Civil rights litigation is some of the most complicated trial work a law firm can do. Civil rights lawsuits are almost exclusively handled in federal court. In most cases, the litigation and opinion of the district court is only the first in a long, multiple-step litigation process. Most civil rights are appealed and many seek review by the United States Supreme Court.
