Leon Weiss
eon Weiss is a 32 year veteran of the trial wars, having tried over 170 civil and criminal jury trials to verdict. Weiss started his career as an assistant public defender in Miami, Florida, representing indigent people charged with serious crimes. In Miami, Leon developed a solid reputation as a well prepared, tireless and ferocious courtroom advocate, handling thousands of criminal matters from misdemeanors to death penalty murder cases. Weiss deeply believes that all persons accused of crimes must have their constitutional rights vigorously protected, first, because this is a guiding principle of our democracy and second, because anything less weakens the constitutional protections for all people. In 1983 Weiss returned to his native Michigan and for 25 years was a sole practitioner, specializing in state and federal criminal defense, plaintiff's personal injury, commercial litigation and professional licensing defense. In the fall of 2008 he was privileged to join the firm of Geoffrey Fieger, his childhood friend and high school football teammate. At Fieger, Fieger, Kenney, Johnson & Giroux, Weiss will concentrate his practice primarily on criminal defense, with occasional participation in challenging civil matters. Leon Weiss is proud to be a member of a firm comprised of dedicated, principled and supremely skilled lawyers who all share his focused devotion to their clients. "I have the same burning passion to achieve justice for my clients that I always had. To say my old friend Geoff Fieger also has that passion, is perhaps the understatement of the ages. I am very excited about being on Geoffrey's team again and look forward to a long and fruitful association."
