Loevy & Loevy was founded in 1997 by attorney Jon Loevy after he left the international law firm Sidley & Austin. From the beginning, the firm vowed only to take cases that fit with the desire to right wrongs for the victims of injustice. Loevy & Loevy applies this philosophy to cases in a variety of practice areas, including civil rights cases, class action suits, whistleblower claims, personal injury and commercial litigation. Today, the firm’s attorneys are widely recognized as being among the nation’s leading civil rights lawyers due to their accomplishments as trial attorneys—winning more than $250 million in verdicts and settlements for our clients.
