To those troubled by the rapid decline of religious freedom in America, First Liberty is the legal organization that offers the greatest hope for victory.

 As the largest legal firm in the nation dedicated exclusively to defending religious freedom for all in America, First Liberty Institute holds an unparalleled victory rate. We offer free legal assistance to those who are facing attacks on their religious liberty rights.

First Liberty has participated in numerous cases before the United States Supreme Court, federal courts of appeals, federal district courts and various state courts, and we win more than 90 percent of those cases.

Our Unique Model

First Liberty’s innovative strategy for victory consists of three components that set us apart from other legal firms and non-profit organizations:

  1. Our exclusive dedication to defending religious liberty
  2. Our strategic emphasis on four areas where religious liberty is threatened
  3. Our unique volunteer attorney model

1. Exclusive Dedication to Religious Liberty

First Liberty Institute recognizes that we will make the biggest difference in the battle for religious freedom if we make protecting religious freedom for all in America our sole focus.

2. Our Strategic Four-Part Emphasis

First Liberty works on a national level, working to protect religious freedom for all in America in four key areas:

  • Religious liberty for churches and other religious organizations
  • Religious liberty inside the military
  • Religious liberty in schools
  • Religious liberty throughout the public arena

This four-pronged emphasis allows our protection of religious liberty to span every area where one might face hostility to religion.

3. Our Unique Volunteer Attorney Model

First Liberty employs a unique legal strategy. Our attorneys partner with volunteer lawyers from some of the most established law firms in the nation on virtually every case. Often making over $1,000 per hour, these elite attorneys volunteer their time to defend our clients pro bono. This innovative strategy allows our clients to be represented by the nation’s top lawyers at no cost.

Our volunteer attorneys’ expertise, combined with the experience and dedication of our 12 staff attorneys, has led First Liberty to achieve an unparalleled victory rate.
