Helping You Protect Your Civil Rights
Under the U.S. and New York constitutions, citizens are guaranteed certain civil rights, including the freedom of speech, freedom of association, freedom from false arrest and freedom from the use of excessive force, just to name a few.
When a government official or agent violates these rights ― either through acts or intimidation ― you may be able to seek legal recourse by filing a civil rights claim. However, filing such a claim can be difficult without legal representation.
If you believe a government employee, such as a police officer, has violated your civil rights, let Luibrand Law Firm, PLLC, help you hold the government accountable for these wrongful and illegal acts.
In truth, most attorneys will never handle a civil rights claim. So, how do you know which lawyer to trust with your case? The answer is simple: you trust the lawyer who has experience and a proven track record ― you trust Kevin Luibrand. Not only does he have more than three decades of legal experience, but The National Trial Lawyers selected him as one of the Top 100 trial attorneys in the U.S. in 2014.
