• Freedom, fairness, equality.

Civil Rights

For almost a quarter of a century, our firm has litigated precedent-setting civil rights cases against powerful and resourced governmental and institutional opponents.

Our firm has defended the free speech rights of students, teachers, government workers, political demonstrators, and prisoners. We have fought for fairness and equality by bringing race, gender, sexual orientation and age discrimination claims in federal court. We have taken on government, institutional, and educational abuse by holding unethical prosecutors, abusive police, complicit university administrators, and unscrupulous politicians accountable for their misconduct.

We are passionate about justice and proud of our reputation for taking on important social causes. It is why we became lawyers.

“A tireless advocate for the individual or family … victimized by this system.”
