Civil Rights/Constitutional Law

The Constitution protects certain fundamental rights of the people, including the right to bear arms, to be free from unreasonable searches and seizures, the right to due process, and the right to be free from cruel and unusual punishment. If you believe that your constitutional rights were violated, it is important that you work with a lawyer who is experienced in this specific area of the law.

While many of these rights may pertain during a criminal investigation, other rights may apply in civil cases, such as the right not to have the government takes your property through the civil forfeiture process. A knowledgeable civil rights lawyer will know what action to take and which legal arguments to rise to protect your civil rights. Civil rights violations may result in a dismissal of criminal charges, a ruling of inadmissibility of evidence or monetary compensation. This legal action provides a necessary check to the government to ensure that it follows the necessary rules and honors the safeguards that were put in place by our forefathers.
