Simply put, Civil Rights law encompasses the areas of law that affect our daily living: our workplace, our communities, and our right to avoid false conviction. Civil Rights lawyers help defend your rights in Court so that you may continue to enjoy every freedom that you are entitled to enjoy.
Too many people think there’s nothing they can do to fight the system. But the only way to change the system is to fight – fight for compensation in your case and fight to change the way the police treat members of our community. Through our diligent and aggressive representation, we have won hundreds of cases for our clients, and have obtained millions of dollars in compensation for victims of police brutality and other misconduct. We can do the same for you.
No one should underestimate the power of the District Attorney’s Office or community politics plays in many criminal cases. Judges want to appear tough on crime, prosecutors are expected to obtain convictions, and police officers want the cases they investigate to end with significant jail time. If you have been charged with a crime, you need a lawyer who is familiar with the inner workings of the criminal justice system, a lawyer with relationships with the prosecutors, and with a familiar face in the courthouse. Our lawyers have over 20 years of combined experience in criminal courts and are known to do whatever is necessary to represent our clients and obtain the best possible result. Give us a call so that we can help you.
