Under both Florida law and federal law, many of our civil rights are now specifically protected, and violations of those rights can result in a suit to recoup your damages incurred and for the actual violation of your civil rights. Civil rights violation claims include many different areas of the law, but Mr. Smith’s representation of individuals in civil rights matters is limited to false arrest claims (under Florida law and under 42 USC Sec. 1983), excessive force claims (under Florida law and under 42 USC Sec. 1983), false imprisonment claims (under Florida law and under 42 USC Sec. 1983), malicious prosecution claims (under Florida law and under 42 USC Sec. 1983), school civil rights matters, Whistle Blower Claims (under Florida law), and Family Medical Leave Act (FMLA) claims.
If you or a loved one has had your civil rights violated, it is vital to contact a civil rights attorney immediately to preserve your rights and to determine your legal options. Attorney Chuck Smith in Orlando has handled civil rights cases for 20 years and has litigated and tried such cases in State and Federal Court. Providing attentive and personalized representation, he is experienced in both negotiations and litigation, and if you retain C.W. Smith Law, P.A., your legal matters and concerns will be handled by Mr. Smith himself.
