What does it mean to be a civil rights law firm?

Loevy + Loevy specializes in civil rights and public interest cases, particularly those involving wrongful convictions, police misconduct, prisoners’ rights, whistleblower protection, and other infringements on individual freedoms. When one of these rights is violated, civil rights attorneys like Loevy + Loevy take legal action to stop the harm and remedy the situation.

Your civil rights guarantee your freedom and protect you from interference by the government and other private individuals and organizations. Civil rights include the right to due process, to a fair trial, to freedom from police harassment and brutality, to fair treatment in jail and prison, to freely speak and assemble, to protest, to privacy, to reproductive freedom, to bodily autonomy, to self-determination, to love who you choose, and to equal protection of the law, among many other things.
