Everytown’s Litigation and Enforcement team leverages the expertise of a group of seasoned litigators, including several former federal and state prosecutors, with decades of collective experience as courtroom and appellate advocates. 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 punitive firearms preemption laws. We also have significant experience representing and working with survivors of gun violence in lawsuits against the gun industry and with local and state governments facing Second Amendment challenges to gun safety laws.


The Litigation and Enforcement team is available to provide free legal representation and advice to both individual and government clients across the country. We also regularly partner with experienced litigators in private practice at some of the top law firms in the nation. If you have a potential litigation or enforcement matter, contact us through the form below. 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.
