Your Civil Rights Attorney

Russell A. Woodard, Jr. and the RAWLaw team take pride in their relentless pursuit of civil rights cases. When the people and organizations you trust to uphold your personal freedoms not only fail to do so but also directly violate them, Russell understands the helplessness you may feel in seeking justice on your own. He uses his legal expertise, in-depth experience, and compassionate approach to provide each client with the individual attention they deserve, and he gets to know the details of each case to ensure that he can build a strong case to help you achieve results.

Types of Civil Rights Cases

Because civil rights lawsuits often involve financial hardship such as injury or loss of wages, clients who pursue these cases in a court of law may be able to request monetary awards. Additionally, they may hold the offending party legally responsible for their actions. RAWLaw can represent you in many types of civil rights cases.

  • First Amendment: Your freedom of speech is a foundational right protected by the First Amendment to the United States Constitution. This amendment also encompasses the freedom of religion, press, and assembly, as well as your right to petition the government. If an individual, employer, or representative or agency of a local, state, or federal government inhibited your First Amendment rights, you may be eligible for a First Amendment civil rights case.
  • Wrongful Discrimination: Despite societal advances, discrimination based on age, race, gender, and disability are unfortunately all too prevalent. If you suspect that you've been denied a job, fired, treated unfairly by law enforcement, or discriminated against in any way based on these or other identifying factors, we can help you seek legal accountability.
  • Excessive Force: Section 1983 of Title 42 of the United States Code holds that law enforcement officers who demonstrate the use of excessive force in their interactions with civilians are subject to legal repercussions. If you were treated aggressively by a police officer, we can help you determine if you have a Section 1983 case.
