Jeremy R. Fietz:
Esq., LL.B., J.D., LL.M.
CEO of TheLawFirm.com
Jeremy is a record setting trial lawyer dedicated to representing and protecting people that have been the victims of negligence by both individuals and greedy corporations. Jeremy and his partners have handled many death and serious injury cases involving everything from auto collisions to nursing home abuse, to dangerous drugs and medical devices.
Jeremy’s cases have been reported in newspaper headlines, and he has been personally featured on over 50 radio and television interviews. He has personally handled cases from California to New Jersey (and many states in between).
Jeremy holds a masters degree in law (an advanced degree beyond ordinary law school) and clerked for a complex litigation judge before starting his practice many years ago. He began trying cases in courtrooms in his very first years as a lawyer and has never stopped putting his skills and passion to use. Jeremy has set trial records for largest verdict has earned newspaper headlines like: “Jurors Praise Attorneys Presentation” and newspaper quotes like “jurors told Fietz ‘your research was impeccable’ and his witnesses were ‘really credible’”.
Jeremy is an invited member of several trial lawyer organizations including, the American Association for Justice (since 1996), the Consumer Attorneys of California, and many others.
In his years of practice, Jeremy saw that people did not know how to find the right lawyer for their case. He witnessed other lawyers who were not experienced with a client’s type of case, fail for their client. As many lawyers are unwilling to tell their clients that the lawyer is not equipped to handle their case, it is the client who suffers when a lawyer lacks the skills and experience to succeed.
Jeremy founded TheLawFirm.com to bring together award-winning lawyers to ensure that there was a place that anyone could go to speak with a real lawyer, (for free) and, if they have a case, be represented by a great lawyer who is a great match for their case.
Jeremy and his partners handle many of TheLawFirm.com’s cases personally, but also call on their association with the best lawyers from around the country to ensure each client’s case is matched with an attorney who has the skills and experience to succeed. Jeremy often teaches that having the right lawyer for your case is as important as the facts of your case.
Jeremy also believes in giving back. In one case, in addition to damages for his client, he had the Court order the defendant (a giant corporation) pay Sesame Street a quarter million dollars (who doesn’t love Sesame Street?).
