About Fergus, A Law Office

For over 35 years, I have been helping individuals and businesses alike resolve complicated legal problems involving high-stakes issues.

After practicing in a large law firm for over 20 years — where I rose to be one of its leading trial lawyers — I wanted to remove the big law barrier and help people and businesses on a more personal, one-on-one level. In doing so, I am now able to focus all my efforts on providing personalized, tailored legal guidance that's designed to produce results. Through thorough preparation and sound judgment based on decades of experience, I am able to provide you cutting-edge representation that can convert your story into a compelling narrative the trier of fact can understand.

Gary Fergus has been selected to the Bar Register of Preeminent Lawyers each year since 2008 and has had an AV Preeminent* peer review rating (Martindale-Hubbell's highest peer recognition for ethical standards and legal ability) for over 20 years.

I Can Help You Resolve Complex Disputes

Having represented Fortune 500 companies and high net worth individuals, I understand the nuances of getting measurable results discretely.

I am always dedicated to putting my clients' interests first.

Throughout my legal career, I have been a significant factor in obtaining a number of multimillion-dollar settlements and verdicts in high-profile cases, including:

  • A $1.2 billion post-trial settlement in In re Western Asbestos

  • A $250 million post-trial settlement in In re J.T. Thorpe

  • A $750 million post-trial settlement in In re Thorpe Insulation

  • $200 million in settlements to date in In re Plant Insulation Company
