Civil Rights

Protecting the civil rights of prisoners.

Everyone is entitled to basic civil rights – even people who have been convicted of a crime and are serving time in a jail or prison. Too often, these individuals are preyed upon and fall victim to various types of abuse. Our experienced team can help individuals who have been victims of misconduct by jail authorities or correctional officers seek justice, equality and fairness.
