After more than 200 years, one might assume that the rights granted by our nation's Bill of Rights would be well known and respected by all. Unfortunately, they are still ignored and violated far too often. If you believe your civil rights have been violated, it is important to have an experienced trial attorney on your side dedicated to righting the wrongs that have occurred.
Some civil rights are expressly granted under federal law, while others — like the right to privacy — are implied. The civil rights granted by the United States Constitution come primarily from the following:
The first amendment — Guarantees freedom of speech and provides protection against retaliation, especially cases of whistleblower law violations for speaking out about matters of public concern.
The fourth amendment — Protects citizens against illegal searches and seizures as well as police brutality. We have been successful in handling these cases as well as pursuing damages in cases of unlawful arrest and wrongful conviction, which often involve violations of the fifth and fourteen amendment's "due process of law" clauses.
The Civil Rights Act of 1964 prohibits federal and state governments and employers from discrimination based on race, color, religion, sex or national origin. This is often referenced in cases of employment discrimination.
