Do You Have Questions About Filing a Civil Rights Lawsuit?

Having your rights taken away is one of the most demeaning situations a person may experience. Despite living in a country founded upon the principles of liberty and justice, each year, people suffer harm due to discrimination, sexual harassment, wrongful imprisonment and unacceptable conditions in prisons and jails. Fortunately, the Constitution and other federal and state laws offer protection from civil rights abuses. Regardless of your race, gender, national origin, disability, religion, sexual orientation, gender identity, or age, you can apply these critical civil rights laws when your rights have been violated. Grant & Eisenhofer’s civil rights attorneys are here to help you. 

Grant & Eisenhofer litigates multiple types of civil rights cases, including sexual harassment, sexual assault, wrongful convictions, prisoner rights, and discrimination lawsuits.

Grant & Eisenhofer civil rights attorneys can help you determine if you have legal options to recover compensation for a wrongful conviction.

Rights of Inmates in Prisons and Jails

  • Discrimination

Sexual Harassment or Assault

Sexual harassment and sexual assault occurs in many places, including in the workplace, at school, in prison or while in police custody.

Some survivors may suffer from post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) while others may lose their careers. Grant & Eisenhofer civil rights attorneys may be able to help you file a lawsuit for sexual harassment or sexual assault.

School Bullying
