Civil Rights & Litigation: Protecting Your Rights

At Wagar Hickman, we are dedicated to safeguarding and advocating for the civil rights of individuals. Our experienced attorneys specialize in civil rights litigation by providing strong legal representation to those whose rights have been violated. We understand the importance of civil rights in upholding justice and equality, and we are committed to fighting for justice on behalf of our clients.

What Are Civil Rights?

Civil rights encompass the fundamental rights and freedoms that are granted to individuals by the law. These rights are designed to protect individuals from unfair treatment and discrimination based on characteristics such as race, gender, religion, national origin, disability, and more. Civil rights are not only crucial to ensuring equal treatment, but they are also essential for fostering a just and inclusive society.

Civil Rights Litigation: Seeking Justice

Unfortunately, civil rights violations occur far too often, and victims may find themselves facing various forms of discrimination or mistreatment. Civil rights litigation provides an avenue for individuals to seek justice and hold accountable those who have violated their rights. This legal process allows individuals to pursue remedies for the harm they have suffered and aims to ensure that such violations are not repeated.

Our Expertise in Civil Rights Litigation

At Wagar Hickman, we have extensive experience in handling a wide range of civil rights cases. Our attorneys are well-versed in federal and state laws that protect civil rights, including but not limited to:

  2. Police Misconduct: We hold law enforcement officers accountable for misconduct, excessive force, false arrests, unlawful searches, and other violations of civil rights. Our team understands the complexities involved in these cases and is prepared to vigorously advocate for our client’s rights.
  3. Freedom of Speech and Expression: We are strong advocates for protecting individuals’ rights to free speech and expression. Whether it involves government censorship, retaliation, or restrictions on peaceful assembly, we are committed to safeguarding these fundamental rights.
  4. Religious Freedom: Our attorneys understand the importance of protecting the right to practice one’s religion freely. We provide legal representation to individuals who face religious discrimination, including cases involving workplace accommodations, land use issues, and religious expression.
