CIVIL RIGHTS LITIGATION

Monmouth County Civil Rights attorneys

​

The skilled lawyers at Shebell & Shebell have extensive experience prosecuting civil cases arising under 42 U.S.C. 1983, commonly referred to as Section 1983 claims. Some common examples of Section 1983 claims include:

​

Police misconduct claims: Police misconduct claims may relate to the use of excessive force, the use of restraints leading to in-custody injury or death, police pursuits, and the use of deadly force, among other actions.

​

Freedom of Speech: Only certain forms 

of speech are protected by the First Amendment. For example, employees who have been fired, disciplined, harassed or subject to any other adverse employment action for speaking about a matter of public concern may have a viable claim.

​

Equal Protection claims: The Constitution provides for equal protection under the law. This means that the federal, state and local government cannot discriminate against you on the basis of your race, color or gender and other protected classes.

​

Due Process claims: In some situations, 

the government cannot take a person’s life, liberty or property without notice, a hearing, and a decision by an impartial judge. For example, government employees who have been fired, demoted, suspended without pay or subject to discipline, are entitled to certain protections before the government proceeds with any adverse employment action.

​

Freedom of Religion: Citizens of the United States are guaranteed the right to freedom of religion. Thus, the government 

is restricted in the extent to which it can prohibit religious expression and practices in the workplace. In the State of New Jersey, employers (both public and private) are prohibited from discriminating against employees on the basis of their religious beliefs. At Shebell & Shebell, we have a history of obtaining positive outcomes for clients in claims under Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. Title VII is a federal law that prohibits employers from discriminating against employees on the basis of sex, race, color, national origin, religion and other protected classes, added later. Such claims can only be brought against employers with 15 or more employees, including federal, state, and local governments. Title VII also applies to institutes of higher education, employment agencies, and labor organizations. The civil rights lawyers at Shebell & Shebell also represent victims of sexual harassment, and have experience bringing claims under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and the Age Discrimination in Employment Act (ADEA).

​

Prison conditions: Prisons have an obligation to treat their inmates with a level of care and humanity. If you or a loved one have been treated inhumanely in the prison system, talk to our civil rights attorneys.

​

Contact our Monmouth County Civil Rights Attorneys At Shebell & Shebell, we believe that victims can deter unlawful discrimination by standing up for their civil rights.

We believe that everyone deserves to be treated with dignity and respect. If you think your constitutional rights may have been violated, speak to an experienced New Jersey civil rights attorney, contact us today.
