As citizens and legal residents of the United States, we all have certain civil rights guaranteed by the Constitution. These protections were established in order to safeguard individuals from police and government misconduct. Unfortunately, civil rights violations happen every day in our country. This leaves victims and their families to deal with a range of repercussions that can negatively impact their futures. If this has happened to you, it can be easy to let the sense of injustice defeat you. However, it is important to understand that there may be legal remedies available and qualified attorneys who can help you obtain them.
