Excolo Law believes that civil rights are at the foundation of a successful society and integral to our justice system. Whether you are at work, at school, or even in a private dwelling, you deserve to be treated in a just and constitutional manner.
One of the most common types of civil rights violations is discrimination. If you have been discriminated against based on your gender, age, race, sexual orientation, or disability, we will fight to get you the compensation you deserve.
Civil Rights Practice Areas
The first amendment protects your freedoms of religion and expression. Today it is all too common for these rights to be violated. Religious intolerance and disrespect for the lifestyles of others commonly lead to instances where first amendment rights are violated.
Without question, police officers, state patrolmen, corrections officers and other public service employees have challenging jobs. However, this does not give them the right to overstep the legal boundaries by bringing false charges against someone or using unnecessary or excessive force.
The Fair Housing Act guarantees an equal chance at obtaining housing regardless of race, sex, ethnicity, religion or disability. If you are being denied housing based on any of these factors, you are a victim of illegal discrimination.
The Voting Rights Act prohibits unfair bureaucratic restrictions designed to prohibit people of a certain race or social class from voting.
Our justice system is far from perfect. As a result, many people are convicted of crimes they did not commit. If you are in this position, not only do you deserve to have your conviction overturned, you deserve compensation for the time and money that the wrongful conviction has cost you.
Being unconstitutionally detained can be a traumatizing experience. Being detained by security in a retail store, being restrained to a hospital bed against your will, and being arrested due to an unlawful warrant are all possible examples of wrongful detention.
Violations of Due Process
Some common violations of due process include unlawful search & seizure, malicious prosecution, and false arrest. If you have been wrongfully convicted because of a due process violation, you are likely entitled to compensation.
There are many laws that guarantee your civil rights. If you feel they have been violated, our expert attorneys will work to bring you justice.
