He appears regularly on CNN, Fox, MSNBC and other networks commenting on various legal issues and cases. After three decades of practicing law, Fieger is best known for winning trials. He has won more multimillion-dollar awards than any other attorney in the country, including his very first trial. Some of his cases include the defense of Dr. Jack Kevorkian, theJenny Jones Show; trial, and the defense of Nathaniel Abraham the youngest person ever tried for murder as an adult in the U.S. Fieger has won record verdicts in Michigan, Indiana, Ohio, Pennsylvania, West Virginia and South Carolina and many of his trials have generated national attention and set important legal precedents. In every case and with every client, Geoffrey devotes himself to getting justice for his clients. He is a tireless and fearless champion for those whose rights have been violated.
