Summary

Robert Fugal, JD, Utah Bar admission October 6, 1982. Robert Fugal loves to help people move from finiancial insecurity to financial strenght. Robert Fugal was born in American Fork and raised in Pleasant Grove and Lindon, Utah. After graduating from Pleasant Grove High School, with the help of scholarships and part time work in Orem and Provo, he graduated from BYU with a bachelors degree in 1977 and a law degree in 1982. He served as a law clerk to the Honorable Eckhart A. Thompson, United States Bankruptcy Judge for the Central District of California, then practiced as an associate in the bankruptcy law firm of Ryder and Walter in Fresno CA. In 1988 he moved back home and co-founded with Kevin Bird the firm of Bird & Fugal to serve people needing debt relief services. Mr. Fugal focused his practice on representing debtors in workouts and Chapters 7, 11 and 13 bankruptcies. With the decline in bankruptcy filings in 2005, Mr. Fugal expanded his practice to include estate planning, wills, trusts, healthcare directives, powers of attorney, and tax problem resolution. Robert is a devoted family man. He and his wife Eloise have happily raised their children together despite the challenges of undergraduate and graduate school and subsequent work and practice development. He loves being with and serving his family. He enjoys taking his turn caring for his 95 year-old father. Besides family and church he loves camping, hiking, swimming and canoeing. He loves studying about and following natural health remedies.
