Seattle Civil Rights Attorney

Protecting Companies against Civil Rights Claims

Our civil rights are fundamental to protecting us from an oppressive government. At NWBizLaw, protecting the liberties we all depend on is one of our highest honors. Some of the most meaningful cases in our firm’s history have involved successfully confronting such abuses of power on behalf of our clients.

Suppose the government has violated your civil rights and caused you or your company substantial damages or injuries. In that case, we will be honored to stand with you. In such cases, our mission is to protect you from further abuse and discrimination, obtain total compensation for your injuries, and send a loud and clear message to the government that the People will not tolerate abusive behavior. That is what it means to us to be Americans.

Types of Civil Rights Violations

The first step in determining whether a civil rights violation has occurred is understanding these rights and what it may look like when an official or institution violates them.

At their core, civil rights are protections created by the government to protect our fundamental human rights to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. State and federal governments outline certain protected classes (e.g., race, sex, religion, etc.) that cannot serve as the basis for discrimination. Individuals, businesses, government agencies, and officials are all capable of violating civil rights, and they can all be held accountable in a court of law.

Illegal government discrimination takes many forms. Here are a few common examples:

  • An official may make false complaints or make up rules that harm you. These are due process violations, hindering your right as a citizen to fair treatment in your trial process.
  • A local government may deny you a business license because of your race or religion. This is an equal protection violation or discrimination for a class that the Constitution protects.
  • A government official searches you or your property without cause. This violates your right against unreasonable search and seizure.
  • The government prosecutes you after you peacefully and legally protest its unjust actions. This is a violation of your freedom of protest.

One of our most widely misunderstood rights is our freedom of speech. For example, suppose a workplace, church, or private institution keeps you from voicing your opinions. In that case, this is not a violation of your civil rights. However, because each type of freedom is highly nuanced and dependent on circumstantial factors, you will need the support of a skilled attorney before deciding to take action. At NWBizLaw, our attorney for violation of civil rights in Seattle will gather every detail of the incident and determine whether an entity violated your civil liberties. If so, this is an intolerable breach of your American freedoms, and we will not stand for it.

We will advocate for your rights and hold all those who break the law accountable. Call (206) 565-0090 to get started with a consultation.
