Civil & Human Rights Attorneys

Protecting Basic Legal Rights Nationwide with Integrity & Dedication

All Americans are entitled to certain civil and human rights, and they have the right to pursue compensation when those rights are violated. Unfortunately, entities committing human rights violations are often large government agencies, corporations, and other organizations with power and resources on their side. In order to stand up for your civil and human rights, you will need a compassionate attorney with experience in this complex legal field.

Civil Rights Laws

Michigan was the first state in the nation to include civil rights protections in its constitution in 1964. The Michigan Department of Civil Rights (MDCR) has one of the most important jobs in the government because it is called to "investigate alleged discrimination and to secure the equal protection of civil rights."

Our civil rights attorneys have a thorough knowledge of the statutes and rules laid out by the MDCR and are dedicated to pursuing justice on your behalf. We can thoroughly research your case, enforce civil rights laws, and prevent discrimination based on the laws clearly laid out by the Michigan Department of Civil Rights. The Oliver Bell Group gets results by focusing on your needs.

Claims generally are based upon discrimination including the following:

Civil rights are rights that guarantee a person's ability to freely participate in everyday life and politics. Government agencies and private organizations are prohibited by law from infringing upon your civil rights.

According to the MCDR, the statute of limitations for civil rights requires that the alleged discrimination must have taken place within 180 days from the time of a claim, and it must be based on the following:

  • Religion

  • Race

  • Color

  • National origin

  • Arrest record

  • Genetic information

  • Sex, age, height, or weight

  • Gender Identity 

  • Sexual Orientation

  • Marital status

  • Disability

Human Rights Cases in Michigan

The Oliver Bell Group does handle cases involving violations of human rights, which are the general moral principles that inherently apply to all human beings regardless of nation, location, language, religion, or another status. These rights are protected by federal and international law. For instance, a human rights case might involve protecting the rights of refugees fleeing persecution in their home countries to seek asylum in the United States. Human rights law also includes cases dealing with slavery, human trafficking, and poverty.

Fighting for Civil & Human Rights

Whether you've been a victim of discrimination, sexual harassment, police misconduct, or vote suppression, you need to act quickly. Proving a civil rights violation often requires extensive research that should be started while the facts are still fresh in people's minds.
