Today, FMGR offers a wide array of legal and practical expertise. As this region's largest local law firm, our clients benefit from "one stop shopping" for many types of legal representation.

At FMGR, high-quality, effective legal representation is only the starting point. FMGR representation is cost-effective, as well.
FMGR is Highly Skilled Local Counsel
While FMGR is typically primary counsel before this region's courts, we are regularly honored to receive assignments as local counsel, from distant legal specialty counsel who require our in-depth knowledge of the regional state and federal courts, local court rules, local jury pools, local contacts, and the use of our facilities in litigation support. FMGR welcomes your inquiries toward cost effective and capable local representation in class actions, environmental matters or other litigation.
