American citizens are given rights under the U.S. Constitution and Bill of Rights, specifically with regards to one’s civil rights. You have the right to speak freely, walk about freely without fear of discrimination, and officers must have reasonable, probable cause to arrest someone for an offense.
We have found that many police officers are not aware of the laws, including the rights of citizens. Some officers waive their authority as the law, making attempts to arrest without proper justification. Discrimination might also play a role in an officer’s decision to arrest. Whatever the case may be, if you believe your rights were violated, you need an attorney to stand up for you.
Civil rights violations are taken very seriously in the state of Oklahoma. You may not be aware that someone has wronged you, but that is why our Sapulpa civil rights lawyers are here to keep you informed. The laws were established specifically to protect you from mistreatment, oppression, and harm, from a government or law enforcement official. Unfortunately, when abuse occurs, it requires an attorney who is prepared to stand up for you.
One of our founding attorneys, James Watzke, has formerly worked as a police officer. He understands the inner workings of the police force, as well as the law, which can provide immense benefits to your particular case. Our firm is here to provide you with relentless, hard-hitting representation to combat any opponent, whether or not your case is heard at trial.
As Sapulpa civil rights attorneys, we believe in fierce, loyal advocacy. When your rights have been violated, it is not only an offense to your freedom, but also undermines your integrity. Do not suffer in silence! If you have been wronged by anyone in a position of authority, take control of the situation now.
