Idaho Litigation Firm of the Year
Gjording Fouser is consistently recognized as one of the leading litigation firms in Idaho. For the 5th consecutive year, Benchmark Litigation named Gjording Fouser the “Idaho Litigation Firm of the Year.”
Our attorneys defend businesses, health care facilities, and professionals in employment, insurance defense, medical malpractice defense, product liability and professional malpractice defense cases from pre-litigation through trial or even an appeal. We have the reputation that, if requested by our clients, we will without hesitation go to trial. However, when appropriate, we advocate for early mediation and we participate in more than 25 mediations a year.

Our team is comprised of dynamic individuals. We are trial lawyers. Collectively, we have been lead counsel in more than 300 civil jury trials throughout the State of Idaho. We are leaders. Our attorneys hold leadership positions in Idaho State Bar practice sections, serve on the board of Idaho Women Lawyers, assist with fundraising efforts for the statewide Access to Justice campaign, and serve on the board of the Boise Philharmonic. We are authors and speakers. We present and write articles on a variety of topics, including whistleblowers, e-Discovery rules, telehealth, default judgment, settlement negotiations and permissive appeals. We are volunteers in the legal community. We serve as Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) in cases of child abuse, neglect, and abandonment, we assist low-income tenants in eviction cases, and we provide guidance about wills, paternity and custody agreements to low-income parents.
