Civil Rights Violation Attorneys in Pittsburgh

Protect Your Rights with Dedicated Representation

Here in the United States, we have certain inalienable rights written into the very fabric of our legal system: Most notably the right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness, as well as the rights to free speech and freedom from discrimination. However, these civil rights and others can often be violated by the very institutions built to protect them, and in those cases, you may feel you have no recourse.

Whether you’ve been unfairly targeted by a police officer or faced discrimination at school or work, you are entitled to fair and equal treatment. Our Pittsburgh civil rights violations lawyers are committed to preserving your Constitutional rights, and to fighting back against violations of the law. With nearly 40 years of experience defending our clients against various forms of injustice, we are willing and able to stand up on your behalf and prevent further abuses from taking place.

What Constitutes a Civil Rights Violation?

Under the law, there is no legal or moral excuse for discrimination, be it based on your age, nationality, race, religion, sex, gender identification, disability, or sexual orientation. You also have the right to free speech, the right to speak with an attorney when accused of a crime, and the right to assemble peacefully in public, as well as dozens of other essential human rights recognized in the U.S. Constitution.

Some of the most common civil rights violations you may encounter include:

  • Violent hate crimes
  • Unreasonable search and seizure
  • Losing your job due to discrimination
  • Racial profiling by law enforcement
  • Police abuse during a peaceful protest
  • Sexual harassment and discrimination
  • Police misconduct while under arrest
  • Denial of access to public spaces or resources

Providing Powerful Advocacy for Your Rights

Civil rights cases are nothing if not complicated, as they usually involve filing claims with the government, as well as against the specific parties who have wronged you. The legal strategy for these cases also varies greatly depending on the type of violation you’ve suffered, and on who committed the violation.

Our Pittsburgh civil rights lawyers are well-versed in this area of the law, however, and we can provide you with a solid and passionate defense of your rights. By leaning on our years of experience and our track record of success, you can rest assured that your voice will be heard, and your basic liberties will be acknowledged. No matter whether the case settles or goes before a court of your peers, we will do everything in our power to fight for you.
