Complex Civil Litigation: Constitutional Law and Class Actions

Complex civil litigation can involve thousands of documents, difficult facts, and multiple jurisdictions and court appearances. There may be numerous plaintiffs, defendants, witnesses, and expert witnesses. Due to the amount of time, resources and effort that these complex cases require, many attorneys refuse to take them on. The lawyers at Hymel Davis & Petersen - Attorneys and Counselors at Law are experienced trial attorneys, able to meet the challenges of even the most complex civil litigation cases.

Founded by former veteran federal prosecutors, our law firm is a litigation-based firm, ready to take any case to federal or state court. While we are based in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, our complex litigation attorneys represent clients throughout the United States.

Effective Complex Civil Litigation Attorneys

Our law firm is AV-rated* under the Martindale-Hubbell peer review rating system, and our lawyers have over 100 years of combined experience. Unlike at larger law firms, our partners will be involved in your case, whether it involves a complex business dispute, constitutional law claim, or a problem affecting multiple people.

Constitutional Law and Civil Rights Claims

Laws, regulations, and other rules must comply with the U.S. and State constitutions. When your constitutional and civil rights are not respected, you have the right to bring a lawsuit. Our civil rights lawyers are committed to protecting your rights and pursuing justice in a wide range of complex civil rights and constitutional law cases, including cases involving:

  • Freedom of speech (First Amendment)
  • Freedom of association (First Amendment)
  • Search and seizure (Fourth Amendment)
  • Due process (Fifth and Fourteenth Amendments)
  • Discrimination, including religious discrimination, racial discrimination, sex discrimination, disability, and more (Equal Protection Clause, 14th Amendment, federal laws and state laws)
  • Government takings (Fifth Amendment)

Class Action Lawsuits

A class action lawsuit lets plaintiffs with the same legal issues pool their resources to fight large companies and other defendants who have extensive resources. Whether your case involves consumer fraud, a business law issue, or another complex issue, we can help.

Our law firm's knowledge of class action lawsuits extends beyond the many suits we have brought on behalf of clients around the country. Partner L.J. Hymel was recognized and appointed by federal and state judges to serve as special master in class action litigation. In that role, he was responsible for allocating millions of dollars to class claimants.
