1-2 years

Michael Fullam was born and raised in River Vale, New Jersey. Fullam earned a bachelor’s degree in anthropology and political science from the University of Vermont in 2007. After graduating from the University of Vermont, Fullam worked in a supporting role at Ganer, Grossbach, and Ganer PC in Manhattan with a focus on corporate law and accounting until he began attending California Western School of Law in August of 2008.

During law school, Fullam interned with the Sierra Club, focusing on environmental protection and conservation; Simo Holdings Inc. (a.k.a. No Fear), focusing on copyright infringement and corporate law; and Janathan L. Allen APC, focusing on tax law and civil litigation.

Since graduating from California Western School of Law in 2011, and being admitted to the California Bar later that year, Fullam worked as an independent attorney focusing on contract work; entity creation and management; and homeowners association representation. In June of 2012, Fullam became an associate of Parker Straus LLP’s San Diego office.

Fullam is a second-year associate with Parker Straus LLP, focusing on insurance coverage, insurance fraud, insurance defense and litigation, as well as qui tam actions and products liability actions.

Fullam has represented insurance clients in complex, multiparty insurance coverage disputes; a plaintiff in a high-scale products liability matter against one of the world’s largest electronics manufacturer; qui tam matters involving the egregious fraud against the United States; as well as creating presentations focusing on fraud trends in insurance claims to some of the country’s largest insurance companies. Fullam has proven to be a strong negotiator, bringing numerous cases to settlement.

Fullam is honored to be selected for this distinguished award, and would like to thank the partners of Parker Straus LLP for the nomination.
