The Atlantic coast is a large region of the United States consisting of all of the states that border the Atlantic Ocean, from Maine to Florida. This includes New Hampshire, Vermont, Pennsylvania, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, Connecticut, New York, New Jersey, Delaware, the District of Columbia, Maryland, Virginia, West Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina, and Georgia. It can be further subdivided into the Northeastern, Mid-Atlantic, and Southeastern United States. Geographically and demographically, the Atlantic Coast may be one of the most diverse regions in the entire country.
There are many legal issues that, while not unique to the Atlantic region, are strongly associated with it. For example, the first states to legalize same-sex marriage were all located in the region (in New England, specifically).
The Atlantic region has been at the forefront of this controversial social issue, which, besides the standard arguments about public policy and morality that surround it, is rife with legal issues. Same-sex marriage implicates everything from family law to constitutional law.
If you have a legal issue concerning same-sex marriage or LGBT rights, or any other legal issue, you can bet that there is a lawyer in the Atlantic region who is ready and willing to help you, and LegalMatch can help you find the right Atlantic lawyer to meet your needs, no matter what type of case you have.
