Civil Rights

Our attorneys handle a wide range of civil rights matters and have worked with the United States Department of Justice to prosecute multiple cases. We represent our clients in cases of, for example, discrimination, harassment, and retaliation concerning housing, employment, education, and police conduct. We also have litigated First Amendment or other constitutional issues on behalf of individuals, organizations, and classes.

Our attorneys have successfully obtained million-dollar judgments as well as other large recoveries in civil rights cases. The firm's attorneys have prosecuted these cases on behalf of individuals and entire classes of plaintiffs. Recently, our attorneys obtained a $6 million judgment for a class of Latino immigrant employees working in the construction industry. The firm's attorneys also were instrumental in securing a judgment of over $1 million for one family in a housing discrimination case in which the family had suffered virtually no economic loss.
