Civil Rights Lawyers

Our government should protect civil rights and our freedoms. However, there are times where the system fails and we are betrayed by police officers or other government officials. Sometimes government officials will even retaliate against citizens or public employees who exercise their First Amendment Rights to speak on issues of public concern. Whether it be a threat based on race or a police officer using excessive force while completing an arrest, individuals and families are affected by these incidents all too often.

At Gingras, Thomsen & Wachs, we understand the impact these violations can have on your life. Our compassionate team of civil rights attorneys has been successful in many cases, helping individuals receive damages for the injuries and emotional stress they have endured. We bring the fight, the passion, and the dedication against all civil rights misconduct and we are ready for battle.

If you believe your civil rights have been violated, or you aren’t sure if your situation qualifies as a civil rights case, contact Gingras, Thomsen & Wachs for a free consultation.
