Civil rights laws extend broadly to protect individuals and businesses from institutional and governmental abuse. In short, a government body is not allowed to act in an arbitrary or capricious way that infringes upon the rights of citizens. Due process is required. Whether the offending action is retaliatory, discriminatory, arbitrary or simply due to negligence, as a protected individual or organization you can hold people in positions of power accountable.
From federal agents to local municipalities, government authorities are kept in check by constitutional mandates and civil rights laws. These laws are designed to protect the rights of citizens and businesses.
Our lawyers represent people and businesses in the broad areas of civil rights claims, such as those involving:
- Excessive force or false arrest
- Abuse of power
- Unreasonable search and seizure
- Denial of due process
