Constitutional law and civil rights
The United States Constitution protects the rights of every U.S. citizen. At Manley Burke we fully believe in that truth. When the constitutional and civil rights of a group or individual are threatened or violated, we are prepared to take action. In fact, we have successfully argued in front of the United States Supreme Court to protect an individual’s right to recover damages from a county government for civil rights violations.
We use our breadth of legal knowledge and experience to fight on behalf of individuals and groups in the face of discrimination, misuse of government power and unconstitutional treatment. We have successfully:
- Conducted civil rights challenges to the constitutionality of local sign ordinances
- Pursued federal housing discrimination actions on behalf of local civil rights organizations
- Represented classes of inmates in asbestos-related claims
- Represented employees establishing their right to participate in the Civil Service System
If you believe your civil rights have been violated, let us help. We stand ready to defend your constitutional rights.
