Appellate Litigation. Enforcing the Constitution.

Gura PLLC provides decisive representation before the United States Supreme Court and federal courts of appeals throughout the country. The firm works to preserve or reverse trial or lower appellate court outcomes, and represents amici curiae (friends of the court) who wish to enhance a court’s understanding of a dispute by adding perspectives undeveloped by the parties.

The firm also designs and initiates constitutional litigation in the trial courts, frequently addressing complex, high stakes disputes touching on a variety of subjects.

The firm’s principal, Alan Gura, has argued and won landmark constitutional cases before the United States Supreme Court. Named among the 100 Most Influential Lawyers in America by the National Law Journal in 2013, Gura has also argued cases before ten federal courts of appeals and numerous federal district courts throughout the country. Gura regularly lectures and debates at law schools and continuing legal education seminars about legal issues of current interest. Gura also teaches strategic litigation as an adjunct Professor of Law at Georgetown University, and is proud to have litigated the demise of various unconstitutional statutes and ordinances.
