If you are concerned that your civil rights been violated, or are a victim of police misconduct, then you need a police misconduct attorney. The Dearie Law Group represents victims whose constitutional rights have been violated. We pursue justice for victims of police misconduct and civil rights violations.
What Are Your Rights?
The civil rights granted by the United States Constitution come primarily from the following:
- The Fourth Amendment: Protects you against illegal searches and seizures and police brutality. We have been successful in handling these civil rights cases, as well as unlawful arrest and wrongful conviction cases, which often involve violations of the Fifth and Fourteenth Amendment’s “due process of law” clauses.
- The First Amendment: Guarantees freedom of speech and provides protection against retaliation. This is especially applicable to whistleblower cases—also known as a qui tam lawsuit.
- The Civil Rights Act of 1964: Prohibits federal and state governments and employers from discrimination based on race, color, religion, sex or national origin. This is often referenced in employment law cases.
