Can a Civil Rights Attorney Help?
If your rights were violated by a government official or a company, you may be entitled to compensation. This can be a long, complicated process. Before you file an actual lawsuit for some civil rights violations allegations, you must file a claim/complaint with a federal or state agency first.
For example, someone who is alleging employment discrimination must first file a complaint with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) and it must be filed within 180 days of when the act occurred. Our attorneys can let you know if your case requires you to file a government claim and where you should file your lawsuit (in state or federal court).
If you or a loved one believe your rights have been violated under the USA and Illinois constitution, do not hesitate to request a free consultation from the attorneys at Edward Johnson and Associates P.C. or for immediate assistance call 708-606-4386.
