Civil Rights

You have the right to speak freely. You have the right to practice your own religion, to not practice any religion, and not to be forced to practice anyone else’s religion. You have the right to be free from discrimination on the basis of race, age, gender, ethnicity, religion, disability. You have the right to be free from unreasonable searches and seizures. You have the right to be free from unlawful incarceration. You have the right to be free from the excessive use of force by police officers. You have the right to due process of law before the government can deprive you of life, liberty or property. You have the right to the equal protection of the law. These are just some of your civil rights that are protected by the Constitution and laws of the United States. Sometimes, those rights are violated. There is often a remedy, but remedies do not come easily.

CREIGHTON & ROSE, PC, is committed to pursuing redress for the violation of the civil rights of our clients. Our experience, expertise and commitment has made us a formidable advocate for people who have suffered at the hands of the government, its agents or its officers. And it takes a formidable advocate: the government doesn’t like to have its authority and power challenged or second-guessed, and it doesn’t like to admit that it’s wrong. Even in the face of that, we continue to successfully engage the government on behalf of our clients.

Your civil rights must not be taken for granted. Sometimes, they need to be fought for. That’s what we do.
