Common Types of Civil Rights Violations

At Carpenter & Zuckerman, our firm has a proven track record of results in civil rights lawsuits. With billions of dollars recovered for our clients, you can trust us to keep your best interests at heart from start to finish while advocating for the maximum compensation you deserve. 

Don’t wait to seek justice after a civil rights violation! Securing sound counsel is key to protect your hard-earned reputation while avoiding civil and criminal penalties. Fortunately, our attorneys are available 24/7 to guide your legal steps with care and precision. 

Here are some common types of civil rights violations we handle: 

Police Brutality

Excessive force by law enforcement is not only a violation of trust, but of your legal rights. Under the Tom Bane Civil Rights Act of 1987 and other legislation, individuals are protected from police misconduct, including unwarranted physical violence, false arrests, and illegal searches and seizures. Our attorneys are committed to holding law enforcement accountable by pursuing justice and maximum compensation for victims of police brutality, ensuring your civil rights are protected in California.

Hate Crimes

Carpenter & Zuckerman has decades of experience providing diligent advocacy to hate crime victims. We understand that such atrocities often inflict severe emotional and physical harm, which is why we’re committed to helping you seek justice and healing by holding offenders accountable for these atrocities. Whether you were unjustly targeted for your race, religion, sexual orientation, or other protected characteristics, our firm is committed to advocating for a society free of hatred and discrimination. 

Voter Suppression

Every citizen has the fundamental right to participate in the democratic process. Unfortunately, some parties employ tactics aimed at disenfranchising voters, especially those from marginalized communities. At Carpenter & Zuckerman, our advocates work tirelessly to combat voter suppression. We can ensure your voice is heard and counted in every election by providing the skilled representation you deserve.

Employment & Housing Discrimination

Our firm is dedicated to fighting for fairness, equality, and your rightful compensation in the workplace and housing sector. Discrimination in employment and housing is not only morally reprehensible, but illegal under the Unruh Civil Rights Act of 1959 and the Civil Rights Act of 1964. If you were unjustly treated based on race, religion, sex, or other protected characteristic, seeking sound counsel is critical to exercising your rights under state and federal laws.
