Civil Rights Litigation
The defense of constitutional and civil rights claims is a complicated area of law that demands experienced and competent legal representation. Constitutional claims often involve circumstances affecting freedom of religion, freedom of speech, freedom of the press, freedom of assembly, freedom from unreasonable searches and seizures, freedom from cruel and unusual punishment, right to due process of law, and right to equal protection of the laws. Civil rights claims often involve some type of discriminatory treatment based on age, sex, race, ethnicity, or disability.
