Fukuda Law Firm

Legal Services

Criminal Defense

As a former Felony Assistant District Attorney, I have had vast success in trial for every type of criminal case, including Felonies, Misdemeanors, DWI, drug possession, weapon offenses, sex offenses, robbery, assault, and murder. In addition, our firm can represent you if the government threatens to revoke your probation.

Dangerous Products

Manufacturers sometimes produce products based on defective designs that cause severe injury to the user and bystanders. Our law firm consults with design and construction experts to obtain the most significant recovery for our clients injured from defective products. These products could be automobiles, motorcycles, medical equipment, or consumer products. The list is endless.

Estate Planning

Our firm drafts a Will that is custom-made for you. "Gallup's latest polling finds that less than half of U.S. adults, 46%, have a will describing how they would like their money and estate to be handled after their death". So only 46% of Americans have a Will, but we know that 100% should have a will. If you don't let your wishes known for your property before your death, the government will decide who inherits your property. For example, if you are without a will and you and your spouse have a blended family, your spouse's assets are transferred to stepchildren. Avoid the shock of having half of your assets transferred to stepchildren. Other estate documents are beneficial: Durable Power of Attorney, Medical Power of Attorney, Directive to Physicians/Living Wills, and Election of Guardian. We would be glad to discuss all of them with you.

Family Law

If a divorce is inevitable, our firm assists you in protecting your rights to your children and property. Our firm pursues temporary orders while the divorce is pending to state who has primary custody of the children, who exclusively occupies the house, and how much child support is due. After a divorce, it is not uncommon for circumstances to change, requiring an amendment of the divorce order for visitation, custody, or child support. Our firm will bring them to court for contempt if your ex-spouse fails to pay due child support. The court can enforce the order to pay with jail time, probation, and attorney fees.

Mesothelioma and Asbestosis

Many community members are exposed to asbestos, which causes the horrible diseases of Mesothelioma and Asbestosis. Exposure usually occurs while working with asbestos. The asbestos fibers are breathed in, usually as a dust-like substance. Many household members were exposed to this dust without direct contact with the product, which may take years before lung symptoms develop. However, the disease limits lung function and can result in death. Our office can coordinate a no-cost screening for these diseases. In addition, we will pursue the manufacturers of the products that contain these dangerous substances to receive compensation for these ravishing diseases.

Personal Injury

We serve people who have been injured in car accidents. We represent drivers who are not at fault, and passengers, even at-fault drivers, can receive medical care and financial compensation for their injuries. Medical insurance is not required. Our focus is to ensure our clients receive the medical care needed to obtain maximum medical recovery so they can return to their usual activities pain-free. In addition, we remove the worry of medical bills as many medical providers will agree to postpone payment until after the case has been resolved.

Probate

If a loved one has passed, our firm will guide the family through the difficulties of probate. Probate is the legal process of granting title to the deceased property to the rightful heir. Our office handles the details of probate, such as moving a will through the probate process. Our firm also handles the probate of estates without a Will. This heirship/administration process has challenges, but our firm is well equipped to manage them.
