Fieger Law founder Bernard Fieger was a Freedom Rider in the 1960s, battling for civil rights in the Deep South during an era of great racial unrest in this country.
Unfortunately, that battle isn’t over. As cases of police brutality and racial inequality continue to make headlines, Bernie’s son, Geoffrey Fieger, carries on the quest to help victims of civil rights violations fight for justice.

- Sexual harassment
- Fair housing rights violations
- Improper arrest
- Mistreatment in prison
- Hate crimes
- Migrant worker exploitation
- Police brutality
- Law enforcement misconduct
- Religious interference or property damage

WHAT ARE CIVIL RIGHTS?
Federal statutes enacted after the Civil War and more recently in 1957 and 1964 were intended to implement and give further force to the fundamental personal rights guaranteed by the U.S. Constitution. Such laws prohibit discrimination in employment, education, public accommodation, etc., based on race, color, age, religion or national origin.
The U.S. Constitution further protects individuals and provides relief when a government official or employee acts with deliberate indifference to a person’s health, safety, and welfare, which leads directly to an injury or death. Fieger Law specializes in cases involving the violation of civil rights.
