Civil Rights Cases in New Hampshire

Your rights under the law include but are not limited to the following:

  • Freedom of speech
  • Freedom of assembly
  • Freedom of religion
  • Freedom to petition the government
  • The right to due process
  • The right to vote
  • The right to a fair trial
  • The right to a public education
  • The right to use public services
  • The right to be free of discrimination based on race, color, religion, national origin, gender, disability, or age (protected characteristics)

Civil rights violation cases can be based on a wide range of abuses. These cases can include such matters as illegal searches and seizure, cruel and unusual punishment, the denial of housing, a job, a promotion, a mortgage, a seat at a restaurant, and other social denials based on the protected characteristics mentioned above.

Many civil rights violations will involve filing a claim with a government agency as the first step. For example, if you have suffered discrimination in the workplace, filing a claim with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) would have to be done first. Our firm can initiate the proper legal steps in order to seek the justice you deserve for any civil rights abuses.

To better understand your situation and what steps need to be taken, we advise that you discuss the matter with one of our experienced attorneys at Douglas, Leonard & Garvey, P.C. as soon as possible.
