Joel M. Furman focuses on criminal defense law, and select civil litigation matters, in private practice in Orange and Los Angeles counties. Prior to his current practice, Furman worked as a deputy public defender in the Orange County Public Defender’s office for more than six years. Over that time, he represented thousands of indigent clients at all stages of criminal justice proceedings. Reaching favorable verdicts for many of them, and with the experience of dozens of misdemeanor, felony and mental competency jury trials, Furman earned a reputation as an aggressive, compassionate, client-focused advocate. Now in private practice, Furman is able to maintain this mission while also utilizing the civil litigation process to achieve justice for his clients.

Furman earned his JD from University of California, Berkeley School of Law (Boalt Hall), and his BA from University of California, Santa Barbara.

Re: Edward McCaffery

Edward McCaffery wrote an op-ed about how the new stimulus bill includes a tax break for the 1%. He said, "Under the change, our rich taxpayer couple... can now deduct an unlimited amount of 'excess losses' in real estate against income from other sources. So now real estate moguls with lucrative day jobs or bountiful capital gains from other investments can go back to living tax-free."
