Pacific Legal Foundation

About Pacific Legal Foundation

Who is Pacific Legal Foundation? We are a group of individuals united in our belief that personal liberty is essential to a thriving and prosperous society. We use bold and innovative strategies to challenge burdensome laws in courts and legislatures across the country, and in the hearts and minds of the American public.

Governments at all levels undermine liberty by passing laws that interfere with peoples’ right to freely associate and express themselves, acquire and use property, or earn an honest living. It is daunting for the average person to defend those rights against the government, with its power and access to substantial resources. That’s where we step in. Thanks to our donors’ support, we represent all our clients for free.

We are ambitious—we are willing to take on even the most challenging cases to defend liberty and justice for all. And we’re great at what we do. We’ve secured 11 victories in our 13 cases heard by the Supreme Court.

We believe that a freer world is a better world.

Pacific Legal Foundation litigates nationwide to secure all Americans’ inalienable rights to live responsibly and productively in their pursuit of happiness. PLF combines strategic and principled litigation, communications, and research to achieve landmark court victories enforcing the Constitution’s guarantee of individual liberty.
