What We Do
We are the largest team of litigators in the country dedicated to advancing gun safety in the courts and through the civil and criminal justice systems.
We have deep knowledge relating to the full range of gun safety issues, from background checks, public carry and gun trafficking to guns on campus and firearms preemption laws. We also have significant experience representing and working with survivors of gun violence in lawsuits against the gun industry and gun dealers and with local and state governments facing Second Amendment and preemption challenges to gun safety laws. Everytown’s work to advance gun safety in the courts reaches all across the country, including California, Colorado, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Montana, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Washington, Wisconsin and Washington D.C.

Everytown Law is available to provide free legal representation and advice to both individual and government clients across the country. Our expert litigators are also available for speaking engagements and conferences.
Please understand that because Everytown is a non-profit organization, we can only select a small number of cases and inquiries for advice or representation. We select cases based on their potential impact for preventing future gun violence.
