LP Is Wearing Its Pride

June 29, 2015

“The Constitution promises liberty to all within its reach, a liberty that includes certain specific rights that allow persons, within a lawful realm, to define and express their identity.” 

— Obergefell v. Hodges (United States Supreme Court, June 26, 2015)

We are proud to practice at a firm that has always prided itself on its authenticity, and has never been afraid to empower clients to express their identities.  More than a decade ago, when it was thought daring to do so, LP started one of the nation’s first gay-rights legal practices.  Now, we salute the countless advocates and jurists who paved the way for an historic decision at the Supreme Court.

As a private institution that places great value on diversity and inclusion, Levenfeld Pearlstein is wearing its pride.  A modified logo will replace our standard LP logo on our home page and in our email signatures this week as a public affirmation of our respect for the fundamental rights and equal protection under the law guaranteed to all by the Fourteenth Amendment.  Specifically, we celebrate recognition of the right of same-sex couples to express their identities through marriage.  It’s a small gesture, but we think one that’s fitting of this landmark event in our nation’s history.

Everything begins with the right people.

See what else we are up to.
