High Profile Civil Rights Cases

We have worked on some of the largest civil rights cases in the region, which have had major implications both locally and nationally.  We have not hesitated to take such cases simply because of the potential for controversy.  These cases have been resolved both at summary judgment and at trial, and have often involved high-stakes appeals.

Our experience spans a wide range of issues such as equal protection, Obergefell v. Hodges (marriage equality), voting rights, George v. Hargett (process for amending the state constitution), due process for state legislators, Durham v. Martin, and cruel and unusual punishment, Villegas v. Metropolitan Government of Davidson County (shackling during childbirth).  We have also successfully handled complex habeas corpus cases, such as in Lovins v. Parker.

Our representations have spanned both sides of the political spectrum.  Our firm has been a contributor to both the American Constitution Society and the Federalist Society, with our attorneys involved in both organizations.  We believe, in the tradition of John Adams, that every person is entitled to legal representation, regardless of the politics of the moment.
