The First Amendment Protections - Free Speech, Free Press, & More

If someone violates your First Amendment rights, contact Stroebel & Johnson, PLLC in Charleston, WV, at (304) 553-0660, or in Lewisburg, WV, at (304) 520-0832.

Individual/Group Rights Ensured by the First Amendment
The First Amendment of the U.S. Constitution guarantees certain rights to every individual and group in the United State of America. Some of these rights include the freedom of speech, the freedom of religion, and more. The types of violation or infringement of these rights include:
- Limiting or denying a citizen or group their right to freely express a viewpoint, no matter how popular or unpopular
- Limiting or preventing groups and individual people from freely associating with each other
- Denying or restricting the free exercise of faith from individuals or religious groups
If you or your organization experienced the denial of the rights guaranteed by the First Amendment, call the law firm of attorneys Stroebel and Johnson in West Virginia. We will always work hard to ensure your freedom.
Freedom of the Press is Ensured by the First Amendment
The First Amendment includes the freedom of the press, which allows ‘watchdog’ agencies to provide the public with information about the executive, judicial, and legislative branches of government, and more. The First Amendment prohibits the government from interfering with the distribution or declaration of such information and opinions via the free press. However, when agencies or officials infringe on constitutional freedoms, call on the West Virginia lawyers at Stroebel & Johnson, PLLC in Charleston and Lewisburg.
Retaliation for Exercising First Amendment
