Civil Rights Lawyer in DC

Civil Rights Lawyer in DC

Your civil rights are granted by the United States Constitution, and if you suspect your rights have been violated, you should reach out to a civil rights lawyer in Washington D.C. immediately. You may be wondering what qualifies as a civil rights violation, and you might be wondering what counts as civil rights in the first place. Read on to learn more about what rights are protected by the Constitution, and how a civil rights lawyer can help.

What are civil rights?

At the most simple, civil rights are rights provided by the government. This includes the right to free speech, the right to a fair trial, and the right to vote, among many others. Notable civil rights that you may see in the news include the right to vote, freedom from unwarranted or unreasonable search and seizure, and the right to remain silent.

There are many civil rights, and all are under fire at some point in time. Fortunately, a DC civil rights lawyer can provide more information on your civil rights, and how they may have been violated. Importantly, the right lawyer can also walk you through the next steps if your civil rights have been infringed upon in any way.

What counts as a civil rights violation?

If your civil rights were infringed on account of your ethnicity, religion, or any other protected category, you may have a civil rights case on your hand. The list of protected categories includes race/ethnicity, sexual orientation, religious practice, gender, and many more. It is illegal to discriminate against any of these protected categories, and if you’ve been discriminated against on account of any of these protected categories, you should reach out to a civil rights attorney so you can get the justice you deserve.

Examples of civil rights violations:

Unfortunately, there are many cases of civil rights violations. While some are more high profile, it’s important to know that there are more civil rights violations than what you typically see on the news. One of the most common examples of a civil rights violation is police discrimination. Whether you’re black, white, or anything in between, you should never be discriminated against by the police.

Police misconduct is a major source of civil rights cases, but there are other culprits as well. For example, the parents of a special needs child who has been abused or neglected by teachers and other students may be able to file a civil rights suit against their child’s school. A government employee who was fired or punished for voicing their opinion in the workplace can also file a civil rights suit.

Contact Cohen & Cohen today

Any violation of your civil rights deserves investigation and legal action. If you suspect your rights have been abused or infringed upon by another party, you shouldn’t hesitate to look into legal action. The United States Constitution has granted you specific inalienable rights as a free citizen, and you should never accept any violation of these rights.

Reach out to Cohen & Cohen today to see how a civil rights lawyer in D.C. can help you get the justice and compensation you deserve.

To say that I am happy with the outcome of my case is the understatement of the century! Jill Stanley is a BEAST at what she does. That is the only way to explain it. She takes no prisoners. She and her team are very skilled and knowledgeable. I am so happy I trusted them to do their job and rolled with Jill's suggestions. I would choose Jill again 100 times. She settled my case for more than I imagined I would receive. I was literally in tears. It is the best feeling to know my pain isn't for naught. Wayne Cohen and Kristopher Yorke were nothing short of amazing. They have the patience of saints. I'm 100% certain that I got on their last nerves with my frustration and tears at every other call I had with them. Being in pain and wanting to just be able to heal was all I could focus on, but they helped me realize that I also had to focus on the bigger picture (the case) so I could put this piece behind me. As a high-strung individual with anxiety, it was hard for me to not worry and let them do their jobs, but they reassured me all of the time that they had this. To be injured before the start of the pandemic and have to receive regular, weekly treatment while others are able to stay home is anxiety inducing. I was in pain, I was anxious, and I was just hoping it all worked out. It more than worked out. I hope Jill, Siri, and Kris know how much their hard work and "hanging in there" meant to me. I am eternally grateful. I can't recommend you all enough. If you choose this law firm, you won't be sorry!

I had a great experience with the team at Cohen & Cohen. From my intake attorney, Adam, to the paralegal, Bryan, who worked with me regularly for months to document and prepare my case, to Jill, the attorney who secured my settlement, I feel fortunate to have had their representation and expertise on my side.
