At CicerAdams, we are committed to protecting the civil rights of everyone in America. Our attorneys understand that protecting the individual freedoms of a single victim helps to ensure the freedoms of all.
Civil rights law encompasses many things, including free speech, equal protection and discrimination. Our practice has always been about helping those that encounter any type of infringement upon their constitutional rights. However, our focus in civil rights litigation has been on police misconduct. We appreciate law enforcement that does its job to protect the safety and freedom of their fellow citizens. However, law enforcement harms the safety and freedom of their fellow citizens when it violates the fundamental freedoms guaranteed to all of us. In these cases, it is the responsibility of the law and civil rights attorneys to stand between the police and the people.
Illegal searches and seizures threaten the sanctity of our homes. Warrants are required in all but a few exceptional circumstances. To invade someone’s privacy and force open their lives without the benefit of a properly executed warrant is a violation of our basic freedoms.
In the past, searches like these have been used to humiliate and harass people the police didn’t like. The power granted to members of the police is a tool to keep us safe. When it is used as a weapon, an important trust has been violated, and nobody is safe. When you stand up for your rights, you stand up for us all. If your rights have been violated by law enforcement contact us immediately for a free consultation about your case.
