Civil rights law deals with the protections and liberties enjoyed by the American people. These rights are designed to ensure that people are treated equally and without respect to their ethnicity, gender, or other such attributes.
If you were the victim of police brutality, discrimination, or have had other constitutionally protected rights violated, a civil rights lawyer may be able to help. Other examples of situations where there may be civil rights issues include, gay rights, hate crimes, and other violations against human rights.
If you believe that a protected right was violated, you have a number of options, including filing a private lawsuit against those responsible for any harm suffered as a result.
