Civil rights defense
Lansing civil rights attorney protecting your civil liberties

As Americans, we have the privilege of living in a nation where we are granted fundamental rights. Unfortunately, far too often, our government mistreats our fellow citizens and violates their civil rights. As a criminal defense attorney in Lansing who firmly believes in America’s ideals of liberty, the rule of law, and equal protection, I have dedicated my career to protecting others from discrimination and upholding our Constitutional liberties.

Types of civil rights cases in Michigan

There are a number of ways that your rights could be violated. Violations can stem from police and government officials, employers, landlords, and even business owners and individuals you encounter in day-to-day life.

Examples of common civil rights violations include

  • Police brutality
  • Unjustified search and seizures
  • Being fired or passed over for a promotion due to discrimination
  • Cruel and unusual punishment
  • Housing discrimination

Regardless of the circumstances of your situation, I look forward to hearing your story and taking on the legal fight for you. I understand that a civil rights violation can be a truly draining and challenging experience. I want to ease your burden and take the legal work off your plate.

How I can help

Civil rights violations can be tricky to prove but I remain committed to exhausting every possible resource available to build your case. Equipped with advanced technology and the determination to leave no stone unturned in my investigation, I develop strong arguments that position you for success. I am a devoted Lansing civil rights attorney who strives to keep my clients updated every step of the way and provide them with sincere advice, honest expectations, and a thorough explanation of their options.
