Attorney Zuhair (“ZuZu”) Fanash has been practicing exclusively in Family Law for all of his career. ZuZu is a graduate of the University of Denver, Sturm College of Law. As an incoming student, ZuZu was the recipient of the Arapahoe County minority scholarship. During his first year of law school, ZuZu became an assistant to the distinguished Professor Paula Rhodes working on various research projects and helping other first-year students with class work. During his second year of law school, ZuZu earned a spot with the Colorado Court of Appeals as a law clerk. During the summer of his second and last year, ZuZu was picked amongst his peers as a paid summer associate for McElroy, Deutsch, Mulvaney & Carpenter, one of Denver’s premier 16th Street Firms. During his last year of law school, ZuZu interned for the Denver District Attorney’s Office and was assigned to the Gang Unit. It was during this period of his training that ZuZu realized that litigation work was the right path for him.
After graduating and passing the Colorado Bar, ZuZu completed a fellowship with the Colorado Eighteenth Judicial District Court working exclusively on the Domestic Docket. Upon completing his fellowship, ZuZu accepted an associate position with a family law firm and never looked back.
After spending a little over 11 years in Denver, Colorado, ZuZu and his family decided to move back to Florida where he grew up. ZuZu took and passed the Florida Bar in February of 2016. ZuZu joined our firm in August of that same year.
“Being a child of divorce, I understand the emotional complexity of dealing with divorce and its consequences on the parents and children. I recognize that a mutually agreeable resolution to a case is often the best outcome, however, when a mutually agreeable resolution is impossible to achieve, I will be your forceful advocate in court.”
“Whether you are divorcing, wanting to establish a parenting plan, or looking to modify an existing order, I will work closely with you to accomplish those goals. As your attorney, I will educate you on the relevant law pertaining to your case and will help you maneuver through all of the issues to help you reach the best strategy for you and your family.”
Besides being licensed to practice law in more than one state, ZuZu is also fluent in Arabic. He is married and has two boys, Zane and Zachariah. In college, ZuZu was the captain of the soccer team leading his team to twice winning the conference championship. ZuZu was also the kicker for the football team. As a kicker, ZuZu was selected for the NAIA All-American Team and the NCAA Little All-American Football Squad in 1994.
