Defending Your Civil Rights

The Constitution of the United States limits governmental powers so as to safeguard the inalienable rights of citizens. When local, state or federal agencies overextend and reach beyond those limits, those affected have privileges by law to protect themselves. The laws associated with Civil Rights protect those rights as written and guaranteed by the Bill of Rights and the 13th and 14th Amendments to the Constitution. A Maceau Law civil rights attorney is professional and knowledgeable in understanding the complications, facts, details and circumstances that arise in a civil rights case.

 Such rights covered by civil rights law include:

  • Age (ADEA)
  • Disability (ADA)
  • Gender (Title VII, EPA Lily Ledbetter Act, FLSA)
  • Genetic Information (The Genetic Information Nondiscrimination Act of 2008)
  • National Origin (Title VII)
  • Pregnancy (Title VII, FMLA)
  • Race or Ethnicity (Title VII)
  • Religion (Title VII)
  • Workplace Retaliation (Title VII, ADEA, ADA, EPA)
  • Sexual Harassment (Title VII)
  • First Amendment retaliation
  • Fourth Amendment unlawful search
  • Fourth Amendment false arrest without probable cause or arrest by means of excessive force
  • Eighth Amendment prison conditions and unlawful inmate treatment and conditions
  • Fourteenth Amendment procedural and substantive due process
  • Unlawful incarceration
  • Fourteenth Amendment equal protections
  • Fourteenth Amendment malicious/vindictive prosecution
  • Excessive force
  • Police brutality
  • Prisoner, inmate and parolee civil rights
  • Business and public accommodation discrimination
  • Equal and fair housing discrimination

Civil rights laws give American citizens rights to due process, and guarantee the equal treatment of each individual with respect to the enjoyment and freedom of life, liberty, property and protection.
