Civil Rights Attorney in California

Your Civil Rights matter. Unfortunately, the truth is that the civil rights guaranteed by our Constitution and Bill of Rights aren’t always respected. People get hurt when their civil rights aren’t protected and respected by government officials. When you need a civil rights Attorney in California, you need Justin Palmer Law Group. Contact us today.

We specialize in civil rights cases, taking on clients wronged by government officials and others in a position of power when they don’t follow the rules. We work for you to ensure your pain and the damages against you are recognized, and we know what it takes to win your civil rights claim.

Whether you’re looking to bring a claim for excessive force by law enforcement, retaliation by government officials, or any other civil rights claim, we’ll be happy to discuss your case and design a plan to fight for the compensation you deserve.

Why Bring A Civil Rights Case?

After your civil rights have been violated, or the civil rights of a loved one, it can feel pointless to bring a civil rights case since you’ve already been wronged once. But you and your loved ones deserve justice and skilled representation to help you get that justice.
Two possible outcomes of a successful civil rights case are monetary damages or an injunction. Both are good reasons to consider bringing your civil rights case to court.

Monetary Damages

If you’re seeking monetary damages in a civil rights case, you’re essentially seeking compensation for pain and suffering due to your civil rights being denied. The amount of compensation you may be eligible to receive depends on the situation, but we will always seek the maximum monetary damages for your case.
This kind of compensation may be issued to cover:

  1. Lost wages
  2. Medical bills
  3. Pain and Suffering
  4. Lost earning capacity

Loss of Liberty

Compensation is not limited to one of these categories, you can seek compensation for any combination that is directly related to your case.


Injunctions provide a guarantee that similar situations won’t happen again. Injunctions are also often called court orders.

Seeking an injunction is a way to try and protect others from encountering the same kind of civil rights violation you’ve suffered, though the exact details of an injunction can vary.

What Are Civil Rights Cases?

Civil rights cases are varied and cover a wide range of situations, but they all have one thing: the plaintiff’s federally protected civil rights must have been violated.

Civil rights cases can be brought for a wide range of reasons, including but not limited to:

  • Police misconduct
  • Police brutality
  • Educational discrimination
  • Denial of welfare benefits
  • Employment discrimination
  • Workplace harassment
  • Denial of voting rights
  • Failure of equal protection under the law
  • Denial of the right to freedom of speech

Since you have a wide range of civil rights, there is a similarly wide range of civil rights cases that can be brought before the courts to seek justice. We'll be happy to help if you suspect you might have a civil rights case but aren't sure.

Is There A Statute Of Limitations On Civil Rights Cases?

Yes, there is typically a statute of limitations on civil rights cases, but different kinds of cases have different limitations. The courts will use the statute of limitations under the most similar charge. Often that means a personal injury statute of limitations, which is two years, but cases of discrimination, retaliation, and other cases may have a different timeline.

Contact a qualified attorney to determine what statute of limitations applies to your case, even if you’re concerned that the statute of limitations may have passed.
