CONSTITUTIONAL LAW AND LITIGATION

Our lawyers have many years of experience in constitutional law and litigation in federal courts across the country. We have helped our clients protect their constitutional rights and recover damages when those rights have been violated. We also work hard to promote a better appreciation and recognition of our civil liberties under the law.

Attorney Page Pate is a nationally-recognized constitutional lawyer and legal analyst.

  • First Amendment litigation including defamation (libel and slander), protection for whistleblowers who face retaliation, challenging unlawful arrests for participating in non-violent protests, religious rights litigation and appeals.
  • Second Amendment challenges to state gun permit laws, excessive taxation on gun or ammunition purchases, right to carry laws, bans and other regulation
  • Eminent domain litigation relating to government action to take private property without full and just compensation.
  • Section 1983 and Bivens lawsuits to recover damages for intentional civil rights violations by government officials, usually relating to First, Fourth, and Eighth Amendment cases
