Civil Rights

The United States Constitution guarantees every American citizen certain civil rights of personal liberty. Among these fundamental civil rights and liberties are the freedoms of speech, religion, assembly, to petition the government, to bear arms, to procedural due process, and to be free from unreasonable searches and seizures and cruel and unusual punishments. Disrespectful, discourteous, slow or unresponsive service from a government representative does not usually give rise to a civil rights violation.

If you think your civil rights may have been violated, you will want an experienced, trial tested attorney to analyze your situation to determine if you have a civil rights claim. Marc J. Victor has over 15 years experience as a trial attorney. The law firm of Marc J. Victor, P.C. will give you aggressive representation and not just hold your hand and walk you through the system.
