Civil rights are different from any other rights we have as citizens of a free country. They represent basic principles of democracy and fairness, and protect our individual abilities to live life on our own terms. Because of that, whenever a person’s civil rights are violated by another — whether that person is an employer, a police officer or a government agency — the violation is deeply personal.

Named one of the leading civil rights law firms in the country by Newsday, Leeds Brown Law, P.C., is committed to advancing and protecting the ideals and rights guaranteed by the U.S. Constitution, the Civil Rights Act and other important legislative acts.

At Leeds Brown Law, PC, the majority of our civil rights practice is devoted to protecting the First Amendment rights of our clients, including the ability to use free expression in their viewpoints and artistic endeavors. Our lawyers handle civil rights cases for clients in Nassau County, throughout Long Island, and elsewhere in the New York City area, and on behalf of groups and individuals nationwide.

As a firm, we have experience in all aspects of civil rights litigation, and are frequently sought out by radio, television and print media journalists to discuss these topics. Our practice includes cases of sexual harassment, discrimination and Title VII violations, equal protection issues, free speech, and much more. In all of these, we take great pride in providing high-quality representation and service with integrity and professionalism. We build relationships with clients that are founded on trust that help them get through their current difficulties with a minimum of stress and delay.
