A “Big Picture”
Perspective

We are go-to litigators for clients ranging from working families to prominent executives and billion-dollar corporations. We have significant experience on both sides of the “v.” in state and federal courts around the country. We represent a wide variety of clients in complex litigation because we are motivated by doing the right thing for our clients, regardless of who they are and their station in life.

Constitutional and Civil Rights Litigation

BlockFIrm_Civil_Rights_Litigation

Block Firm lawyers vindicate constitutional rights. We have won important civil rights rulings in state and federal courts from coast to coast and against government at all levels—federal, state, and local. Sometimes we are advocating on behalf of businesses and industry groups challenging unreasonable regulations. Sometimes we are advocating on behalf of people whose rights have been trampled by powerful state actors. Our cases span various areas of constitutional (and adjacent) law, from the First Amendment to the Commerce Clause to the Due Process Clause. What our cases have in common is a commitment to upholding the rule of law.

Representative Results:

  • Federal injunctions barring enforcement of commercial speech
    infringements.
  • State declaratory relief barring enforcement of alleged tax obligations.
  • Long-term federal injunction barring enforcement and prosecution
    under state laws.
  • Ruling expanding due process and equal protection rights of students
    accused of misconduct.
  •  Removal from office and subsequent indictment of multiple local
    officials for using their power to violate citizens’ civil rights.
  •  Multiple state and federal decisions enforcing due process interests.
  •  Federal habeas relief for African priest inexplicably detained for years
    awaiting asylum (which was subsequently granted).
