The law protects individuals from authority figures depriving them of their Constitutional rights. For example a federal statute, 42 U.S.C. Section 1983 allows someone who has been deprived of their Constitutional rights to bring a claim against the persons responsible. If successful in proving the claim, the law also allows for the recovery of attorney fees, so those who cannot otherwise afford to hire a lawyer, may still bring legal claims.
Examples of types of cases the legal team at Hardee, Martin, Donahoe & Owens handles are
- use of excessive force by police;
- unlawful search and seizure; and
- cruel and unusual punishment claims.
