Public Interest Litigation and Counsel

Our attorneys have played leading roles in some of the most important public affairs lawsuits affecting our state and county. For example, we have represented a group of organizational and individual plaintiffs in the ground-breaking challenge to Florida’s congressional and state senate redistricting under the constitutional Fair Districts Amendments, arguing novel and critical issues in the Florida Supreme Court, appellate court, and trial court. We also regularly provide legal advice to candidates in some of the most high-profile state and county elections. By way of other examples, we have represented the Miami-Dade County Property Appraiser in an action to establish the constitutional nature of the elected office, the Town Clerk of Miami Lakes in a legal action to determine the Town’s mayor, and a number of interested parties as amici curiae in a federal First Amendment challenge to a Florida law prohibiting doctors from inquiring about firearms in their patients’ homes.
