Law Firm
The Fierberg National Law Group remains the only legal team focused on representing families, survivors, and others in lawsuits and other legal proceedings nationwide involving fraternity hazing, school violence, serious personal injury, wrongful death, sexual assault, Title IX violations, and other misconduct. Unlike other law firms, our work seeks to create systemic change for our clients, leading the Inside Higher Ed to report that “Fierberg is leading one of the most significant college discipline lawsuits in higher education.” If you’re evaluating lawyers to represent you, ask the attorneys you’re interviewing if they have successfully initiated ground-breaking lawsuits in this particular field of law that have received this distinction and caused one of the largest public universities in the country to petition the U.S. Supreme Court for relief from its losses and the precedent set in the federal trial and appellate courts.

330
Million
We have obtained and collected over $330 Million in verdicts and settlements against individuals, corporations, fraternities, educational institutions, enablers, and con-apologists responsible for harming our clients. While financial recoveries are important, and it is not unusual for firms to tout such results, we take great pride in our unmatched record of establishing legal precedent in numerous states, in both Federal and State Courts, obtaining non-economic concessions and accommodations from Defendants, and creating meaningful legacies and foundations for our clients.

 

We established the legal specialty, going so far as to create the first and only national school violence practice groups within the American Association for Justice (“AAJ”) and the National Crime Victim Bar Association (“NCVBA”).

Our legal team has the training, experience, and confidence necessary to overcome tough legal obstacles and well-heeled lawyers.  If we are not licensed to practice in the state where tragedy has occurred, we obtain special permission to practice and associate ourselves with qualified local trial counsel – combining local attorneys with national expertise – giving you the best legal representation.

The law firm worked hard to put this team together for two principal reasons:  We believe in our clients, and we believe our clients’ pursuit of justice must be supported by intelligent, trained, passionate firepower.

Parents and victims justly demand that comprehensive changes be imposed upon those who caused or failed to prevent their trauma. We have sought and secured enforceable concessions from defendants designed to make institutions better managed and safer, allowing personal legacies to endure.  We have compelled schools to make their campuses safe by investigating claims of sexual assault, disclosing risk information to the public, holding fair and lawful hearings, punishing perpetrators, and protecting and accommodating survivors by waiving tuition and housing costs, implementing academic accommodations and stay-away orders, revising victims’ grades and transcripts, complying with Title IX, state law, and university regulations, and generally, act responsibly towards victims of such tragedies.
