As governmental entities, our municipal and public entity clients must be mindful of First Amendment and free speech considerations in everything they do from ordinances and resolutions that they pass to permitting self expression in the workplace.  First Amendment protection for speech, however, is not absolute. Our municipal attorneys are experienced in counseling government clients on acceptable regulation of speech, such as obscenity, fighting words and content neutral, time, place and manner restrictions.  Whether the issue is free speech relating to permissible use of public facilities or signage and zoning regulations, we help our clients formulate policies and pass laws that accomplish their purpose without infringing upon individuals First Amendment rights.
