Civil Rights & Constitutional Law

Civil Rights and Constitutional Law: First Amendment, Second Amendment, Fifth Amendment, and Fourteenth Amendment

Our experience encompasses a variety of civil rights cases in federal and state trial and appellate courts. We possess the knowledge and skill to challenge excesses in government regulation, oppose unlawful government practices, and provide our clients a means to seek vindication of their constitutional rights in various matters, including First Amendment, Second Amendment, Fifth Amendment, and Fourteenth Amendment cases.

We have represented clients in civil rights cases before high courts such as the Supreme Court of the United States, the Supreme Court of New Jersey, the New York Court of Appeals, and the Supreme Court of New Hampshire representing parties and Amici Curiae (Friends of the Court).

We have handled a wide range of matters, including challenges to improper firearms regulations and permit denials, vague policing standards, invalid environmental regulations, and unconstitutional land use restrictions.

Services provided by our attorneys include:

  • Litigating lawsuits on behalf of individuals, civil rights organizations, and business entities challenging excessive government regulation and infringement of federal and state constitutional rights.
  • Preparing and filing Amicus Curiae briefs in federal and state courts.
