About Ian Fusselman

Ian Fusselman argued that the city of San Diego created a dangerous mix of cars and pedestrians at the 2014 "Zombie Walk" parade in which one woman was seriously injured.
Ian Fusselman graduated from USC Law School in 1998 and litigated personal injury cases for 20 years. During his time as a plaintiff’s attorney, Ian helped to bring in more than $185,000,000 in settlements and verdicts, with more than 30 settlements of $1,000,000 or more. He has received several honors, including nominations as Top Attorneys, Best of the Bar, Super Lawyer and as one of the Top 50 Attorney in San Diego. He was recently recognized for obtaining one of the 50 largest personal injury settlements in California in 2016.  During his time as a defense attorney, he learned exactly what motivates insurance companies to settle. While Ian is proud of his successes in the courtroom, he witnessed first-hand how clients benefited from settling cases without litigation. As the founder of 20PercentAttorney.com, Ian’s goal is to help maximize his clients’ recoveries by avoiding costly litigation.

The family of a 23-year-old U.S. Navy sailor killed in a motorcycle crash is suing the City of San Diego, claiming that the city should have known the road dangerous and riddled with potholes.

In addition, Ian can afford to lower his contingency fee to just 20% because his clients don’t have to pay for the cost of expensive overhead and litigation staff. By employing a careful screening process, Ian only takes on cases that should settle without the need for filing suit. For cases that don’t settle, Ian will provide clients with referrals to several qualified litigation firms.
