Civil Rights

In addition to our defense of law enforcement professionals and employers in civil rights cases, our litigation attorneys have decades of experience defending public officials and municipalities against a wide variety of civil rights claims. From housing discrimination claims attacking land use regulations; to free speech claims by students and public employees; to free expression rights of “street preachers;”  to the rights of inmates to special religious accommodations; our attorneys have extensive experience litigating the parameters of the constitution in real life situations. The intersection between individual constitutional rights and the rights of public officials to implement laws and regulations designed to promote public safety and security is a complex and fluid area of the law which is influenced by the unique facts of each case and cultural trends. Our understanding of the constitutional rights, long standing legal precedent and our awareness of the zeitgeist of our evolving times enable us to effectively assist public officials who find themselves and their organizations being accused of depriving an individual’s civil liberties.
