Civil rights law covers a wide range of issues from race discrimination to sexual harassment and fair housing. Civil rights are the rights we have under the United States Constitution to receive equal treatment and to be free from unfair treatment in a number of issues, including education, employment, and housing based on legally protected characteristics. If you feel your civil rights have been infringed, The Bloom Firm can help you.
Laws guaranteeing and regulating civil rights come from state and federal law, either through a state or federal constitution, statutes, or court decisions. Some municipalities and counties also have their own ordinances and laws related to civil rights.
Our civil rights include freedom of speech, press and assembly, the right to bear arms, and the right to vote. Discrimination occurs if these civil rights are denied or interfered with because of membership in a particular group or class (such as gender, race, national origin, sex or religion). Depending on the facts of the case and the applicable laws, a lawsuit claiming civil rights violations can be filed in federal or state court.
If you feel your civil rights have been violated, contact The Bloom Firm. We can talk to you about your situation, go over the facts and determine which of your rights have been affected, who is responsible, and the best options to pursue legal action. There are time limits to filing civil rights claims, so don’t delay in contacting our office or you may be unable to file legal claims.
