The United States Constitution came into existence in 1776, but the American ideals that shaped the contents of the Constitution existed long before then. For this reason, the people of our country enjoy freedoms that most in the world would do anything to have. These freedoms include the freedom to speak freely against the government, freedom of association, and freedom from police brutality and cruel and unusual punishment, amongst other liberties. Unfortunately, like all laws, citizens’ civil rights are violated every so often. When that happens, it is a citizen’s right to pursue a lawsuit to receive damages for wrongs done to them. If you believe that you are the victim of a civil rights violation, schedule a free consultation with the Beverly civil rights lawyers at the Law Office of Mitchell A. Kline to discuss your possible options.
