New York Civil Rights Lawyers

We Have a Different Take on Civil Rights

The Constitution guarantees you certain inalienable rights. The legal system is designed to give you recourse when these civil liberties are violated. Yet maneuvering through the agencies and courts can leave you feeling violated a second time unless you have the clear guidance of experienced civil rights attorneys.

The New York law firm of Maduegbuna Cooper LLP seeks to uphold the U.S. Constitution for all individuals across society. Our dedicated human rights lawyers assist clients with such complex cases as:

  • Police brutality
  • False arrest
  • Retaliatory arrest
  • Malicious prosecution
  • Activists’ rights
  • Inmates’ rights

Equal Protection Clause of the U.S. Constitution

The government is supposed to work for the people — providing legislation, law enforcement and access to court systems that protect individuals and keep communities safe. The Equal Protection Clause of the 14th Amendment requires state and federal actors to treat all individuals as equal under the law and forms the foundation of your civil rights guarantees. You retain these rights under the First Amendment even if you say something critical of the government or engage in an act of civil disobedience. You are also granted crucial rights if you are accused of a crime, arrested or imprisoned.

We challenge the government, the police, the prosecution and judges. No entity is too powerful and no individual is insignificant under the Constitution, and all people are important in the law office of Maduegbuna Cooper LLP.
