Injuries Caused By Police and Other Government Agents.  A person injured by a police officer or other governmental actor may be entitled to a monetary award for violation of his or her civil rights, pursuant to 42 U.S. Code § 1983.  Our lawyers advance such claims successfully, often for a significant recovery.  

Striving to End Discrimination and Promote Free Speech.  We are working to eradicate discrimination by bringing suits on behalf of clients who have faced discrimination on the basis of race, religion, national origin, gender or disability status. We are also working to fight for freedom of speech by bringing suits on behalf of clients whose First Amendment rights have been violated.
