After graduating from law school, Matthew Thurmer completed an internship at the San Diego City Attorney’s Office in the Civil Prosecution Unit, comprised of select, high level attorneys who prosecute the City’s legal rights and claims.  There, Mr. Thurmer gained invaluable insight into the civil prosecutorial process.

Mr. Thurmer has been with McDougal, Boehmer, Foley, Lyon, Mitchell & Erickson since 2014. His practice is broad and involves both prosecution and defense work.

Some of Mr. Thurmer’s accomplishments at the firm include obtaining judgments through “prove-up” hearings before a judge and dispositive pre-trial motions, enforcing judgments through proceedings such as judgment debtor exams and levies, terminating a spousal support order for the supporting spouse, and negotiating settlements favorable to the client.
