StopHazing.org

The StopHazing.org website grew out of a group of concerned students, educators and parents called the MJTF (multi-jurisdictional task force.) This organization first formed in 1993 at the University of New Hampshire in order to pass a state anti-hazing law. Since the successful passage of NH’s first anti-hazing law in 1993, the group has expanded to other states and hopes to support anti-hazing efforts across the nation.

The National Crime Victim Bar Association

The National Crime Victim Bar Association

Almost 26 million Americans are victimized by crime each year. Many victims suffer from more than the trauma of the original crime. All too often, they are also left with expenses for medical procedures, physical rehabilitation, counseling, lost wages, and lost earning capacities. The National Crime Victim Bar Association (NCVBA), an affiliate of the National Center for Victim of Crime, helps victims find attorneys and allied professionals who can assist in obtaining the resources necessary for physical and emotional healing. In addition, the NCVBA provides technical assistance to attorneys representing crime victims in the civil justice process.

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

    "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
