Gloria Allred and her law firm, Allred, Maroko & Goldberg, have been the leading women’s rights and victims’ rights law firm in the nation for more than 40 years. Allred was the first attorney in California to announce that she would challenge California’s ban on same-gender marriage. After litigating the case all the way to the California Supreme Court and winning the right to marry, her clients became the first same-gender couple to be permitted to be married in Los Angeles County. In January 2017, Allred filed a defamation suit against President Donald Trump on behalf of Summer Zervos. Trump called his accusers (including Zervos) liars after they accused him of sexually inappropriate conduct. Allred is the author of Fight Back and Win (HarperCollins 2006).
