Areas of Focus
A history of representing workers and people of all backgrounds.
The attorneys of Despres, Schwartz, & Geoghegan have established a reputation as innovative litigators, willing to take on difficult and contentious cases that other firms deem too challenging.
We have fought to secure the rights of workers in the United States Supreme Court (PDF), and have sued state and local governments to fight for free speech, democracy in public education, and funding for human services. We have also sued state and local governments to challenge school closings, gerrymandering, and the privatization of public resources like parks and parking meters.
Fighting for equity and justice
As part of our work in public-interest litigation, we take pride in representing those who are so often left without a voice by the legal system—victims of wage theft, usurious payday loans, plant closures, and discriminatory labor practices. Our long record of success also includes fighting for more democratic unions, working with union members to ensure their voices and needs are represented as part supporting a healthy and sustainable labor movement.
