Our firm is dedicated to protecting individuals from government overreach. Section 1983 of the U.S. Code provides a powerful means for citizens to seek redress when their constitutional rights have been violated by state or local government officials. Our team specializes in representing plaintiffs in Section 1983 actions, ensuring that justice is served for those whose rights under the Constitution have been infringed. One example victory at our firm was related to the unjustified imprisonment of Trever Cannon. The complaint can be found here:
In addition to representing clients in Section 1983 claims against state and local government entities, our firm is also investigating rights violations by federal government officials. When federal authorities overstep their bounds, plaintiffs often seek redress through “Bivens” actions, named after the 1971 US Supreme Court case Bivens v. Six Unknown Named Agents, 403 U.S. 388 (1971). Similar to Section 1983, Bivens actions allow individuals to sue federal officials for constitutional violations, including the infringement of due process rights. This is particularly pertinent in cases where federal actions result in the unjust deprivation of property or other fundamental rights without proper legal proceedings.
The Fifth and Fourteenth Amendments to the U.S. Constitution mandate that no person shall be deprived of life, liberty, or property without due process of law. This fundamental principle ensures that all government actions affecting your property rights are fair and just. Our attorneys are adept at navigating the complexities of these cases and will persist via legal avenues to ensure that our clients receive the full protection of the law.

If you believe your rights have been violated by government overreach, particularly in cases involving the unlawful taking of property without due process or wrongful imprisonment, we would like to speak with you to evaluate your claim.
