Civil Rights Violations
America’s founding fathers asserted that all men are created equal and endowed with the unalienable rights of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. Although these ideals are the cornerstones upon which our nation was built, ensuring the unalienable rights of all Americans has proven to be a divisive, evolving battle that endures to this day.

Do I Need a Civil Rights Attorney?
A civil rights attorney can help you fight for the justice you deserve if your fundamental rights as an American citizen are violated. Civil rights cases are often complex and difficult to prove, with many cases dragging out for extended periods of time. If you believe any of your civil liberties have been violated, securing an experienced attorney will be critical to building a successful case.
If you’ve been discriminated against based on your race, religion, gender or disability, a civil rights lawyer can protect your rights. Some common cases of civil rights violations include:
- Unreasonable searches and seizures
- Losing a job or being passed over for a promotion due to discrimination
- Abuse by a public official
- Cruel and unusual punishment
- Any discrimination based on a superficial quality or belief
You are often required to file a claim with the government before filing your lawsuit. If you believe you have been discriminated against, it’s imperative to meet with a civil rights lawyer to determine your next steps.
What Does a Civil Rights Attorney Do?
Civil rights attorneys represent groups and individuals from discrimination and other civil rights violations. Your civil rights include:
- Freedom of speech
- Freedom of religion,
- Freedom of assembly
- The right to petition the government
- The right to procedural due process
- Freedom from discrimination based on sex, race and national origin
What Should I Expect When Working with a Civil Rights Attorney?
When embarking on a civil rights case, find a lawyer you can trust and brace for a potentially long process. You’ll generally sue for damages rather than seeking to change laws or regulations.
As Americans, our civil liberties are at the core of our individual pursuits and daily experiences. It is our duty to protect those liberties for ourselves, our families and the generations of Americans who will follow us.
