Advocating for Victims of Civil Rights Abuses
New York Civil Rights Attorneys
Civil rights are vital to all Americans, whether citizens or not, allowing us to live and work without fear of abuse or intimidation by others. Those who have experienced violations of their civil rights can take legal action against those responsible, but they will need the help of experienced civil rights lawyers, like the civil rights lawyers from Romano & Kuan, to ensure the proper handling of their cases.
The Right to Take Action
Civil rights violations can occur in a variety of ways, with the perpetrators ranging from the police, prosecutors, government agencies, and quasi-government organizations. Such violations include:
- False arrests
- Police and prison guard brutality
- Excessive force
- Racial profiling / discrimination
- Gender/ sexual identity discrimination
- Malicious prosecutions
- Wrongful convictions
- Unlawful imprisonment
- Due Process/ Fair Trial violations
- Sex abuse
Those who have experienced such violations can seek money damages and other remedies, but strict time limitations and procedures could bar recovery if not handled properly. Our lawyers understand the intricacies of the legal system, whether it is a case stemming from Manhattan, Bronx, Brooklyn, Queens, Nassau, Suffolk, Yonkers, or upstate NY. We will strive to obtain the best possible outcome in the cases we handle, whether this means settling outside of court or going to trial.
