Meet Robert Furbish
Attorney Robert Furbish has been practicing law in Maine at the highest level for more than 30 years. The attorneys and clients of Berman & Simmons consistently benefit from Bob’s wealth of experience, strategic insights, and ability to identify avenues of recovery in potential personal injury claims.
Bob joined Berman & Simmons in 2005. He represents clients in a range of personal injury cases, including those involving motor vehicle accidents, medical malpractice, and product liability. Bob handles a full range of insurance coverage disputes, and is an experienced appellate advocate who has briefed and argued numerous appeals in the Maine Supreme Judicial Court.
At Berman & Simmons, Bob works in collaboration with Steven Silin, one of the most successful and highly respected trial lawyers in Maine. In this role, Bob handles much of the investigation, research, writing, discovery, and motion and appellate practice in some of the most complex personal injury cases in the state.
“We are very much a team-oriented practice where everyone contributes to successful outcomes for our clients,” Bob says. “Many of our cases involve people who, through no fault of their own, have faced life-changing injuries and are fighting to get their lives back. The ability to assist them in a meaningful way is what motivates me and all of us at Berman & Simmons.”
When conventional thinking suggests that there are obstacles to recovery for an injured client, Bob often finds new and innovative ways to pursue a claim. His creative approach helps not only Berman & Simmons’ clients, but all victims of injury who benefit from the positive development of Maine personal injury law.
Bob also serves as Berman & Simmons’ principal editor for Maine Tort Law, which has been an indispensable resource for Maine personal injury lawyers for over 20 years.
