Civil Rights Cases We Handle
The U.S. Constitution was created to protect all citizens who suffer any violation of civil rights. We take these rights seriously and are prepared to handle various civil rights cases, including:
- Misconduct by law enforcement – If you are arrested under false pretenses, handled with excessive force or mistreated with some other form of malicious prosecution by an officer of the law, you may be able to file a damages claim.
- Domestic abuse – Restraining orders and other types of protection are a crucial step in handling cases involving domestic violence.
- Employment discrimination – Applicants or employed individuals who experience discrimination because of gender, age, race, sexual orientation or religion may have a valid claim.
- Housing discrimination – Housing discrimination occurs in many ways, such as with a property owner who wants to eliminate certain types of tenants based on marital status, race or other characteristic.
- Government discrimination – An individual may experience similar types of employer discrimination working for or applying to a local, state or federal government entity.
- Contract disputes – Business contracts or other written or verbal agreements occur when one or more involved parties no longer agree with the originally-agreed-upon contract terms.
- Property disputes – These disputes arise over real property or real estate, such as those involving either municipal or government property line issues.
Civil rights cases are often complicated, which is why we encourage that you to consult with a qualified Lake Havasu City civil rights attorney from our firm.
What Can I Do If My Civil Rights Are Violated?
Once a situation is determined to be a valid claim for a civil rights violation, there are several avenues of resolution available, including:
- Informal negotiations – An opportunity that is decided by and provided to all parties who elect to avoid a lawsuit by first attempting to discuss and work out issues.
- Mediation – When informal negotiations are unsuccessful, both parties may opt to work with a professional mediator. While a mediator is able to be an objective third party and make suggestions accordingly, he or she does not have any legal authority in the final decisions that are made by any of the parties involved.
- Arbitration – An arbitrator also provides neutral mediation, however, unlike a professional mediator, this individual does have the ability to provide a resolution that can be legally enforced in a court of law.
- Filing a lawsuit – This step involves filing a lawsuit in a court of law as a legal attempt to pursue resolution following a civil rights violation.
