First Amendment

We regularly represent clients sued because of their diverse First Amendment activities. We have handled appeals in state and federal courts arising from significant defamation judgments, injunctions enjoining future petitioning activity, judgments imposing liability for commercial speech activities, application of other civil statutes (such as employment laws impacting free speech), and judgments impacting religious liberty.
