Chandra Law Firm LLC lawyers have fought effectively for their clients' constitutional rights:
Founding and managing partner Subodh Chandra's constitutional-litigation experience arises from his experience as a federal prosecutor, where he endeavored to protect the constitutional rights even of those he was prosecuting. Chandra also served as Director of Law for the City of Cleveland, Ohio, a $1 billion corporation. There, he explored numerous constitutional issues and successfully defended the mayor against First Amendment-retaliation allegations by media. Chandra also worked in Los Angeles as outside counsel to the cities of Los Angeles and Beverly Hills, defending high-profile allegations of police misconduct and excessive force.
Other lawyers in the firm bring together significant constitutional law experience. Donald Screen, Sandhya Gupta, and Patrick Kabat are both former federal law clerks, who assisted federal judges in deciding important constitutional questions. Ashlie Case Sletvold has won significant settlements in First Amendment-retaliation and police-misconduct matters, including a $250,000 settlement for a 16-year-old Latino boy with Down Syndrome who was brutalized by Cleveland police who were shouting racial epithets at the child's family.

(We do not handle cases arising from domestic-relations, child-custody, or child-support proceedings. Also, please note that judges and prosecutors have absolute immunity from civil liability for work performed in the scope of their legal duties. Thus, we rarely file civil lawsuits against judges and prosecutors over such matters.)
