Civil Rights

A civil rights attorney helps protect the personal rights granted to you by the government. When someone violates those rights, a civil rights attorney can help you make them stop these violations, or repay you for any damage they have done to you. Your civil rights are spelled out in federal and state constitutions and in discrimination laws. In fact, civil rights attorneys are sometimes called discrimination attorneys because they frequently handle cases involving a person being treated differently based on gender, age, ethnicity, or sexual orientation.
