Federal and State Civil Rights Lawyers

Civil rights are human rights. Everyone deserves equal respect when it comes to the most basic human rights. When civil rights violations happen, the responsible parties must be held to account.

Were You The Victim Of
A Civil Rights Violation ?

In the United States everyone has equal rights and privileges that help guarantee their life, safety and freedom are not violated. But all too often, we hear and see civil rights violations occurring. At Karns & Karns, we believe that those who hold a position of power should not be allowed to abuse that power. Our law firm handles both state and federal civil rights cases and advocates for our clients’ civil rights.

If you have been hurt because of an assault, homicide, mistreatment, neglect or discrimination, it is essential that you consult with an experienced civil rights attorney.

Common civil rights violations are:

  • Police brutality
  • Excessive force
  • Prison abuse or neglect
  • Wrongful death by law enforcement
  • Sexual assault
  • School abuse and neglect
  • Mistreatment of children or the disabled
  • Foster care abuse and neglect

Because your fundamental human rights are at issue, we handle every civil rights case with personalized attention. We do this by digging into the facts and history of every violation and the aftermath of what you and your family have suffered. This begins with making sure your civil rights claim is filed within the appropriate deadlines. Litigation can be very stressful, and civil rights claims are particularly stressful because of the preconceived “positive” opinion everyone has of police officers, teachers, doctors, or politicians. We are civil rights lawyers who know how to deal with these issues and we make sure that we help our clients.
