Despite the risks and media attention given to campus hazing – and the resulting injuries and wrongful deaths caused by this misconduct – fraternities often have access to resources to that shield them from legal responsibility. The Fierberg National Law Group has more than 25 years of experience overcoming those hurdles. Our legal work is working hard to change the tide and has enabled our clients to hold ensure that every fraternity that has injured or killed their loved ones involved in campus hazing death and injury, rape, binge drinking, automobile accidents, unsafe premises liability, and other wrongdoing is held accountable.
Families often demand that comprehensive changes be imposed upon the institutions that caused or failed to prevent campus trauma. We have successfully obtained tens of millions of dollars in settlements and verdicts. We have created institutional and legislative changes, and so too have our clients, using their strength, our advice, and the funds we have obtained for them.
For over 25 years, The Fierberg National Law Group has forced numerous national fraternities, local chapters, and fraternity members to pay millions of dollars in compensation to our clients affected by campus hazing death and injury.
No other firm or campus hazing death attorney comes close to matching the success we have obtained for victims of fraternity hazing and other fraternity and school misconduct.
We know the playbook, the defenses, and the roadblocks that fraternities, fraternity chapters, and fraternity lawyers use to prevent victims from obtaining justice. Outside of the millions of dollars paid to our clients in compensation, our team of lawyers have caused fraternities and universities to reform, established legal precedent to help other victims and families, compelled fraternities to publish the truth about their misconduct and sanctions issued against them by colleges, and forced fraternities to fund independent nonprofits that use the money to educate the public and protect students and families.

We handle hazing lawsuits in all 50 states: Alabama, Alaska, Arizona, Arkansas, California, Colorado, Connecticut, Delaware, Florida, Georgia, Hawaii, Idaho, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Mississippi, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, Nevada, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New Mexico, New York, North Carolina, North Dakota, Ohio, Oklahoma, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, South Carolina, South Dakota, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, Vermont, Virginia, Washington, West Virginia, Wisconsin, and Wyoming.
