First Amendment & Media Law

Jaffe’s First Amendment and Media Law practice provides counsel to media clients, including print media (newspapers, magazines and alternative media publishers), broadcast media (radio, television and film) and electronic media (Internet service providers, web publishers and Internet businesses). In addition, we represent authors, journalists, entertainment personalities, government agencies and private corporations in connection with the legal and regulatory issues they encounter during the newsgathering and reporting process.

Our attorneys assist media clients with protecting and enforcing their federal and state constitutional rights and statutory privileges. We offer preventive counsel to clients in order to help avoid potential problems. Our attorneys provide pre-publication review and advice and can assist with newsgathering questions related to compliance with privacy, wiretapping and trespass laws. Additionally, we assist with emerging issues related to Internet publications, such as reporter blogs and public posting of comments on media-sponsored websites.
