Our lawyers have significant experience defending civil rights and tort claims brought against governmental entities, departments and officers. In addition to our many legal skills in this area, we are also active in our local communities and statewide organizations. We therefore in many cases know the key governmental decision makers involved in the matters affecting our clients, which adds much value for our clients.
We regularly appear in state and federal court, as well as administrative tribunals, such as the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) and state departments of human rights. In doing so, we represent businesses, professionals and other individuals, and state and local public bodies and officials who are defendants in claims involving alleged violations brought under 42 U.S.C. § 1983, Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, the Americans with Disabilities Act, and other federal and state civil rights statutes.
