As an American, your civil liberties should never be violated. Part of what makes our country so distinguished is our freedom to be who we want to be and to speak our minds freely regardless of what we look like or what ideas we hold. Discrimination on the basis of race, color, religion, and sexual orientation is not only wrong, but a violation of federal law. As an American, your civil rights include: freedom of speech, religion and assembly, the right to due process, the right to petition against the government, and freedom from discrimination on the basis of race, sex, or national origin.
Civil Law can be very complex, which is why you need to get an experienced attorney in your corner as soon as possible if you feel your civil rights have been violated. In many cases, a claim must be submitted to the government in order to file a lawsuit, which means you want someone with extensive knowledge to help guide you in protecting your legal rights.
Common civil rights cases include:
- Workplace discrimination
- Abuse by a public official
- Discrimination based on belief of superficial qualities
- Unreasonable search or seizure
