Civil Law

When Your Rights Have Been Violated…

Each person is entitled to a certain set of rights without regard to race, religion, sex, age or disabilities. But just because you may be entitled, it doesn’t mean you always are treated with these rights in mind.

When you first come to us with your case, we review any documentation you may already have and work with you to determine whether you’ve been damaged and to what extent — and whether you have a case worth pursuing. Our goal is to prove a pattern of unfairness.

Pursuing Justice When Law Enforcement Violates Your Rights

We have substantial experience handling cases involving police misconduct. Under the U.S. Constitution, you have the following rights:

  • Protection from false arrests or malicious prosecution
  • Due process in a court of law
  • Freedom from excessive bails and fines, and cruel and unusual punishment
  • A speedy and public trial
  • Privacy from unreasonable and unwarranted government intrusion into your home and personal affairs

If these rights have been violated by a member of a police department or prosecutor’s office, talk to us. The law office of Wicks Law Firm, PLLC, can help.

Even within a police department, abuse can occur. We help members of the police force sue the department when procedures aren’t followed, when harassment or discrimination occurs, or when something just isn’t right. Why do we do this? Because injustice, whether it’s committed against our neighbor next door or a local police officer, eats away at us. We believe everyone deserves to be treated fairly and with respect, so we do all we can to pursue justice.

Protecting The Rights Of Those Who Can’t Protect Themselves

At the law office of Wicks Law Firm, PLLC, our hearts go out to children with classifications and disabilities that entitle them to certain services under the law. Our sense of injustice flares when school districts don’t provide them. These children and their families need strong advocates to ensure they receive the proper resources. Don’t go into an IEP or other meeting with social workers, special services or other administrators without talking to us first.
