For the 3rd year in a row, Benchmark Litigation named Gjording Fouser the “Idaho Litigation Firm of the Year.” 

Gjording Fouser is consistently recognized as one of the leading litigation firms in Idaho. Our trial lawyers represent businesses, hospitals, and professionals in a variety of areas, including: construction, employment law, insurance defense, medical malpractice defense, product liability and professional malpractice defense.

True Trial Lawyers – 2016, 2017 & 2018 Idaho Litigation Firm of the Year

Gjording Fouser’s greatest asset is the extensive trial experience of its two leading lawyers, Jack Gjording and Trudy Hanson Fouser.  Collectively they have been lead counsel in more than 200 civil jury trials over the course of their careers, and they have been recognized nationally and regionally as superior trial lawyers.  Chambers USA interviewees say “[Gjording Fouser is] particularly sought after for its experience handling jury trials.”  Although the vast majority of civil cases are settled, Gjording Fouser has the reputation that, if requested by their clients, without hesitation, they will go to trial.
