Geoffrey Fieger is one of the most successful trial attorneys in the country. He is constantly in demand as an expert analyst for high-profile media trials. His charismatic and controversial personality made him an instant star of the Fox series “Power of Attorney” and the CBS radio program, “Fieger Time.” He appears almost daily on CNN, Fox, MSNBC and other networks commenting on various legal issues and cases.
After three decades of passionately practicing law, Fieger is best known for winning trials. He has won more multimillion-dollar awards than any other attorney in the country. Some of these trials include the defense of Dr. Jack Kevorkian, the “Jenny Jones Show” trial, and the defense of Nathanial Abraham, the youngest child ever tried as an adult for murder in the U.S. He has won record verdicts in Michigan Indiana, Ohio, Pennsylvania, West Virginia and South Carolina. Many of his trials have generated national attention and set important legal precedents.
In June 2008 after almost three years, Fieger, represented by the legendary Gerry Spence in his final trial, won his own court battle against the Gonzales/Rove/Bush Justice Department when he was acquitted on all counts of alleged illegal campaign donations.
