At Barton Mendez Soto, we know that transparency in political activity is crucial and that government agencies must make their records available to the public whenever possible, except information that violates privacy and national security laws. Our reputable, award-wining legal team is familiar with federal and state laws that govern the disclosure of information and records by administrative agencies and political parties, which is why we provide high-quality legal representation to clients who need help assessing public affairs conduct and managing resources to ensure the recognition of human rights.
Our good governance litigation team helps political clients pursue progressive causes by devising comprehensive strategies that follow the rule of law, eliminate corruption, and take into account the views and voices of minorities and those most vulnerable in society. Our firm proudly advises clients who need help showcasing the different ways their institution or government agency is responsive to the present and future needs of society.
