Radically Good Lawyers®

We routinely sue bad cops and correctional officers, local government, state agencies, and the U.S. government for unlawful conduct. We protect our clients against narcissists and companies who use lawsuits to censor, harass, and dox their critics, as well as those who seek to misuse intellectual property to stifle free expression and competition. We also take on big businesses for their unlawful, deceptive and discriminatory practices.

We are tireless in our pursuit for justice for our clients regardless of who is on the other side of the v.

We work in a lot of spaces to help our clients. These are the areas we focus on the most:

  • Wrongful death, catastrophic injury, and sexual assault involving police, prisons & jails

  • Unlawful and deceptive practices

  • First Amendment, media & activist defense

  • Trademark & copyright litigation

  • Outside general counsel services
