Overview of Civil Rights Cases

Civil rights cases are complex, and they can often involve many parties. If you feel that your civil rights have been violated, our legal team can help you understand your options for seeking legal recourse.

 Common civil rights cases we handle include:

  • Unlawful Discrimination: This includes instances where individuals are treated unfairly based on their race, color, religion, sex, age, disability, or national origin in areas such as employment, housing, or public services.
  • Police Misconduct: Violations occur when law enforcement officers engage in excessive force, false arrests, racial profiling, or other abuses of power.
  • Unfair Housing Practices: This can involve discriminatory practices in selling, renting, or providing loans for housing based on the protected attributes of an individual.
  • Infringement of Free Speech: This includes cases where the government or other entities unlawfully restrict an individual's right to express their ideas and opinions.
  • Denial of Due Process: This occurs when the government denies an individual a fair trial or other constitutional rights.

What to Do After a Civil Rights Violation 

After a civil rights violation, you may experience a range of emotions. You may be confused and unsure of what to do next.

After a civil rights violation, you may have the following options:

  • File a civil lawsuit against the party that violated your civil rights
