Protections Under Federal & State Law

Civil rights laws in the United States guarantee certain rights to promote equal treatment and protect against unlawful government actions harming individuals. These laws apply to a variety of settings such as employment, education, housing, police encounters, prisoners, municipal government overreach, licenses, zoning and more. In Pennsylvania, these laws mirror the federal civil rights laws. In New Jersey additional rights are protected. If you believe your civil rights have been violated at work, in education, or during interactions with law enforcement, you should seek the advice of an attorney.

We represent clients in situations involving:

  • Federal government
  • A city, town, or municipal government
  • University or college
  • Local school board
  • Law enforcement
  • Employment

The law protects individuals from being treated unfairly based on race, nationality, religion, or any other protected demographic. Our civil rights attorney in Philadelphia has extensive knowledge of 42 U.S.C. §1983 ( the Civil Rights Act of 1871), the Civil Rights Act of 1964, Age Discrimination in Employment Act (ADEA), Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), the Equal Pay Act, Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA), Pregnancy Discrimination Act, and other federal, state, and local civil rights laws.

"The police must obey the law while enforcing the law."
