Former DOJ, ACLU Attorney Launches Boutique Civil Rights Law Firm

The Law Office of Bryan L. Sells, LLC to focus on voting rights, election law, and redistricting.

Atlanta, GA – March 7, 2016 Bryan L. Sells is pleased to announce the launch of The Law Office of Bryan L. Sells, LLC.  Drawing on Sells’ experience in the government and nonprofit sectors, the boutique firm will specialize in voting rights, election law, and redistricting matters.

Based in Atlanta, Georgia, the new firm will represent individual voters, civil rights organizations, political parties, and candidates across the country in complex voting rights litigation.  The firm will also provide legal advice and counseling to select local governments on redistricting issues and compliance with federal election laws.

The firm opens its doors on the fifty-first anniversary of Bloody Sunday, when Alabama State Troopers attacked voting-rights marchers on the Edmund Pettus Bridge in Selma, Alabama.  “Although our country has made great progress on voting rights since Bloody Sunday, I believe there remains much work to be done,” Sells said.  “Minority voters continue to be underrepresented in the halls of power, and we’ve seen new efforts at vote suppression in recent years.”

Bryan Sells is a nationally recognized authority on voting rights law.  Before opening his own firm, Sells served as a Special Litigation Counsel in the Voting Section of the Civil Rights Division of the United States Department of Justice in Washington, D.C., from 2010 to 2015.  He represented the United States in several notable cases involving statewide redistricting and voter identification laws.

Sells was previously a Senior Staff Attorney in the Voting Rights Project of the American Civil Liberties Union in Atlanta, Georgia, where he represented a diverse array of clients in voting rights and ballot access matters for more than 10 years.

“I’m excited about returning home to Georgia to continue this important work,” Sells said.  “The new firm allows me to be nimble and more attentive to my clients’ needs, while leveraging the experience I gained at DOJ and the ACLU.”
