Geoffrey Fieger

Geoffrey Fieger is our exclusively recommended Personal Injury Law expert in Michigan on the Advisory Excellence website. If you need assistance in this area, please contact Geoffrey directly using the contact details listed above.

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.

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.

Jason A. Neville

Born and raised in Wyoming, Jason Neville grew up the son of one of Wyoming’s most respected defence trial lawyers. Jason spent 19 years defending doctors, product manufacturers, oil and gas companies and corporate defendants in injury cases with Wyoming’s premier defence firm. He earned a reputation as a tenacious and respected advocate, able to master the complex medicine and science behind catastrophic accidents and injuries; distilling the facts into a simple and compelling story for his clients and winning with juries.

Jason became disenchanted defending insurance companies and businesses against injured plaintiffs; using his talents against those injured by someone’s negligence. He repeatedly saw good cases sold out cheap because the plaintiff’s lawyer wasn’t willing to try the case or unable effectively to tell their client’s story; a grave disservice to the injured family and a win for the insurance company.

Jason brings his considerable knowledge of the inner workings of insurance and corporate defence to fight for the injured. He keenly understands defence tactics; how they build their case, their weaknesses and how to leverage these to maximise case value and win. Jason’s varied trial experience spans complex medical negligence, carbon monoxide injuries, insurance bad faith, oil field accidents, traumatic brain injuries and high stakes corporate disputes. Jason continues to accept select corporate cases on behalf of small companies unfairly stifled and bullied by big business.

Jason earned a BA in English with a minor in American Indian Studies from the University of Wyoming in 1997; and his JD from the University of Wyoming in 2000.

Jason has served over 10 years on the Board for Make-A-Wish Foundation of Wyoming, twice as its chair. He is a past chair of the Board of Professional Responsibility for the Wyoming State Bar, appointed by the Wyoming Supreme Court, serving two total terms. He teaches across the country on trial practice and strategy. Jason also volunteers his time to teach trial skills at the University of Wyoming College of Law and volunteers for Equal Justice of Wyoming, assisting the indigent find legal help.

Jason is married with a daughter and son in high school. He spends his time outside of work on Wyoming’s streams and rivers fly fishing; and in the mountains training for and running ultra-marathons at the 50 mile and 100 mile distance.

Brooks West

S. Brooks West II is an experienced injury attorney and founder of West Law Firm. He graduated on the Dean’s List from West Virginia University in 1996 and then earned a Doctorate of Jurisprudence from the Thomas Jefferson School of Law with the following awards and accolades:

  • Thomas Jefferson Trustees’ Scholarship
  • American Jurisprudence Award for Excellence in Torts (Personal Injury Law)
  • National Dean’s List

Brooks then spent several years working for a large personal injury law firm where he helped litigate complex, massive personal injury and environmental lawsuits, like the Nitro Dioxin Class Action against Monsanto. Brooks really enjoyed working to help hold Monsanto accountable for the harms they caused the citizens of and around Nitro, West Virginia. However, Brooks realised he prefers to work one on one with wrongfully injured clients where he can better help them achieve their individual goals compared to representing thousands of clients at one time in a class-action lawsuit.

Brooks also noticed that although there were plenty of personal injury law firms in West Virginia, there weren’t plenty that put clients first ensuring that each one receives excellent, caring service and outstanding financial results.

“Brooks established the West Law Firm to satisfy that need.”

Staying true to our mission is why West Law Firm continues to be a top-rated personal injury law firm with a successful track record of helping people who have been wrongfully injured at work, in natural gas mining accidents, automobile accidents, on dangerous property, and by other acts of negligence.

Brooks is admitted to practice law in a number of state and federal courts including the West Virginia Supreme Court of Appeals; The State Bar of Georgia, the U.S. District Court, Southern District of West Virginia; the U.S. District Court, Northern District of West Virginia; and the U.S. Federal Court of Appeals, 4th Circuit.

Brooks also enjoys financially supporting and volunteering for numerous charities including the Kanawha Charleston Animal Shelter, Manna Meal, and Mission West Virginia. When not working, Brooks enjoys hiking and spending time with his wife, children, and dogs.

Why did you become an attorney?

From a young age the thought of becoming an advocate always appealed to me. The mere idea of having a profession, the education, and the ability to appear in court to present an argument lured me in. Upon turning 16 and obtaining a drivers license, I obtained employment as a runner at a law office. I maintained the same employment until the end of my college days at UNLV. Gaining experience from the attorneys and familiarising myself with the court house. The influences I received throughout that opportunity sealed the deal. After college it was straight to law school. The practice of law presents challenges on a daily bases far from the mundane 9-5. Frankly, my personality is incapable of a day to day desk job without lashing out. The constant argument with insurance adjusters and defence attorneys over liability issues and medical records, fighting for what’s right, suits me well.
