The Largest Verdicts

Since 1980, when Geoffrey Fieger won a $1 million verdict in his first trial, Fieger Law has achieved more than 157 verdicts or settlements of $1 million or more. Many of these cases have set precedents and set new state and national standards.

Record-breaking victories include $144.5 million in a birth trauma case in Michigan, believed to be the largest medical malpractice verdict in the U.S. in 2011, and a $56.5 million verdict in a civil rights claim involving a jail death, the biggest in Indiana history.

Unlike many law firms that are quick to settle, Fieger Law is not afraid to go to trial.

And we’re not afraid to win.

    The Terrorists Won

    The U.S. is about to release the Senate report on the use of torture on prisoners during the Bush Administration. Although previously classified, the redacted report is expected to conclude that no significant intelligence was obtained through brutally torturing prisoners. I am sure some Americans who saw “Zero Dark Thirty” will insist that torture was effective, [...]

    What I Do

    For decades now a coalition of business interests have conducted a campaign to belittle the role of attorneys in our society. In fact, if you believe the common stereotype, lawyers are ruining the world. I come across this attitude a lot when socializing, in the form of jokes or the occasional hostile comment. A lot [...]

    In My America: David & Goliath

    Where can a wrong be righted in spite of money and influence? Where can an ordinary person’s voice be heard above the noise of the rich and powerful, and where can justice prevail and the truth be told? Where can David take on Goliath and win? Right here in America, in the courtroom, where I work [...]

    Fieger Time Blog: Birth “Trauma”

    One of the more difficult types of cases that I handle is the result of medical negligence that leads to a child being injured during birth. It is a gut-wrenching situation when a baby is injured for life, and it affects the lives of their entire family. Many of these children suffer from brain injuries that render them [...]

    Fieger Time Blog: Crisis at the Border

    The flood of women and children creating the crisis at the Texas border is not an immigration problem. It is a refugee problem. These children are fleeing countries where there is no rule of law, countries like Guatemala, El Salvador, and Honduras. The murder rate in these countries is more akin to a war zone [...]

    Fieger Time Blog: Nobody Expects the Spanish Inquisition!

A man is being given the third degree about something minor when, out of exasperation, he says “Well, I didn’t expect the Spanish Inquisition!” Then suddenly a group of men dressed in red cleric robes burst through the door and says “NOBODY expects the Spanish Inquisition!” Well, [...]

    Fieger Time Blog: The Conservative Divide

    Researchers call it “internal consistency.” It is the quality of a theory whereby the basic principles lead to a predictable outcome consistent with those principles. It is a quality profoundly lacking in the current version of American Conservastism, and in full display at the “Faith and Freedom Coalition” convention in Washington this week. There, among [...]

    Fieger Time Blog: Bergdahl and the Real Threat to Americans

    Jon Stewart got it exactly right with his Daily Show routine on the conservative media mania over the Bergdahl exchange with Taliban leaders from Gitmo. He called it “Home is Where the Hate Is” encapsulating the hatred being expressed toward Sgt. Bergdahl and President Obama. We’ve talked before about my feelings about Bergdahl (we don’t [...]

    Fieger Time Blog: Media Begins Second Campaign for War

    Déjà vu. I turned on the television to watch the Sunday morning news shows a couple of days ago and it was like watching the same goblins from 2003 spouting their gobbledygook. Crystal, Wolfowitz, Bremer, McCain, Feith, Cheney … the same guys who were wrong about everything concerning Iraq calling for us to invade Iraq [...]

    Fieger Time Blog: Something Right – and Here in Detroit

    Fieger Time Blog: GOP and Sexual Dysfunction

    The GOP is the party of sexually dysfunctional men. That was NOT a reference to old white men (and the problem of ED per se). Rather it is a reflection of their obsession with sex and misogyny. The most recent example among many was the column of George Will (the wannabe intellectual heir to William [...]

    Fieger Times Blog: Bergdahl

    Many of you have seen my series of commercials “My America.” In them, I try to emphasize the values and liberties that make our country so special in the world and in history. Since we are having another “America” moment created by the media on the return of Sgt. Bergdahl from captivity in Afghanistan, I [...]

    Today is the anniversary of D-Day and the focus has been on the men who sacrificed so much to preserve liberty. They deserve our gratitude, but more than gratitude they deserve our efforts. The fight for liberties continues, not just in the mountains of the Hindu-Kush, but in the courtrooms of our country. Our liberty [...]

    Fieger Time Blog: On John Conyers

    One of the truly decent men serving in Congress is John Conyers. The recent flap about not gathering enough valid signatures to place his name on the ballot is not a reflection on his lack of popular support. Rather it is due to a law (that is probably unconstitutional) requiring those gathering signatures to be [...]

    In a memorable passage from Joyce’s “A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man” he was confessing to a friend that he had lost his faith. The friend responded “Does that mean you have become a Protestant then?” to which he responded “I said I had lost my faith, not my mind.” Lately I [...]

    Fieger Time Blog: Banksters

    Morgan Stanley CEO James Gorman made news recently when he admitted that the Glass-Steagall Act should have never been repealed by the Clinton Administration. The Glass-Steagall Act was passed during the Great Depression to prevent another stock market crash and Depression, and it worked for decades. Clinton Administration members, notably Secretary of Treasury Robert Rubin, [...]

    It used to be that the onset of spring was marked by certain rituals such as Opening Day, and changes consistent with warmth such as green grass and blossoms on the fruit trees. Baseball is here in the “D,” but seeing a night game now is more akin to being at a hockey game. It [...]

    The latest attempt by the GOP to block unemployment benefits is to finally agree to reinstitute/extend benefits, but only if the costs could be offset by reductions elsewhere in the budget. What a wonderful opportunity for Progressives. To restore benefits would require approximately $26 billion. Where, oh where could we find that kind of money? [...]
