Civil Rights Violations

Civil Rights Violations

In 1776, our forefathers ensured that every person in America had unalienable rights that are guaranteed by the United States Constitution. Unfortunately, there are times when these cherished rights are trampled upon by governmental institutions or individuals.

The Bill of Rights in the Constitution of the United States was the first American document to guarantee citizens certain rights and protections. Violations of the Fourth Amendment, the Sixth Amendment, and even the Fourteenth Amendment are common in litigation involving violations of civil rights by law enforcement.

When you feel like your constitutional rights have been violated, you need an attorney who will hit the ground running to protect you and your liberties. At the Law Firm of Montoya Shaffer, L.L.C. we are dedicated to representing people who have had their constitutionally guaranteed civil rights violated.

In the context of law enforcement, police officers may fail to operate with the integrity and fairness that the public deserves, often violating citizens’ rights and damaging their own reputations in a wide range of police activities:

  • Use of excessive force in the arrest a suspect.
  • Police brutality.
  • False arrest.
  • Racial profiling in enforcement of statutes or regulations.
  • Illegal detention or imprisonment.
  • Aggravated sexual abuse.
  • Searches conducted without a warrant.
  • Failure to provide a timely release to a pretrial criminal suspect.
  • Misapplication of deadly force in apprehending a suspect.
  • Failure to meet the medical needs of a suspect.
