Prior to joining Giroux Ratton, Paul was an associate at Fieger, Fieger, Kenney and Schwartz, at the time a leading ﬁrm representing injured people. While at Fieger’s oﬃce, Paul concentrated on medical malpractice and cases involving law enforcement and correction oﬃcer misconduct. He handled several cases which resulted in multimillion dollar settlements and verdicts including ones that received national exposure and attention. In a case against Lord and Taylor Department Stores located in the Fairlane Mall in Dearborn, Michigan, an eight ﬁgure settlement resulted when security guards caused the death of a man mistaken as a shoplifter. In two other cases which were featured on CBS’s 60 Minutes program, Paul represented prisoners who died from abuse and neglect while incarcerated in Michigan prisons. Each case resulted in a multi-million dollar judgment.
Paul also litigated several lawsuits in which people died from compression asphyxia while in the custody of police. A local pathologist who acted as an expert witness during the cases has gone on record crediting Paul’s work with inﬂuencing better training of police oﬃcers and a reduction of death and injury to people at the hands of local police. While at the Fieger Firm, Paul litigated 14 cases which had results of over a million dollars. Prior to his tenure at Feiger Law, Paul was an associate at the high proﬁle oﬃces of Zeﬀ and Zeﬀ, P.C. where he was exposed early on to high stake, high damage cases and focused on cases involving serious injuries.
