FAC has had the good fortune of being represented by some of the best First Amendment and open-government lawyers in the country. We list them here to thank them and to acknowledge their expertise in areas such as libel law, free speech and free press, open-meeting laws, federal FOIA and California CPRA, copyright, trade secrets, protecting journalists’ sources, and appellate litigation.
We also list them here to assist our users in finding a lawyer. While FAC does not provide a “lawyer referral service” (California Bar organizations claim an official monopoly in that area), the next best source for consumers is a list like this one. After all, if any organization knows who are the best free speech and access lawyers, it is FAC.
