Mission Statement

Coyle Browne Law is passionate about defending the rights of workers, tenants, and individuals who have been harassed, discriminated against, or retaliated against because of their race, gender, disability, age, medical condition, or other protected characteristic. Our civil rights lawyers are aggressive, honest and tireless advocates for our clients.

Our civil rights lawyers pride themselves on communication, honesty, and aggressive advocacy for our clients. From the moment you contact our law firm, our goal is for you to quickly connect with a civil rights lawyer about your potential case. These consultations are free and if we are able to help you, we do not charge up-front costs or fees. We are contingency fee civil rights lawyers, which means that if you don’t win, we earn nothing. While we cannot help every potential client who contacts our law firm, we try our best to make sure that you have a resource or advice to help you move forward if we are unable to help.

If we are able to help and you ultimately decide to work with us, we take that responsibility seriously. From the beginning of your case until its conclusion, we will communicate with you about each step, we will listen to you, we will advise you, and we will help make sure that all of us including you are prepared. We pride ourselves on being good teammates with each other and with our clients. If you want to talk to us at any step of the process, we are here for you.
