Civil Rights Lawyer in Sterling Heights, Michigan:

Fighting for Justice

At Marko Law, we are dedicated to safeguarding civil rights and fighting against discrimination. Every citizen deserves to be treated fairly and equally, regardless of race, ethnicity, or any other factor. While most police officers uphold their duty with integrity, there are instances where civil rights violations occur, undermining public trust in the policing system. We stand firm in holding law enforcement accountable for unlawful arrests, apprehensions, and other violations, sending a clear message that discriminatory actions will not be tolerated.

Protecting Your Rights with an Experienced Michigan False Arrest Attorney

With a track record of winning numerous jury trials and securing millions for our clients, Marko Law is recognized as one of Michigan's leading civil rights firms. We specialize in civil rights legislation and proudly represent individual clients as well as groups in class action lawsuits for those whose civil rights have been violated.

The U.S. Constitution guarantees specific civil rights and individual freedoms to every American citizen. Defending these rights in court can be complex and challenging. Our lawyers are proven experts in this field, with decades of experience successfully advocating for the civil rights of our clients.

Determining if You Have a Wrongful or Unlawful Arrest Case

When alleging an unlawful arrest, it is crucial to demonstrate that the police officer exceeded their authority in one of the following ways:

  1. Arrest Without Cause: A common claim in false arrest cases is a violation of your Fourth Amendment rights, which protect against unreasonable search and seizure. For an officer to arrest you, they must have a warrant or witness you committing a misdemeanor or felony offense. If we can establish that an officer lacked reasonable grounds to believe you had committed a crime, they are guilty of arresting you without probable cause.
  2. Excessive Force: If a police officer inflicts serious harm during your arrest, they have used excessive force. This charge is not dependent on their reason for apprehending you. Even if there was a valid cause for your detention, they are not justified in using any level of force.

At Marko Law, we possess a comprehensive understanding of what constitutes probable cause, reasonable force, and other critical factors in unlawful arrest cases.

Handling a Wide Range of Civil Rights Actions

Our firm has extensive experience in handling various civil rights actions, including:

  • Unlawful arrest and/or wrongful conviction
  • Law enforcement misconduct and brutality
  • Unlawful search and seizures
  • Unconstitutional prison conditions
  • Hate crimes
  • Whistleblower rights and protection
  • Freedom of speech and association violations
  • Voter discrimination and unlawful election practices

If you believe your civil rights have been violated, we will thoroughly investigate your claim and skillfully advocate or litigate to defend and preserve your rights.

Combatting Discrimination: Unlawful Detention Based on Race

While equality under the law is a fundamental principle, racial factors often come into play in the arrest, detention, and prosecution of citizens. At Marko Law, we pay close attention to racial discrimination claims. We carefully examine the circumstances of your detention, as well as the officer's history and past actions. If we uncover evidence of discrimination, we will relentlessly pursue accountability for the involved police officer.
