Who We Help

Public employees

We won the case that stopped big government unions from taking money out of unwilling public employees’ paychecks. Now we’re fighting to protect the Janus rights of every public employee.


Every child has the right to attend a school based on their unique educational needs, and we help you make that happen.


We stop the government from getting in the way of growing your business.


We fight for free speech in all its forms, including the ability to support the causes you believe in.

Every day, regular Americans like you – parents, entrepreneurs, advocates and public employees – are being denied their basic freedoms. We’re working to give them an open door to do what’s best for them and their families.

We take on the big fights.

We Support You

Reach out to us and tell us what’s going on. We’ll do our best to help and provide you with the resources you need.

We Fight For You

If your situation requires legal action, we’re here for you and ready to act.

We’ll walk with you through every step, and keep you informed and comfortable.

We Don’t Back Down

In court, we are bold and innovative.

We make the government put the interests of Americans above their own, which often means breaking new legal ground.

How we helped them
