Advocating For You If Your Civil Rights Were Violated
State and federal civil rights laws are supposed to ensure we all receive fair and equal treatment. That means we are not supposed to be treated differently in regard to employment, housing, access to credit or public accommodations. We are not supposed to be mistreated by police, prosecutors or other public officials.
Sadly, what is supposed to happen is not always the reality experienced by many Americans every day. Civil rights violations are common, but victims do have legal recourse available to them.
At the Law Office of Ryan J. Villa LLC, we are committed to protecting the civil rights of people in Albuquerque and throughout New Mexico. If your rights have been violated and you feel alone in the legal system, you don’t have to be. We are here to even the playing field and to provide you with the experienced legal representation you need.
Do I Have A Case?
There are many situations in which a person may file a civil rights lawsuit. You may be able to pursue legal action if:
- You have been discriminated against at work because of your age, race, disability, gender identity, national origin, physical or mental disability, religion, sex, sexual orientation or other protected characteristic.
- You have been denied housing for any of the reasons listed above.
- You have suffered due to police brutality, false imprisonment or any injustice by a government body or official.
You may know you have rights, but those rights are of no use if you do not have a voice in the legal system. Our lawyers are here to be that voice, and to make sure you take full advantage of the legal protections afforded to you.
