Benefit From The Experience Of Our Collaborative Team
Our attorneys and legal team are like a family. We all come from different backgrounds and hold unique perspectives, but we value one another and the insight that each member brings. Together, we have more than 90 years of collective experience. When you partner with Fury Duarte, you can benefit from the knowledge and skill of our entire team.
We Thoroughly Prepare Every Case For Trial
At Fury Duarte, all of our attorneys are accomplished litigators. If necessary, we will confidently take your case to trial and fight for your best interests. Not all lawyers are good courtroom advocates. We know how to thoroughly investigate the facts of your case and anticipate the opposing party’s arguments. We know the local courts and judges and how to tell your story in a concise and compelling manner.
However, not all cases benefit from going to trial. We always seek to resolve your case as efficiently and effectively as possible. If we are able to negotiate a favorable settlement or plea deal on your behalf, we may take this route instead. We will give you an honest assessment of your case prospects and provide advice on how to proceed.
You hire a lawyer to help you overcome a legal hurdle, whether that is a serious injury or criminal charges. We work hard to develop a strong case strategy that pursues the best outcome possible. We take our job as your legal advocate seriously and fight for your rights and best interests each step of the way.
This mindset has allowed our team to secure millions of dollars on behalf of our clients and to be recognized for our hard work. Francisco Duarte has been selected for inclusion in Washington Super Lawyers from 2004 – present and Best Lawyers in America 2013 – present, and he is a member of the Multi-Million Dollar Advocates Forum.
Steven Fury was selected by the American Board of Trial Advocates to an invitation-only national honorary organization for the trial bar in 2000. Less than 100 members out of more than 28,000 from the Washington State Bar were selected.
