Civil Rights

Civil rights law can be complex, nuanced and emotionally charged, and the stakes are always high. That’s why so many people turn to Skelton Taintor & Abbott’s top-ranked attorneys when their basic rights are challenged. You matter, and we will protect you.

ST&A attorneys have a natural edge and a well-earned reputation for success in civil rights cases. We help public and private clients create and implement effective policies in their workplace and successfully defend their interests at the negotiating table and in both state and federal court.  We also assist individuals in ensuring that the laws are followed and that their rights are protected.

The ST&A civil rights law team negotiates and litigates questions of:

  • Freedom of speech and freedom of religion
  • Due process and equal protection
  • School and educational rights and obligations
  • Discrimination based on age, sex, race, disability, national origin, color, race, religion, sexual orientation, and other protected characteristics

We stay ahead of current case law on rapidly evolving issues and stand firm for what we know is right. Our reputation commands respect across the state. Our centralized location on the historic riverfront of Auburn, Maine, keeps us accessible to the clients we serve and lets us keep the cost of our premium services lower than comparable firms.
