Civil Rights


Police Misconduct and Employment Discrimination

The Shaw Law Group thrives on representing people against powerful people and agencies in order to force them to take full accountability for a violation of your civil rights. Civil rights are foundational to a free society. These are basic human rights that guarantee equal social opportunities and equal protection under the law – regardless of your race, gender, national origin, color of your skin, religion, or other personal characteristics. The United States Constitution guarantees certain civil rights and liberties and the law provides important remedies when those rights are violated.

The Shaw Law Group will fight for your rights if you are a victim of Police Misconduct or Discrimination by your Employer. We will force accountability for violations of your civil rights and seek compensation for your injuries.

America has come a long way since our founding in the area of civil rights, but we still have a ways to go. Far too many of our citizens continue to have their legal rights violated, and this often happens to those who are most vulnerable among us. 

If you or someone close to you has been denied their rights by the actions of police officers or based on being part of a protected class, this is a violation of the law, and there are legal remedies available.

We understand this, and we have dedicated our careers to standing up for those who may have a hard time standing up for themselves. We are seasoned trial lawyers with a strong track record of success, both in state and federal court. We are tireless advocates for our clients, and will fight hard to obtain justice on your behalf. We look forward to being in your corner.
