Each citizen of the United States of America is constitutionally entitled to certain legal and civil rights and freedoms that should not, under any circumstances, be violated. Unfortunately, there are many times when these rights are, indeed, compromised, and it is wise to seek the legal advice and representation of an experienced civil rights attorney if this occurs.
With many civil rights violation cases, there is generally an underlying criminal case that prefaced the occurrence of a civil rights violation. For example, you may be pulled over for speeding and the arresting officer alleges that you resisted. To subdue you, the officer may have felt the need to use a Taser or other form of excessive force. If you fight against the officer, you may be additionally cited for battery on a police officer.
In the above scenario, there may be a blatant violation of your legal and civil rights; however, you must first face the criminal charges. At Patrick J. Martinez & Associates, we understand how crucial it is to preserve your civil rights, but we also acknowledge the fact that your civil rights case will have no foundation if you are convicted of criminal charges. To achieve your goal of defending your constitutional rights and freedoms, our civil rights attorney will first defend your innocence in court.
