MacArthur Justice Center opens appellate office in Washington, D.C.

The Roderick and Solange MacArthur Justice Center, one of the nation's premier civil rights law firms, has opened an office in Washington, D.C.  The new office in the nation's capital stands committed to pursuing material and lasting change in issues related to social and criminal justice, primarily through litigation before appeals courts around the country and the U.S. Supreme Court.

“Federal and state governments think very strategically about identifying cases that advance their interests in the courts of appeals and high courts of their jurisdictions," said Amir Ali, Supreme Court and Appellate Counsel in the MacArthur Justice Center's Washington, D.C., office. "There is a need for committed, innovative appellate lawyering that seeks to advance the law in a direction that provides greater protection against injustice and violations of civil rights.”

Since its founding in Chicago in 1985, the MacArthur Justice Center has a strong track record of successful litigation leading to key criminal justice reforms. In addition to Chicago and Washington, D.C., the MacArthur Justice Center firm has offices in New Orleans, St. Louis and at the University of Mississippi School of Law.
