Two litigators with advanced degree (LL.M) and experience in constitutional law
Consult a litigation attorney with advanced training (LL.M) in constitutional law who can identify and use constitutional issues during the course of trial. Constitutional law focuses on the application of the U.S. Constitution to cases. Few people seek out a constitutional lawyer. However, law firms with attorneys who have experience and additional education in constitutional law offer most clients an enhanced level of service. Constitutional lawyers work with the rights and principles created by the Constitution in a wide variety of individual cases.
You may have a custody issue or an employment law case. Maybe it’s an immigration or criminal law problem. Any of these could benefit from someone skilled in constitutional principles.
