Public Employee Free Speech
Are you a public employee who has been disciplined for engaging in speech which is protected by the First Amendment? You need a Los Angeles free speech lawyer who understands and appreciates your First Amendment rights.
“Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.” – Amendment 1, U.S. Constitution
Our free speech law firm has helped government employees who have been disciplined or faced wrongful termination for speaking out on political, or work-related matters. Under the Constitution, you have a right to free speech, and we will help you protect that right.
- A public employee went outside the chain of command and talked to the governing board about low morale and poor treatment of employees. We are proud to have successfully represented that employee.
- A district attorney issued a gag order for all employees. When an employee spoke out, our attorneys represented the employee. The court ruled in the employee’s favor because of the overly broad gag order.
If your right to free speech has been abridged, you need a lawyer willing to file a federal civil rights claim on your behalf.
