Civil Rights


Civil rights cases against local, state and national governments –┬áThe First Amendment comes first for a good reason. We recognize that some of the most extreme civil rights violations happen at the state and local government levels. The attorneys at Powers, Jodoin, Margolis & Mantell pioneered federal civil rights law suits against local governments for violations of free speech rights of public officers and employees. As advocates of free speech we have represented clients ranging from far-right extremists such as the Nationalist Movement and David Duke to exotic dancers and needle exchange programs and acted as cooperating attorneys with the American Civil Liberties Union in dozens of cases.
