Civil Rights Violations That Often Occur
There are various types of civil rights violations. Some of the most common involve police misconduct, racial profiling, termination based on age, employment discrimination, and verbal or physical assaults.
Contract disputes happen when at least two parties have a written agreement and one or more parties have a disagreement about what is in the contract. One or both parties may bring legal action to attempt to enforce the terms of the contract.
Domestic abuse is generally directed toward women, usually by the woman’s partner or significant other. Victims of these cases typically seek restraining orders prior to pursing legal action. This way they are safe from the abuser.
Individuals working within the government can be discriminated against in the same way as employees working for private businesses. However, legal disputes are handled differently than in the private sector.
Housing discrimination occurs when property owners refuse to allow people in protected classes to rent or purchase housing. This form of discrimination could be because of one’s race, religion, national origin, familial status or age. Anyone who treats someone unequally in a housing decision is likely in violation of the Fair Housing Act.
Police officers are often protected from lawsuits due to misconduct while on the job. However, victims may still have the right to pursue legal action if they experience excessive police force or violence, are falsely arrested, coerced into a false confession, were illegally searched, or were victims of other abuses of authority.
Property disputes happen over real property or real estate. For instance, when neighbors disagree about the property lines or a property’s boundaries. The local government generally gets involved in these matters.
Discrimination in the workplace can occur as a result of a job applicant’s or employee’s race, religion, gender, sexual orientation, marital status or national origin. The Civil Rights Act of 1964 makes it unlawful for employers to discriminate against their employees based on these characteristics.
Every civil rights case is unique from the next, so it is generally a wise decision that you discuss your claim with a reputable Tucson civil rights lawyer. The attorneys at Phillips Law Group has been giving a legal voice to victims for nearly three decades.
Do Inmates Still Have Rights?
While inmates may lose their right to privacy in prison, they still have civil rights. These rights are protected by the Eighth Amendment of the U.S. Constitution that prohibits excessive bail, excessive fines, or cruel and unusual punishments. A violation of these civil rights could be grounds to file a claim.

Legal Options Available for Civil Rights Victims
If you believe that your civil rights have been violated, you may be unsure about what to do next. Depending on your situation, there may be a few legal options available to you. This could include one of the following:
Informal negotiations usually involve resolving disputes between all parties involved without having to file any paperwork or go through a long court battle. For instance, an employer and its legal representation may come together and draft an agreement detailing that the employer must pay a certain amount to the employee who agrees to give up the right to pursue any further legal action.
If an informal negotiation does not work, the next option is mediation with a skilled mediator. The mediator will work on behalf of all parties involved in an attempt to resolve a civil rights dispute. It is important to note that the mediator does not have the power to force any party to accept a resolution.
Like mediation, arbitration uses a neutral third party called the arbitrator to resolve civil rights disputes between all parties involved. One or more arbitrators have the ability to render an arbitration award, which is legally binding and enforceable in court.
Filing a Lawsuit
If no resolution has been achieved at this point, a lawsuit may be filed in state court against the person or entity who caused you harm. However, the claim may need to be filed in another court if the claim exceeds the state court’s limitations.

Thank you Phillips Law Group for all the support and back to school assistance we appreciate it.
I was recently served court documents that I was being sued from an accident that happened years ago. For someone who has never been through something like this and not familiar with the court lingo or where to even begin, it was very frustrating and stressful. I reached out to a family member who knew Tracy Laskos and the great reputation of Phillips Law Group and within the hours of the initial call for help, I had a direct number to Lead Attorney Nassar. Nassar heard my case and almost instantly put me at ease by explaining the process and how easy it was to handle. Nassar spoke to me like he was a friend, not like I was a client. I am so grateful to Tracy, Nasar and of course my cousin Stephanie for helping out and giving me the direction that I needed to get through this situation. I plan on referring my friends, family and patients that are in need of a personal injury Attorney to Phillips Law Group. Thank you!!
Sophia H is very helpful.
It’s an Honor and a Privilege to work for a company that cares about its employees and clients for 12 years. I’ve seen Management go out of their way to help someone whether it’s a personal matter or work related. I am also reminded of many occasions where a Client needed urgent help and we as a Team were able to get the person immediate assistance. At Phillips Law we make that happen through Teamwork and a dedication to our profession. I’ve had numerous jobs in several other fields, those were just jobs. This is a home. Many of us have been here for quite a few years, it feels like one large extended family.
Kathy Hudson and Donato Giovanatto. Continues to go above and beyond the call of duty. Reaching out to the insurance company about the damage to the vehicle. Forcing them to take responsibility.
Jasmine Delgado is an amazing paralegal. She was patient, kind and extremely knowledgeable. Highly recommend Phillips law group
I’ve been working at Phillips Law Group for nearly four years and I can confidently say this is the best personal injury firm in Arizona to work for. The firm is the best for numerous reasons but to start, Phillips Law Group gives employees opportunities for promotions and growth. I started working within the settlement department, moved to a paralegal assistant and grew to be a pre-litigation paralegal with my own case load. Each attorney I have worked for is extremely knowledgeable, friendly, and easy to talk to. Secondly, I love how Phillips Law shows appreciation for employees. They host Friday Zoom Huddles giving out PTO, goodie bags, special shout outs, bonuses and gift cards. They also host extravagant holiday parties and fun contests during the Holidays! Lastly, the firm cares about giving back to the community, which is a trait I value as well. It’s rewarding to see a fast paced firm taking time out of their busy day to pay it forward. I would highly recommend working at Phillips Law Group!
Phillips Law Group does so much for the community!!! I especially enjoy seeing Juan Roque out there. This gentle giant always has a smile on his face and is a part of a caring and giving team.
I have been with Phillips Law Group for a little over a year and I have learned what teamwork and family in a workplace looks like. There is always someone around to lend a helping hand, which is something I appreciate and cherish. I feel a sense of joy coming to work every day because of my co-workers as well as being able to help people in what can be a scary and stressful situation. I currently work as a Litigation Legal Assistant with an amazing team. When I started here, I was not very knowledgeable in personal injury. I was lucky to have been placed with an amazing team who was willing to take time to teach and pass on some great skills that have been a huge aid in helping me be successful in my position. I would recommend working here at Phillips Law Group, because they care about their employees and there is so much room for growth.
The lawyers here are of top quality. Especially Trey Dayes, who was always respectful and hard-working.
