Civil Rights Litigation

Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, serves as the federal benchmark in the protection of individual liberties.

Our firm provides representation in those cases where employees claim violations of their civil rights, by persons employed by the State of New Jersey or those acting under the authority of State law. The most frequently used remedy to recover against municipalities and public officials for alleged wrongful conduct is the Civil Rights Act of 1871, more commonly known as Section 1983. These claims are often based on allegations of:

  • Excessive use of force
  • False arrest
  • False imprisonment
  • Malicious prosecution
  • Due process violations
  • Improper search and seizure
