Civil Rights &

Government Misconduct

“Every person who, under color of any statute, ordinance, regulation, custom, or usage, of any State or Territory or the District of Columbia, subjects, or causes to be subjected, any citizen of the United States or other person within the jurisdiction thereof to the deprivation of any rights, privileges, or immunities secured by the Constitution and laws, shall be liable to the party injured in an action at law, suit in equity, or other proper proceeding for redress, except that in any action brought against a judicial officer for an act or omission taken in such officer’s judicial capacity, injunctive relief shall not be granted unless a declaratory decree was violated or declaratory relief was unavailable.”

42 U.S. Code §1983

Civil rights violations committed by police and other public officials are an old wound in America, but by no means a healed one.  42 U.S. Code § 1983 allows for a legal remedy for those who have reason to believe their rights have been violated in this way, and Vanguard Law specializes in such cases. Our attorneys are passionate about this particular practice area, and the use of new technologies allows them to employ every advantage in finding the truth for you. We seek out store and street surveillance, dash and body camera footage, GMS data, and the wealth of files found in computers and phones to work – and we understand the importance of securing it quickly. In a world where everyone carries a camera around in their pocket, you can’t afford to disregard the potential ocean of evidence – and with Vanguard Law, you won’t have to.
