There are many attorneys in their professional careers that have decided to specialize their career path in defending civil rights. These are often called civil right attorneys.
The path of those attorneys (or lawyers) can be hard, as there is much to learn and a lot to experience in one of the most generic specializations in the law school.
First, let’s understand what are the civil rights presented in the United States’ Constitution.
The civil rights are rules that defend the common people, and they are an obligation of the democracy present in your country’s politics. Civil Rights define boundaries where, if one breaks them, they will be violating the code of civil rights and will be charged as such.
Civil Rights are different from civil liberties, which is one of the most common complications that is made when discussing the subject. Civil Rights is based on a set of rules that ensure that citizens have equal rights independent of race or gender, as civil liberties englobe the right of free speech, for example.
As a comprehensive set of laws, this collection of rules is home to some of the most common cases of distortion of the law when it comes to presentation in court, as they are expansive and generic. Civil rights can englobe public settings as well as employment and professional rights.

Civil Rights are very generic in nature and they have many branching possibilities in the day-to-day application. Groups of attorneys that defend civil rights as well as human rights or another branch of this department see themselves fighting against many difficulties to find themselves a good place to start if they are a fresh team that started from scratch.
Because of these characteristics, new groups of attorneys who advocate for either civil rights, human rights, migrants’ rights, elderly rights or something along those lines, usually have a hard time starting their own firms with their partners, as the law department is very competitive and based on self-made names in the industry rather than fresh small teams.
Michael and Jim have founded the Frontera Fund with the goal of finding solutions for this problem in mind. They are the founders of one of the biggest funding companies that help civil rights advocates in the world. The Lacey & Larkin Frontera Fund has already given dozens of attorneys and their partners the choice of starting their own businesses with a little fund to help them grow on their own.
Since the Frontera Fund was created by the duo, who are experts in the civil rights set of rules themselves, the United States, mainly the region of Phoenix where the building is situated, has seen an increase in the amount of firms that began from scratch and found success after a long period of time with the support of the funding.
The Frontera Fund is focused on helping lawyers and attorneys who advocate for civil, human and migrants’ rights, and they have ensured that there are new opportunities for fresh law professionals who want to create their own firms.
