The effects of racism are not vanquished by simply changing a law. It will take intentional dismantling of power structures, regular critical reflection, and collective action to undo these deeply embedded problems…These fights are ongoing and demand justice.

Does Coyle Browne Law represent employers, landlords, or the police?
No. Our employment and civil rights lawyers only represent employees, tenants, victims of police brutality or police misconduct, or other victims of civil rights violations.

We work for you
Our employment and civil rights lawyers are aggressive, honest, and tireless advocates for our clients.
Devin Coyle and David Browne are as good as it gets when it comes to attorneys and being compassionate and human. They handled a difficult case for me and we won which was amazing. there is no way I could have done it with any other lawyers due to the sensitivity of some of the subject matter. So much of my past was relieved in the case and they were both so human about it, in the best ways possible—never made me feel uncomfortable.
