Winning in court with relentlessness and caring on the side of the angels- Civil liberties protector Louis Sirkin

Jon Katz

Criminal defense and First Amendment defense lawyer Louis Sirkin has since the 1960's been at the forefront of obscenity defense, criminal defense and First Amendment defense, often crisscrossing the nation in his battles for our civil liberties. When Jon Katz first met Louie in 1999, he was struck by Louie's powerfully persuasive approach that is both without ego and selfless, and his generosity in sharing his knowledge and experience with his fellow members of the First Amendment Lawyers Association, which Louie previously led as its president.  

Louis Sirkin's clients have included Larry Flynt and many other members of the adult entertainment world, Jerry Springer when on the Cincinnati city council and probed in a massage parlor matter, a museum director prosecuted for obscenity for displaying Robert Mapplethorpe's art in 1989 (with a win for the side of right), animal rights activists, and Black Lives Matter activists.

Louie at once is uncompromisingly relentless and a team player with co-counsel, and a true gentleman in pushing for the best possible results for his clients. Read more about Louie at https://www.santenhughes.com/lawyers/h-louis-sirkin
