The First Amendment makes clear that “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances.” In recent decades; however, the Supreme Court has gradually extended (or incorporated) these fundamental protections against state and local governments.

With decades of experience, the attorneys of Juris Day have defended  numerous individuals against government punishment for merely exercising their fundamental right to religious liberty and other First Amendment rights in both federal and Virginia state courts.
