and expertise. A+

Amazing Lawyer
After my husband was involved in an accident we didn’t know where to turn to get his ticket resolved. Luckily the Lyft driver recommended Amber Fuhriman. She was easy to talk to and resolved our ticket issue for us so we had no worries.

Very Helpful
Amber is very helpful and resourceful. I felt lost when trying to figure out how my fiance was to get the proper Visa so he can travel to the U.S. and we can finally be together. Amber reassured me and answered any questions we had, even if it was just something that seemed small. My husband and I just got married yesterday and we're now ready to start out lives together! We're no longer apart. Thank you for all your help Amber!

Clear, concise and completely knowledgeable
Amber was able to take a confusing mix of criminal and immigration litigation, sort through it, organize it and then provide a brief that, not only cited case law, but gave me a concrete series of actions to resolve my issue. I highly recommend her.

Very knowledgeable, You want her on YOUR SIDE
Very knowledgeable, You want her on YOUR SIDE Thank You so much Amber and David at the Las Vegas Defense Group!! I read the info on the website and received a call back IMMEDIATELY from David. Set up an appointment to come in to the office to meet with Amber and she is just the most knowledgeable attorney you can imagine. She took her time to assess my case from A to Z, she answered all my questions. I have been living in fear and anxiety for several months and she killed all of my fears one by one by addressing them with a prompt legal answer. I was so blown away and SO RELIEVED!! On top of everything, she not only made my fears go away, but she offered different solutions and ways to go about my issue. She told me to think about it, which way is more comfortable and fitting for me personally, and that`s the way she will go about resolving the issue. Then she stated her fee for the entire representation and it was much less then what other lawyers have asked for less services before. When the consultation was over, I thank her so much for the valuble information, it was literally life changing for me, now I know what to do and I do not have to begin every day having to worry myself to sick. You know whaaat she said??!! She said "NOTHING, YOU DON`T OWE ME NOTHING." Amber did`t wanted to take my money!!! LOL, I am sure there is not another attorney in Las Vegas or in the entire West Coast to whom you have to say twice ...here take my money. So we agreed, that I will decide which way I want to approach my case then I will give her a call and I will be so honored and problem-free that she will take my case and represent me! Dear staff at Las Vegas Defense Group, thank you for professionalism!

She was able to quickly get resolution on my case and the outcome was what was best for me and my family. I can't thank her enough for the hard work and dedication, I am so glad I chose the Las Vegas Defense Group!

Grateful to You
I had gone through a tough legal situation recently, and before that time, I had never needed to seek legal support in my life. So when I was in that 'what am I going to do', stressful auto-pilot mindset, all I really knew was that I wanted the best in law, I wanted to feel protected. Fortunately for me and anyone who chooses Las Vegas Defense Group, the greatest is received. Amber Fuhriman, Attorney at Law, was compassionate, knowledgeable, and supportive from beginning to end. She was clear and always informative of my process. She made me feel taken care of and reassured.

Amber is the Best Kept Secret in Vegas
Amber is the best kept secret when it comes to immigration attorneys in Las Vegas. My wife was held by ICE for a deportation hearing. She also had criminal charges pending in another case. I was totally freaked out and didn’t know what to do or what my options were. I contacted about a dozen immigration attorneys. I could tell Amber was the best attorney for the job from the moment I spoke to her. She is very articulate and incredibly knowledgeable about all aspects of immigration law. She explained everything I needed to know in simple easy to understand terminology. Amber successfully negotiated a voluntary departure and my wife was allowed to leave the country with no penalty. A number of attorneys told me that my wife was going to face deportation but thanks to Amber that didn’t happen. My family I are so grateful and we would highly recommend her to anyone in this situation.

She rocked it!
A combination of my poor decisions had created a very undesirable situation in Sin City that I needed legal expertise to solve quickly. I was contending with some serious charges. Hardly the key to the city. I knew of no one that had gone through this and resorted to an internet search for Las Vegas Attorneys and the prevailing laws. I relied on web feedback and reviews for my decision making process. I came across quite a few references to LVLG and went to their site. I began to see a trend of successes with real people facing serious odds like myself. It was my best choice to make that call. David was my first contact and he assured me that they would do everything in their power to help me. As promised a lawyer from the firm called shortly thereafter, went over things, and I we began to prepare for battle. I provided the documents they needed from me and they acquired a court date immediately. To my surprise it was all handled in one day. I arrived in the morning and met with David in the conference room. He conducted a brief pre-game meeting to bring me up to speed and inform me of any changes. Amber, my attorney, joined us later and proceeded to formulate a game plan for the 1:30pm arraignment. She explained in detail what I was potentially facing and proposed several scenarios with possible outcomes with the charges. Her personable nature and candor were appreciated. Once there, I sat there in the courtroom, waiting very little time as she went to work. Next thing I knew, all that was left was for me to do was to stand in front of the judge and agree to the negotiated terms. After paying the fine and signing the paperwork, I was back on the road by 3pm and only a few Benjamins less in the wallet! Thanks David, Amber, and Thank You LVLG! BR

First hand experience with Amber Fuhriman
DuhJoshua Leyva January 20 at 5:54pm · Reviews App · I am a 27 year old father of two. Recently in trouble over wreckless decisions that have destroyed my family and career. Rebuilding my life would not be possible without the help of Las Vegas Defense Group. Its only been a few months since my infraction and I am back on the road to regaining control of my life. They have walked me through my case since I was in detention and have since carried on with the work ethic that makes the case seem personal to them. Even through times when I might have decided to quit the struggle they reminded me that they are here to help and will help if you remain committed and focused to your own cause. The people here come to do a job and they do it well.
