Civil Rights Advocacy

Michel & Associates’s civil rights lawyers advocate on behalf of a variety of civil rights, including the Second Amendment right to keep and bear arms, the right to self-defense, student rights, and the rights of medical marijuana patients and their caregivers.

The Second Amendment and the Right to Self-Defense
Michel & Associates has one of the most recognized and respected Second Amendment practices in the nation. We are proud to be on the front lines of the self-defense civil rights battle. Litigation and test cases moving through the courts today will establish the parameters of the right to keep and bear arms for future generations.

Student Rights and Special Education
Having legal representation at student disciplinary proceedings has become increasingly important. Students facing disciplinary proceedings before a school board often simultaneously face criminal charges in juvenile court stemming from the same conduct. Because the lawyers of Michel & Associates have experience in both criminal and education law, we can represent students before both venues.

Medical Marijuana
Michel & Associates’s lawyers use their specialized experience in a variety of legal fields to assist patients, caregivers, doctors, cooperatives, collectives, dispensaries, and others associated with the cultivation, distribution, and use of medical marijuana. Michel & Associates’ attorneys typically assist our clients in business formation, licensing, permitting, tax collection, leasing of facilities, establishment and implementation of best management practices, interaction with and lobbying of state and local law enforcement and government representatives, seeking the return of seized property including marijuana, bringing civil actions to protect the rights of our clients, and defending against criminal prosecutions.
