Civil Rights Law

We all have rights, and yours are important. Attorney Mark Hefter is dedicated to holding public servants accountable for abuses of authority that cause injuries and other harm to private citizens. Federal civil rights laws protect people against abusive conduct at the hands of government officials and entities – whether at the federal, state, or local level.

If a police officer or other public servant has mistreated you, or caused substantial or catastrophic injuries, you may be entitled to compensation. If the violation of constitutional rights is severe and the injuries are significant, the case may also be a candidate for a federal civil rights claim.

City or county governments may also be held liable for the actions of employees, as well as the actions of the government as a whole if those actions violate people’s civil rights. Mark Hefter can help you decipher these complex cases and help you get the fair treatment you deserve.

Thank you for your assistance in my daughter’s wrongful death suit. I was very pleased with the outcome and the way you all made sure everything would be taken care of for the girls and myself. We appreciate your knowledge and experience and we know that anytime we might have a problem with personal injury, we will have the best representation there is.
