From Luke Lirot
I have been privileged to be an attorney for almost 30 years. I have represented 1000's of clients from all walks of life, in all types of cases. My focus is on Constitutional and First Amendment Law, and my firm also does extensive work in both state and federal courts, for both civil and criminal matters. I also specialize in liquor license law, local government issues, code enforcement and nuisance abatement matters, and white collar defense. Cases that I have handled have generated over 200 published opinions. I have also had the pleasure to practice in state and/or federal courts (under pro hac vice admission) in over 21 states, including New York, Texas, Virginia, Pennsylvania, Ohio, and many others. Those who identify me as only practicing in the arena of "adult entertainment" cases, because of the vast media attention those cases receive, should not be misled. I can, and do, handle and successfully represent significantly more types of clients. I would enjoy the privilege of helping you, if you need a lawyer. Thank you!
