Providing Legal Services

We love helping people and strengthening our community.

What We Do

Levy Armstrong is not just a typical law firm. We pride ourselves on being in tune with the needs of our individual clients, as well as identifying systemic issues and patterns that are producing inequity and discrimination. Our lawyers have fought to change laws and policies that have disparately impacted people of color and those who are most vulnerable.

Our Legal Process

When we meet with clients and prospective clients, we work to pinpoint the precise legal issues they are facing and to identify both legal and nonlegal solutions. We are dedicated advocates, problem solvers, and attentive to the needs of our clients.
