We Uphold Your Civil Rights
When someone violates your civil rights, our team at The Fakhouri Firm, LLC, will demand accountability. After a civil rights violation, we can help you to file a complaint with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) or the Justice Department’s civil rights division or file a private lawsuit depending on the circumstances.
Generally, we handle civil rights lawsuits in state and federal courts related to:
- Abuse of women’s rights
- Government agencies
- Hate crimes
- Misconduct of law enforcement
Many of these cases involve discrimination related to gender, race, disability, pregnancy status, military status and religion. We can identify instances of discrimination and thoroughly explore your options.
Incarceration Does Not Mean Total Loss Of Liberties
We represent inmates whose civil rights have been violated. We know how difficult it can be to have a voice when you are behind bars; we are here to serve as your advocate.
Common civil rights violations in jail include:
- Physical and emotional abuse
- Failure to provide adequate medical care
- Failure to provide reasonable accommodations to disabled inmates
- Sexual harassment
There are various acts and procedures that must be accounted for in civil rights cases — especially if you are incarcerated. A seasoned lawyer can be critical to understanding your rights under these acts and explaining the appropriate course of action that must be taken.
