Civil Rights

Our firm has a long history of protecting the federal and state constitutional rights of our clients. As an expert in Civil Rights, David Pishko has been an adjunct professor of law at Wake Forest University for the past 20 years. He teaches the fundamentals of civil pre-trial litigation and Suing Government which deals with lawsuits against federal, state and local governments.

When a government agency oversteps its bounds, a citizen may have a claim for money damages or other relief. The most common Civil Rights complaint involves allegations of color of law violations. Another common complaint involves racial violence, such as physical assaults, homicides, verbal or written threats, or desecration of property.

We have successfully handled claims involving:

  • Wrongful conviction
  • Ineffective assistance of defense counsel
  • Deprivation of free speech or association
  • Racial discrimination
  • Whistleblower rights

If you think you have been discriminated against, you can file a complaint with the U.S. Office of Civil Rights (800-368-1019).


You can also tell us about it. We can help you analyze the situation from a legal standpoint and, if necessary, determine the next steps you should take.
