Olathe Civil Rights Attorney

Protecting You When Police, Employers Or Others Overstep Their Rights

The most important distinction between the United States and numerous other countries around the world are the rights that are afforded to all individuals in the U.S. and the protections we have against government entities abusing those rights.

The right to speak freely, the right to assemble in public forums, to be protected against discrimination based on race, color, sex, religion or natural origin, and the right to be free from unlawful searches or unwarranted government intrusion in our homes are just a few of the protections we have under this country's civil rights laws. Unfortunately, these rights are not always respected. Civil rights abuses occur in work environments, in individuals' homes and in public locations.

If you feel your civil rights have been violated, the Holmes Law Office, LLC, in Olathe, Kansas, is prepared to advocate on your behalf. We seek financial compensation on behalf of our clients in civil rights cases, and we can pursue criminal charges as well if warranted.

Many times, individuals are uncertain whether their civil rights have been violated. That's why we're here. We welcome the opportunity to review the facts involved in your case and provide our assessment whether legal action is warranted.

Our work on all civil rights cases is on a contingency fee basis. We only collect a fee if we are successful obtaining a financial recovery for you, either through a settlement or through a court judgment.
