While most legal fees relating to personal matters are non-deductible (or no longer deductible), IRC Section 62(a) provides for a deduction for attorneys fees in civil rights & whistle blower cases as a write-in deduction on Line 36 of Form 1040, before AGI.

Be sure to bring to your tax preparer’s attention any such legal fees which you have paid during the tax year in order to properly report them and take the deduction to which you are entitled.
