Michigan False Arrest Lawyer Protects Your Rights
While in theory, all Michiganders are equal under the law, in practice, police and other law enforcement officials frequently make race a factor in arresting, detaining and prosecuting citizens. Pitt McGehee Palmer & Rivers pays close attention to civil rights and discrimination cases in Ann Arbor MI and throughout Michigan. We recognize and oppose the many different forms that discrimination can take. The U.S. Civil Rights Acts and the Michigan Elliott-Larsen Civil Rights Act protect workers from these and a range of other discriminatory acts and conditions. We examine not only the specific circumstances of your detention, but also the officer's history and past actions. If we find evidence of discrimination, we will do everything in our power to hold accountable the officer in question.
Experience Covering A Wide Range Of Civil Rights and Discrimination
If you experience discrimination based on race, nationality or religious beliefs (if any), your first step should be to gather all the evidence you can of bias. You may choose to complain about it directly to your employer; if so, pay attention to how they react and document any signs of retaliation. We'll work with you to protect your rights and ensure that you are compensated for any financial or emotional damages suffered as a result of your civil rights violation.
