Boston Civil Rights Lawyer

The United States Constitution, as well as the Massachusetts Constitution’s Declaration of Rights and Massachusetts statutory laws, grant you civil rights that cannot be legally denied by any person. However, this does not stop those involved in the criminal justice system, police, and other law enforcement agencies from violating your rights. When this happens, you must contact an lawyer as soon as possible. The Boston civil rights lawyers of The Baez Law Firm will defend your civil rights and see to it that you are financially compensated for any wrongdoing done to you that causes harm.

Boston Civil Rights Violations Come in Many Forms

Our Boston civil rights lawyers represent clients who have suffered from a variety of wrongdoings, including discrimination, police brutality, and wrongful arrest. Our lawyers have a vast depth of experience in defending victims’ civil rights. Our civil rights areas of practice include all of the following.

Police Brutality

Police brutality includes the use of excessive force or intimidation, the physical assault of a prisoner, and more. As police forces have become more militarized and less training time has been allocated to de-escalating heated situations, police brutality has risen. Police will often go for their gun, taser, or pepper spray first and ask questions later. If you have been the victim of police brutality, you need an experienced Boston lawyer who is not afraid to stand up for your rights.

Wrongful Conviction

Not everyone who gets sent to jail or incarcerated in prison committed the crime they are being punished for. Eyewitnesses make mistakes, police or other people provide incorrect evidence or statements, and juries can become easily confused or biased. We work closely with forensics to exonerate innocent people for crimes they did not commit.

False arrest

Wrongful detention can be a violation of your civil rights when you were detained unlawfully. To be put in jail, law enforcement must have reason to believe that you committed a crime. The Baez Law Firm takes false arrest cases incredibly seriously and will work to ensure that the city of Boston makes their mistake right.

Discrimination

Under Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, it is illegal to discriminate against someone based on the color of their skin, race, sex, gender identity, pregnancy status, country of origin, age, or religion. The Civil Rights Act protects against workplace harassment, retaliation, and discrimination in the forms of:

  • Not hiring someone based on the color of their skin:
  • Firing someone because they are pregnant;
  • Not promoting or giving a person a raise because of their national origin, and
  • Much more.

Native American Affairs

Native American tribes are sovereign nations and have unique aspects regarding the legal system. You need an lawyer with in-depth knowledge of these laws to ensure that your rights are protected.
