|Lawyer Website: Geoffrey Fieger|
Driven for justice and winning, Geoffrey Fieger, one of America’s most legendary lawyers, has built a multimillion dollar law firm dedicated to the ideals of his activist lawyer father, Bernard, and the influence of his mother, June, an educator and teachers’ union organizer. He’s won more multimillion dollar awards than any other lawyer in the country, including his very first trial. Some of his cases include the defense of Dr. Jack Kevorkian, the Jenny Jones Show trial, and the defense of Nathaniel Abraham. He is a fighter who won’t back down when he knows he is right. He is a true champion for all those whose rights have been violated. Respected by his friends and feared by his opponents, they all agree: he’s the most prepared, the most intimidating and the most charismatic – and he’s also the lawyer they would in a New York minute if they were in a real jam, friend or foe alike! He’s been the star of the Fox series, Power of Attorney, and of the CBS radio program, Fieger Time. He appears regularly on CNN, Fox, MSNBC and other networks, commenting on various legal issues and cases. Today, The Insider Exclusive takes an inside look at the man, the star lawyer, his beautiful wife, Keenie, and his amazing energy and passionate advocacy.
