Attorneys at Drummond Woodsum regularly defend municipalities, public officials and public school systems in cases alleging violations of state and federal statutory and constitutional rights. We have recently handled civil rights matters involving such issues as freedom of speech, freedom of religion, due process, equal protection, school funding, the use of excessive force in making an arrest, unlawful searches and seizures, and discrimination and harassment on the basis of age, sex, race, disability, national origin, and sexual orientation.
