First Liberty Cases

First Liberty is the largest non-profit legal firm in America solely dedicated to defending and protecting our most important civil liberty: religious freedom.

For over two decades, First Liberty has been at the forefront of some of the nation’s most critical cases, representing people of all faiths across four key areas: the U.S. military, schools, houses of worship and the public arena, including the workplace.

Currently, First Liberty is fighting a record number of cases that are headed toward the U.S. Supreme Court. Every victory that First Liberty achieves at the Supreme Court has a profound impact on the religious freedom of veterans, teachers, students, legislators, private business owners and private citizens – all who are taking a courageous stand to fight for their First Amendment rights.
