Constitutional/Civil Rights Litigation
The United States Constitution is the supreme law of this country and for all who dwell and travel within. All too often, the Constitutional rights of individuals are violated by the government at all levels. HoganWillig prides itself as having one of the most active and effective litigation teams to sue law enforcement officers at the local, county, state and federal levels when their conduct violates Constitutional rights. We also prosecute and defend government agencies and personnel at all levels regarding civil rights claims. Our seasoned trial team is well versed in 42 U.S. 1983, as well as NYSHRL 296 in addition to the common law causes of action under Bivens. Further, issues such as employment discrimination, hostile work environment, and wrongful discharge are aggressively handled by our Constitutional/civil rights litigation group.
