Pennsylvania Civil Rights Lawyers
Giving Victims a Voice
Every person in the United States, including immigrants and those involved in criminal activity, has certain basic rights that must be respected by authorities. These rights are guaranteed by the U.S. Constitution, the Civil Rights Act and many other critically important laws. Unfortunately, authority figures are not always respectful of these rights. When civil rights are infringed, it is the job of an attorney to step in and help the victim stand up for what is right.
Since our founding in 1990, Prince Law Offices, P.C., has protected the civil rights people from all walks of life. Our Pennsylvania civil rights attorneys possess extensive knowledge of constitutional law and civil rights statutes. Using a statute known as Section 1983 and related laws, we have successfully sued state and local police departments as well as federal law enforcement agencies who violate the basic rights of the people of Pennsylvania, recovering compensation for those who were harmed.
We provide powerful civil rights representation in state and federal courts throughout Pennsylvania. Call our civil rights attorneys at 610-845-3803 or toll free 888-313-0416. You can also contact our law firm online.
Our clients often feel that no one in “the system” cares about them. That is just not true. Our Pennsylvania civil rights attorneys care deeply about them. We pursue compensation and a sense of justice for those abused by overzealous law enforcement officers and other government actors. We take civil rights cases related to:
- Prosecutorial misconduct
- Police shootings
- Police brutality and excessive force
- Unlawful search and seizure
- Discrimination/racial profiling
The Second Amendment and the Civil Rights of Gun Owners
Gun owners are frequently deprived of their rights, even though the right to keep and bear arms is enshrined in the Second Amendment. Pennsylvania has its own laws related to firearms as well. Unfortunately, many police officers are unaware of the rights these laws provide. They sometimes arrest gun owners even though absolutely nothing illegal has happened.
Firearms Industry Consulting Group, a division of Prince Law Offices, P.C., is one of the few firms in Pennsylvania that maintains a vibrant firearms law practice. We represent gun owners in cases against government officials who have infringed civil rights by, for example:
- Arresting someone for firearms possession even if he or she had a valid concealed carry permit
- Arresting someone for openly carrying a weapon, which is legal in Pennsylvania (except Philadelphia) even if you do not have a firearms license
- Illegally confiscating firearms
