Civil Rights


Civil Rights protect individuals and groups from unfair treatment due to your color, race, natural origin, age, gender, religion, or disability.

We Are Experienced In Civil Rights Litigation

We at Ivie, McNeill, & Wyatt, are highly experienced in various forms of civil rights litigation. We have successfully defended and prosecuted cases for the last 35 years, and are devoted to helping you obtain the justice that you deserve.

Civil rights laws are complicated, complex, and varied. If you believe any of your rights have been infringed, our team of lawyers both have the expertise and the dedication to provide you with the best possible advice and representation.

Each American citizen or resident has a long list of freedoms and liberties that include:

  • Freedom of speech
  • Freedom of assembly
  • Freedom of association
  • The right to choose and practice your religion
  • Access to public education
  • Equal opportunities for public housing
  • The right to vote
  • Equal access to services
  • Fair treatment by law enforcers, and a long list of other freedoms that provide fair treatment.

Your rights also include the freedom against discrimination, which includes opportunities for employment, as well as protects the individual from other forms of outright prejudice that hinders your right to practice your liberties.

We, at IMW, fully understand how taxing, costly, and emotionally-damaging civil rights violations can be. The law guarantees your freedoms but when these are violated, we are more than committed to help you right the wrongs and achieve justice.

One of the most common cases of violations are private lawsuits that involve the improper conduct of law enforcers. We understand the process of filing a report and eventually filing a case can be a scary experience.

Civil Rights Violations Can Include:

  • Police brutality
  • Unjustified police shootings
  • Illegal searches
  • False arrests
  • Malicious prosecutions
  • Other abuses of law enforcement power

If you, a family member, or a close associate suffered from any of these violations, as well as infringements on the rights as stated above, then it’s time that you seek the advice of a civil rights legal professional.

Our team of lawyers and staff will work with you in each step of the process, giving you advice, guiding you, and help you expose and fight against the abuses of those in power and of perpetrators.
