Civil Rights


The U.S. Constitution and Georgia Constitution set out many rights for individuals, and these rights should be upheld throughout every step of the criminal justice system. Unfortunately, law enforcement officers, prosecutors, and other authorities can make mistakes or commit wrongful acts that violate the rights of arrestees, criminal defendants, prisoners, and more.

Police Brutality

Police brutality makes headlines several times per year across the United States, and many additional cases go unnoticed. Police brutality happens when officers use force that is excessive given the circumstances, which violates your Fourth Amendment rights.

Police brutality might involve the unnecessary use of pepper spray, tasers, batons, police dogs, or firearms. Many acts of police brutality cause serious injuries, and some even involve unjustified deadly force that results in the death of the victim.

Some other examples of civil rights violations include:

  • Discrimination in the workplace
  • Police brutality
  • Wage violations
  • The use of excessive force
  • Sexual assault
  • Hate crimes
  • Violations of labor rights
  • Cruel and unusual punishment
  • Violations in seizures and searches
  • Human trafficking
  • Whistleblower cases
