Protection in Police Brutality and Employment Discrimination Cases

Civil Rights and Discrimination Lawyer Orange County

Civil rights are privileges and protections which are granted to all U.S. citizens as specified in our Constitution’s Bill of Rights, along with the Civil Rights Act of 1964.   Among these are the rights to due process of law, equal treatment under the law, and freedom from discrimination on the basis of race, religion, belief, gender, or sexual orientation.  When these rights are unlawfully violated by an employer, co-worker, police officer, or other party, the injured party has the right to seek redress through the legal system.  At the Roberts Law Firm’s Santa Ana, Orange County-area practice, civil rights discrimination lawyer Jeff Roberts defends the rights of victims of discrimination, police brutality, unlawful termination, and other violations of civil rights.

Police Brutality

While the overwhelming majority of police officers responsibly uphold their duties to protect and serve the public, occasionally a police officer will engage in misconduct and exhibit behavior that is excessively violent or brutal.  People who are subjected to police brutality can sustain severe injuries as a result, includingtraumatic brain injury or spinal cord injury. If you live in the Santa Ana and Orange County area and your civil rights have been violated, discrimination lawyer Jeff Roberts and The Roberts Law Firmwork tirelessly to see that police officers who abuse their power are held accountable for any personal injuries or wrongful deaths that occur under their watch.
