Fair and Reasonable Treatment
The Cornerstone of Civil Rights

We focus on protecting our clients against a variety of civil rights violations, from abuse by police to mistreatment in prison to discrimination in the community. In each instance, we ask the question: Has our client been treated in a fair and reasonable manner by another individual, corporation, municipality, state, or federal government? If not, it’s our goal to bring back to our client legal justice and rights that each lost. Sadly, the loss of individual liberties occurs on a daily basis.

Compensation In most cases we seek two forms of justice: monetary compensation and non-economic relief.

Monetary Compensation Individual settlement awards have ranged from tens of thousands of dollars to multiple millions of dollars. While the money is important, client satisfaction is the ultimate goal.

Non-Economic Relief The non-economic component we seek is designed to bring about a greater change in the community that can help prevent civil rights violations in the future – for example, auditing a jail to stop corruption or new training regimens for police, placing a plaque in a police department reminding police to obey the law, helping families start a not for profit in memory of a loved one. While not always successful in obtaining these goals, we always encourage our clients to consider asking for the non-economic relief.
