New Jersey Civil Rights Attorneys
Fighting Hard To Uphold Your Rights
State and federal laws are in place to ensure that every person in this country is treated fairly. Although these statutes exist, that doesn't mean individuals, companies, or other institutions don't break them and cause harm. If you suffered damages because of a civil rights violation, you might be able to initiate a claim against the responsible party. Taking legal action not only allows you to recover compensation for the losses and expenses you sustained, but it also holds the responsible party liable and lets them know that their unlawful actions will not be tolerated. Although monetary recovery can't completely erase the suffering you went through, it can help relieve some of the financial stresses associated with your experience.
At Bendit Weinstock, P.A., our team is dedicated to helping you pursue justice in a case where your civil rights have been violated. Backed by over 60 years of legal experience, we have a solid understanding of the law and the complexities involved in handling these types of matters. We are truly committed to protecting your rights, and we will be meticulous in our review of your situation to collect evidence and build a legal strategy to hold the perpetrator responsible.

What Are Civil Rights Violations?
Because there are many laws in place to protect citizens from harm, there are also various types of misconduct that could be considered civil rights violations. When a person is treated differently or denied equal lawful protections, a claim could be made that their rights have been violated.
Injustices committed against others could include:
- Wrongful terminations
- Unlawful retaliation
- Sexual harassment
- Unreasonable searches and seizures
- Discrimination based on perceived status in a protected class
One of the ways in which violations such as those listed above can be stopped is by taking legal action. By pursuing a civil rights claim, you can fight back against the violator and prevent them from engaging in similar conduct in the future. At Bendit Weinstock, P.A., we will be focused on upholding your lawful protections at both the state and federal level. We will do that by providing compassionate representation yet fighting aggressively throughout negotiations or in court to work toward recovering the compensation you deserve.
Who Commits Civil Rights Violations?
When people hear "civil rights violations," they might think about stories they see on the news regarding law enforcement officers using excessive force against an alleged criminal. Although that is one type of violation, many different people and entities could be involved in these types of cases.
Civil rights violation perpetrators could include, but are not limited to:
- Government representatives
- Housing authorities
When taking legal action for a civil rights violation, it's necessary to bring the claim against the correct party. While the liable entity may seem clear in some cases, in others, it could be challenging to identify the right perpetrator. Our New Jersey civil rights lawyers are here to help you successfully file your claim and hold the correct person or entity responsible.
