Overview

One of the most egregious and incendiary kind of lawsuit involves allegations of civil rights violations. Civil rights suits, often brought against municipalities and police departments, are frequently laced with political overtones and typically garner increased media attention. These cases require focused defense attorneys who can get the job done, even when they’re under a microscope.

Traub Lieberman attorneys do just that.

Traub Lieberman represents cities, counties and even state governments when allegations of civil rights abuse are made, and when violations of the Americans with Disabilities Act and the Fair Housing Act are alleged. Traub Lieberman defends police departments in a variety of civil rights cases, including claims of false arrest, battery, and excessive force. Our attorneys are also called upon when criminals allege violations of their civil rights during incarceration in local and state prisons.
