Civil Rights Attorneys

Many of our clients face some sort of adverse action by a government agency or official, such as the revocation of a professional license or an order to demolish an allegedly dilapidated building. While governments possess enormous power, it is not unlimited. Administrative agencies have only that power that the law gives them – and no more. And of course, everyone has certain rights under the law. Sometimes, governments can go too far in carrying out their duties, and abuse the rights of citizens. We can help you understand if the actions of a government official cross the line from legitimate enforcement to violations of rights protected under the constitutions of the United States and New York State.
