Over the past few decades, Loevy + Loevy’s legal advocacy has had a sizable impact on civil rights in the United States. We have uncovered widespread practices of police and prosecutorial misconduct in cities including Chicago, Los Angeles, and Boston. We have won record-breaking wrongful conviction verdicts for innocent exonerees. We have forced the public release of pivotal police video footage and government reports. We have secured verdicts and injunctions for prisoners denied their constitutional rights. And we have championed class actions on behalf of protestors. We also have, and continue to develop, other practice areas that align with our values, such as cases addressing privacy rights and general tort claims.
