Civil Rights

Our experienced civil rights attorneys defend individuals, businesses and governmental entities in varied and complex legal matters affecting and challenging those rights and freedoms afforded all U.S. citizens by federal, state, and local laws and constitutions. 

We have successfully handled and resolved claims of discrimination in the workplace or otherwise; claimed violations of the freedoms of speech, assembly association, equal protection, and due process; zoning challenges alleged to be takings of property; disputed police powers involving use of force or searches; prison matters including medical treatment and staffing policies; harassment claims; and fair housing challenges, among others. 

Our firm has a proven track record for summary judgment and dismissals without trial, which have been upheld by the United States Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit and Ohio’s appellate courts. The law in this area is constantly evolving, and we can help you navigate and tackle these claims, whether through litigation or prompt settlement.
