Civil Rights Attorney in Pittsburg, PA

Protecting Your Civil Rights

The United States Constitution protects us from abuses by our government.  For example, the Constitution protects our right to speak our minds and practice our religion freely.  It also protects our right to privacy in our homes and personal affairs and our right to be treated fairly by law enforcement officers, prosecutors and other government officials.
 
Unfortunately, enforcing the Constitution is not easy.  Courts and governments have created a complicated web of rules, regulations, immunities, exceptions and high standards which make it difficult to hold public officials accountable when they violate our rights.  We have the experience to navigate these pitfalls and get you the best possible results.

Prison Abuse

The degree of civilization in a society can be judged by entering its prisons.
- Fyodor Dostoevsky

Regardless of why a person is in jail, all prisoners are entitled to reasonable medical care, humane conditions of confinement and prompt release at the end of their sentence.  Unfortunately, abuse behind prisons walls is all too common. It is also difficult to uncover and difficult to prove.  We know the law and can help you evaluate your case. Contact us for a free consultation.
