Fieger partner splitting off to start solo practice

One of Michigan’s most talked-about plaintiff’s firms has something worth talking about once again.

Ven Johnson, partner at Southfield-based Fieger, Fieger, Kenney, Johnson & Giroux PC, announced Friday, May 13, that he will be leaving the firm to start his own practice.

At the Michigan Association for Justice’s annual meeting in Dearborn, Johnson told Michigan Lawyers Weekly that he expects to open his practice in Birmingham at the beginning of July.

In June 2008, Johnson and Fieger Law founder Geoffrey Fieger were acquitted in federal court on charged of illegally channeling money to the failed 2004 presidential campaign of Democrat John Edwards.

UPDATE: According to Crain’s Detroit Business, Johnson has already left Fieger Law, in that Fieger had a disagreement about Johnson’s departure date following Lawyers Weekly‘s above report.
