Civil Rights are your guarantees by the Federal, State and Local government to certain human rights. This includes the right to vote, the right to privacy, freedom of speech and equal protection. When your Civil Rights are violated, and you suffer a physical or psychological injury as a result, you can sue for compensation. The first step is to speak to an experienced civil rights lawyer to discuss your potential case.
Employment discrimination, wrongful termination, police brutality, sexual harassment and other civil rights violations happen far too often. Our goal is to give a voice to the voiceless, to speak for those who wouldn’t be heard otherwise.
The most important aspect of your claim is the careful screening of the facts to establish that it meets the criteria for filing a formal complaint. If a civil rights action is not warranted, there may still be grounds for a lawsuit related to sexual harassment, age discrimination or wrongful termination.
