Our fraternity hazing lawyers are committed to justice for the victim, the victim’s family, and will do everything in our power as litigators to raise consciousness on campuses so that the hazing and the culture that promotes it changes for good and no one else has to experience what you’re going through. This is a culture issue. And it’s not your fault.
Fraternity hazing lawyers are not all the same. If you are looking for a fraternity hazing lawyer, you want someone who will not only represent your best interests, but who has the experience to back it up.
Doug Fierberg and the team at the Fierberg National Law Group (TFNLG) brings over 20 years of experience working with fraternal law, winning justice for victims of violence and misconduct in schools, and working with anti-hazing organizations to raise awareness and promote prevention. Even if your situation feels complicated and nuanced, and you’re questioning whether or not you should even try to seek justice, the team at TFNLG see the issues clearly. We’re experienced and we’re on your side.
Maybe you’re unsure about whether hazing has occurred. Anti-hazing organizations define hazing as any action taken or any situation created intentionally that causes embarrassment, harassment or ridicule, and risks emotional and/or physical harm to members of a group or team, whether new or not, regardless of the person’s willingness to participate. The Fierberg National Law Group (TFNLG) is committed to providing you with clarity and confidence in whether what you’ve experienced or are currently experiencing, would be considered hazing under the law.
Even when they are certain they are a victim of hazing, individuals often question “Should I report hazing?” due to feelings of shame or anxiety around the act of reporting. This is normal, but it doesn’t need to be the norm anymore. Victims often consider these individuals to be their friends and the organization they are a part of, their home away from home. This too is normal, and why an entire culture shift is necessary. Part of shifting that culture is having victims and their families team up with The Fierberg National Law Group, the nation’s most renowned fraternity hazing lawyers, to hold those responsible for promoting and condoning a culture of hazing, accountable to the fullest extent of the law.
This is a systemic, cultural issue. For a sampling of prior victims and their stories, read our hazing blog.
Our fraternity hazing lawyers have made fraternal law our life’s work because we believe that schools and universities should be where young people go to learn and grow in a safe, positive environment. Full stop. Is that an accurate description of your experience? We’ve been in practice for more than 20 years, and sadly we’re needed more than ever. Because we believe that one individual victimized by misconduct on campuses is too many. We won’t rest until hazing is a thing of the past.
Responsible organizations do not manage risk “upside down,” ceding control over health and safety issues to the youngest, least-experienced, and often impaired persons. Young men and women need the support of the adults around them to change hazing’s damaging and often dangerous practices and attitudes, and we are passionate about working together with you to be part of the solution.
Douglas Fierberg, and The Fierberg National Law Group, are committed to holding the responsible organizations and individuals accountable for their actions and behaviors, or lack thereof.
Beyond the millions of dollars paid to our clients in compensation, we 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 non-profits that use the money to educate the public and protect students and families.
There are a number of ways to connect with us to get the clarity you need. We can set up a video conference for those outside the DC area; we will also travel to meet with you at your home. We have successfully represented a number of people who struggle to speak and/or understand English as well.
