Civil Rights and Municipal Liability

Public and private employers and state and local government bodies and agencies engage us for defense in civil rights matters. We also assist private employers that perform governmental functions, such as healthcare providers under contract to prisons. Our attorneys represent public entities against claims brought under 42 U.S.C. Sections 1981, 1982, 1983, 1985 and 1986 and all employers in Title VII matters. We are experienced litigators and appear before administrative agencies and state and federal courts. Matters we handle include:

  • Denial of medical care
  • Due process violations
  • Excessive force
  • First Amendment violations
  • Inappropriate student contact
  • Title IX claims
  • Wrongful convictions
