Our Civil Rights Practice Group is comprised of zealous advocates who take action when government entities violate individuals’ constitutional rights and freedoms.  Individuals should not be deprived of their basic rights by the very people sworn to serve, protect, and uphold them.  Our team at Rupp Baase Pfalzgraf Cunningham works aggressively and effectively to enforce remedies available against those who overstep their bounds and trammel a person’s civil rights.  We also understand the personal difficulties faced by individuals navigating situations where they are wrongly accused, arrested, or convicted.

Deprivation of constitutional rights can take place in many forms, including:

  • Police brutality;
  • Excessive force;
  • False imprisonment;
  • False arrest;
  • Malicious prosecution;
  • Criminal charges without validity;
  • Abuse of process;
  • Conspiracy of municipal officers; and
  • Other civil rights abuses

Our litigation attorneys have years of combined litigation experience to leverage against governments and their personnel who would attempt to remove your basic rights and freedoms.  Allow our team to hold accountable those who violate your civil rights.
