We Help You Enforce Your Civil Rights
As a citizen of the United States, you are federally protected from unfair discriminatory action on the part of your government, prospective or present employers, and providers of housing and education. Despite clear progress against discriminatory practices in the 20th century, the reality is that these behaviors still exist in our day-to-day lives, and our civil rights are still violated at times.
Living in a tolerant civil society doesn’t mean tolerating racism, sexism, or other equally harmful acts of discrimination. If you live in Pennsylvania and you’ve been the victim of illegal discriminatory practices, or if you have questions regarding the scope of your guaranteed federal protections against these actions, don’t remain silent; contact a capable Pennsylvania attorney to defend your rights.
At Kalinoski Law Offices P.C., we represent individuals who have been subjected to discrimination based on legally protected characteristics such as age, race, sex, national origin, disability, sexual orientation, and religion. Remember, discrimination can arise in a number of places – including employment, housing, lending, and education. Whatever the setting, you’re entitled to justice. Contact us today to learn more during a free and informative consultation at our Scranton office.
Our firm can represent you in your:
- Police Brutality: Police brutality, also known as police misconduct, is defined by the excessive use of force against another. While we often think of police brutality as gun violence, it is much more than that.
- Wrongful Conviction: Right now, thousands of Pennsylvanians in our prison system have been victimized by wrongful convictions as a result of discriminatory practices and a failure to complete a successful arrest and trial.
- False Arrest: If you are held in custody without probable cause, you may be able to press charges for a false arrest. An office needs to abide by the law, just as much you do.
- Discrimination in Public Accommodation: Under the Americans With Disabilities Act (ADA), you are protected from discrimination in a wide range of places of public accommodation, including facilities that offer lodging, food, entertainment, sales or rental services, health care and other professional services, or recreation.
- Excessive Force: Police officers have a responsibility to use reasonable amounts of force to carry out their restraint or arrest against another.
If you have a civil rights legal question or are in the middle of a police investigation, allow the civil rights attorney Craig Kalinoski to guide you through this trying time.
