Civil Rights Violations A Former Prosecutor & Military Judge Fighting For Your Freedom

Civil Rights Violation Attorney in Dallas, TX

Texas Civil Rights Law

The Civil Rights Act of 1964 (Pub. L. 88–352, 78 Stat. 241, enacted July 2, 1964) gives every U.S. citizen the same rights no matter their race, sexual orientation, sex, religion, or nationality. However, our country still has a very long way to go before this law is fully realized. Civil rights violations occur at the hands of people in power and law enforcement far too often; dominating headlines recently as the gravity and frequency of these issues has been brought to light.

If you were mistreated by the police, treated poorly while in a jail, or forced to do something illegal or unjust by a civil servant, you should consult a dedicated Dallas civil rights lawyer who can help you get justice.

Civil Rights Violations in America

While the racism and sexism of the beginning and middle of the 20th century have been largely banished, millions of civil rights violations are still said to occur. If you or a loved one feels that your civil rights have been disregarded, it is important to take action.

A nation can be judged on how equally it treats its citizens, and we have a very long path ahead of us before every American is treated with the same respect and given the same opportunities. If you have experienced the harsh reality of a civil right violation, contact an experienced Dallas civil rights attorney immediately to begin working on your case and to seek retribution for the damages to which you have been subjected.

Civil Rights Violations by Law Enforcement & Police

Police are not legally allowed to do any racial profiling, and the law must punish equal crimes with equal pay, disregarding race or religion. However, these civil rights are violated each and every day by police officers, corrections officers, and all sorts of officials in government due to our long history of racial discrimination in the United States.

If you believe your rights were violated and you are a victim of racial profiling, there are civil rights violation lawyers willing to help.

A civil rights violation can result in:

  • Physical damages
  • Psychological damages
  • Serious financial damages

If you have been injured by a party based on your race, religion, nationality, sex, or sexual orientation, you may be owed financial compensation from the guilty party. Similarly, if you were denied your rights under the U.S. Constitution, you may be able to receive compensation from the party that denied your rights. According to the Bureau of Justice Statistics, the median damages awarded in civil rights trials from the years 2000 to 2006 was $114,000 to $154,500.
