Experienced Civil Rights Lawyers in Minneapolis
Civil rights are an easy thing to take for granted. In fact, most people don’t think of them — until they’ve been violated. At Magna Law Firm we have a deep commitment to progressive civil rights work. We regularly represent individuals and entities who have been the victim of harassment, coercion, intimidation, physical violence or discrimination based upon age, disability, medical condition, national origin, sex, race, ethnicity, or religion, as well as those whose constitutional rights have been violated by the government, the police, employers or others. We pride ourselves on serving the needs of our clients by providing the highest quality legal services, while at the same time promoting social justice through the vigorous enforcement of our federal and state constitution and civil rights laws.
Some of the specific types of claims that Magna Law attorneys can help you with include:
- Discrimination, harassment and hate crimes
- First Amendment freedom of speech, expression and religion
- Fair housing
- Public accommodations
- Prisoner rights
- Police misconduct and brutality
- Prosecutorial misconduct
- Due Process and Equal Protection violations and other Constitutional torts
- Unlawful arrest, detention, entry, search and seizure
- Racial profiling
Too often, people who have had their civil rights violated will simply choose to walk away rather than fight thinking it is “too much trouble.” Remember, too, that it isn’t just your own rights you protect in standing up and fighting; you’re also protecting the rights of everyone you know. Our experience in these matters will help. However, early investigation is important.
