What Are Your Civil Rights?
The Fourth Amendment
The First Amendment
Guarantees freedom of speech and provides protection against retaliation. This is especially applicable to whistleblower cases—also known as a qui tam lawsuit.
The Civil Rights Act of 1964
Prohibits federal and state governments and employers from discrimination based on race, color, religion, sex or national origin. This is often referenced in employment law cases.

You are not alone. We have represented more victims of police shootings than any other firm in Chicago, and no firm’s track record can compare with ours. We have garnered a national reputation of securing the highest possible settlements for our clients.
In recent years, no law firm in Chicago has been more successful in litigating police brutality and police misconduct cases than Loevy + Loevy.

Police officers are supposed to enforce our laws in order to protect the innocent and keep our streets safe. Unfortunately, they can be just as susceptible to making mistakes as any other citizens. If you have been unlawfully arrested or falsely accused, you cannot afford to be without a experienced civil rights attorney.
The Fourth Amendment of the United States Constitution protects citizens against unlawful searches and seizures as well as police brutality. If your home, car, or other property has been illegally searched and you are facing a charge based on evidence gathered in that search, you need an experienced civil rights trial lawyer on your side.
