Civil Rights

A Law Firm That Stands Up For Your Rights

You have the right to be free from abuses and violations of your civil rights by the police and other government agents. However, you may need an experienced, aggressive civil rights attorney to protect you against false arrest, excessive force and other violations. If you have experienced a violation of your civil rights or other forms of discrimination, whether by the government or in the workplace, make sure you talk with a lawyer as soon as possible to get the help you need.

Based in Vineland, New Jersey, Louis Charles Shapiro, P.A., is a law firm dedicated to protecting the rights of clients against police and government misconduct and against workplace discrimination. Mr. Shapiro has 20 years of legal experience and has represented a variety of clients in civil rights cases over those two decades.

Attorney Louis Charles Shapiro brings claims against federal, state and local authorities that can include violations such as:

  • Excessive use of force
  • False arrest
  • Abuse of power
  • Illegal search and seizure
  • Invasion of privacy

You Must File Your Claim Within 90 Days Of The Incident

When bringing a personal injury or another tort claim against the police or a public entity in New Jersey, you are required to serve a Notice of Tort Claim to preserve your rights under the law within 90 days of the incident. Then, six months after the notice, but before the two-year anniversary of the incident, you can file your lawsuit.

Be mindful of these deadlines. Incarceration does not stop the running of the notice period.

Mr. Shapiro can help you file your initial tort claim notice and walk you through every step of the legal process involved with protecting your rights if you have a potential civil rights lawsuit.
