We’ll Defend Your Freedom as a Civil Rights Lawyer
The United States is founded upon ideals of individual liberty and the proposition that all people are equal and deserve equal protection under the law. Your civil rights are fundamental protections from an overreach of government power and certain unlawful conduct by private parties.
Hyland Law, Ltd. stands firm against unjust, demeaning and discriminatory practices. Our knowledgeable team works diligently to investigate incidents of unlawful treatment to build an effective case strategy.
With years of experience, our lawyers thoroughly understand the laws related to your civil rights and handle all types of state and federal claims. We have a solid record of success in obtaining injunctive relief in the form of court orders to end violations, as well as monetary damages for certain type of egregious mistreatment.
Advocates for Your Individual Freedoms
The U.S. Constitution limits the power of the federal government and specifically reserves certain rights to the people through the first 10 amendments, which comprise the Bill of Rights. The 14th Amendment to the Constitution forces state governments to honor these rights as well.
If our incisive investigation reveals evidence that an agent of federal, state or local government has violated your rights, our determine attorneys can advise you on a course of action. We handle claims relating to everything from the first and second amendments to the sixth and eighth amendments.
Depending on the facts of the case, certain due process protections may apply to undocumented residents as they do to citizens and legal residents.
Defending You Against Discrimination
The landmark Civil Rights Act of 1965 removed many barriers to equal protection that existed due to state laws that had institutionalized discrimination. Since then, Congress has passed additional protections to outlaw discriminatory practices. Hyland Law manages claims of discrimination related to any of the following:
- Equal compensation
- Genetic information
- National origin
- Race or ethnicity
- Sexual harassment
- Workplace retaliation
If you’ve experienced discrimination, consulting an experienced civil rights lawyer as soon as possible can help you secure your best chance at fighting your case. There is also a limit on the amount of time that you can have your case heard, so time is of the essence.
