Prominent Michigan attorney Geoffrey Fieger, 72, had a stroke earlier this month and is now in active rehabilitation, his wife and a business associate said Wednesday.

In a statement, Keenie Fieger said that her husband had an elective procedure March 1 for a minor heart arrhythmia. Following the procedure, it was determined that he had suffered a stroke.

“The recovery time from an event such as this varies from patient to patient, therefore it’s difficult to predict how long Geoffrey’s recovery will take and when he will be back in the office,” Keenie Fieger said in the statement. “For those of us who know Geoffrey, he’d love to be back to work yesterday.”

James Harrington, vice president and managing partner at Southfield-based Fieger Law, said in the statement that Fieger is currently “awake, resting comfortably and actively engaging in rehabilitation.” He said he spoke with Fieger this week and encouraged him to take care of himself.
