Geoffrey N. Fieger

The Nation’s Leading Personal Injury Lawyer

Practicing for nearly 40 years, Geoffrey Fieger is a veteran of the legal battlefield. His command of the law, both as a trial litigator and as a scholar, has made him one of the most sought-after attorneys in the nation. Though he has always practiced from his firm’s home in Southfield, Michigan, he is known all over the world for his charismatic trial presence and his refusal to back down from the battles that matter.

The Detroit College of Law at Michigan State University named The Geoffrey Fieger Trial Practice Institute in his honor.

Geoffrey’s legal skill is uniquely well-known, even for a lawyer as renowned as him—he has been repeatedly featured on MSNBC, CNN, Fox, and various other networks to provide legal insight and commentary throughout his career. He has had his own program on CBS radio titled “Fieger Time,” and was featured on Fox’s live court program “Power of Attorney.” Geoffrey has also frequently been in the news as a subject, as he is often called upon to represent high-profile cases on behalf of those facing impossible odds.

In one of his notable cases, Attorney Fieger was able to secure acquittals for every one of Dr. Jack Kevorkian’s assisted-suicide trials in which he represented the doctor.

The Real Reason For Geoffrey Fieger’s Fame

None of these details would matter if it weren’t for one fact: Geoffrey Fieger is a lawyer who wins. He has secured more than 165 verdicts and settlements larger than $1 million, including his very first trial case. He has secured a greater number of million-plus results than any lawyer in the country. He has set records with verdicts and settlements in Illinois, Indiana, Ohio, Pennsylvania, West Virginia, and South Carolina, in addition to his beloved home state of Michigan.

Lawyers who have faced him in court know him to be incredibly well-prepared, knowledgeable, and a force to be reckoned with—ultimately, he’s the attorney that other lawyers would want on their side.

When Geoffrey was facing his own major battle against the U.S. government, he and the legendary Attorney Gerry Spence fought against charges that Geoffrey had made illegal campaign contributions to then-Senator John Edwards. Their work ensured that he was acquitted on all counts.

The Man You Want in Your Corner

Geoffrey, more than renown, more than high-profile cases and large awards, believes the most rewarding part of his job is being a voice for the abused and neglected. His father, a civil rights activist, and Geoffrey himself, have committed their lives and careers to fighting for justice and racial equality. The same passion informs every dimension of his practice.

As a lawyer, as a public figure, and as a private citizen, Geoffrey has made it his mission to be a champion for those who have had their rights violated by the powerful and privileged.

That’s who Geoffrey Fieger is. That’s what Fieger Law is all about.
