"Doug Fierberg, Cari Simon, and their team are passionate about achieving justice for their clients. They treated me with respect and great reverence for the trauma that I faced. They were genuinely interested in my well being as a survivor. Throughout all steps of the process, they believed in me and encouraged me. They are true advocates for their clients. I am forever grateful for all that they have done for me. Their diligent work ethic and desire to lessen the burden on survivors has created a renewed hope for me as a survivor. My experience with Doug and Cari has even prompted me to apply for law school so that one day I might also be able to help survivors fight these injustices."

  • Our Ethic

    Our Ethic

    More than 20 years ago, Doug Fierberg was the first lawyer to exclusively represent victims of school violence nationwide. As his legal team has grown, we have always believed that giving back is essential. Thus, our lawyers – for no fee - have compelled wrongdoers to pay hundreds of thousands of dollars in compensation to non-profit organizations whose missions are to eliminate hazing, sexual assault, binge drinking, and other violence from schools.

  • Fraternity Victims

    Fraternity Victims

    "Fierberg is a man of obvious and deep intelligence, comfortable - in the way of alpha-male litigators - with sharply correcting a fuzzy thought; with using obscenities; with speaking derisively, even contemptuously, of opponents. He is also the man I would run to as though my hair were on fire if I ever found myself in a legal battle with a fraternity, and so should you." - Caitlin Flanagan, The Atlantic
