PRACTICE AREAS  |  CIVIL RIGHTS

At Heideman Poor, we are proud to fight for those who have been discriminated against and those who have been subjected to unlawful and unconstitutional conduct by police officers and the criminal justice system. We understand that victims of discrimination and civil rights violations often feel like David taking on Goliath. We are tenacious advocates who welcome the challenge of fighting on your behalf.

We understand that civil rights cases are challenging – challenging because of the task of taking on the government, and challenging because the legal standards and procedures that apply in civil rights cases are designed to make it difficult for ordinary citizens to vindicate their rights. That’s why we will work with you to fairly evaluate your case and will fight hard to achieve justice for you.

Violations of your civil rights can take a variety of forms – race and ethnic discrimination, gender discrimination, age discrimination, sexual harassment, racial and ethnic profiling, disability discrimination, police brutality, and various other forms of law enforcement misconduct. Violations of civil rights can happen in a large number of settings – in the workplace, in housing, in education, and in encounters with the police and the criminal justice system. If you have been the victim of discrimination or a violation of your civil rights, do not wait to act. Many kinds of civil rights actions are subject to very short and strict deadlines, notice requirements, and statutes of limitation.
