Michigan is a state in the Great Lakes region of the upper Midwestern United States. Its name derives from a gallicized variant of the original Ojibwe word ᒥᓯᑲᒥ, meaning ‘large water’ or ‘large lake’.
Practicing for nearly 40 years, Geoffrey 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. In fact, the Detroit College of Law at Michigan State University named The Geoffrey Fieger Trial Practice Institute in his honour.
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.
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 United States 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.
