Civil Rights Attorneys in Michigan

Protecting Basic Legal Rights Nationwide with Integrity & Dedication

Like all Americans, Michigan residents are entitled to certain civil and human rights, and they have the right to pursue compensation when those rights are violated. Unfortunately, entities committing human rights violations are often large government agencies, corporations, and other organizations with power and resources on their side. In order to stand up for your civil and human rights, you will need a compassionate attorney with experience in this complex legal field.

Michigan Civil Rights Laws

Michigan was the first state in the nation to include civil rights protection in its constitution in 1964. The Michigan Department of Civil Rights (MDCR) has one of the most important jobs in the government because it is called to "investigate alleged discrimination and to secure the equal protection of civil rights."

Our civil rights attorneys in Michigan have a thorough knowledge of the statutes and rules laid out by the MDCR and are dedicated to pursuing justice on your behalf. We can thoroughly research your case, enforce civil rights laws, and prevent discrimination based on the laws clearly laid out by the Michigan Department of Civil Rights. The Oliver Law Group, P.C. gets results by focusing on your needs.

How Do I Know if My Civil Rights Have Been Violated?

Civil rights are rights that guarantee a person's ability to freely participate in everyday life and politics. Government agencies and private organizations are prohibited by law from infringing upon your civil rights.

According to the MCDR, the statute of limitations for civil rights in Michigan requires that the alleged discrimination must have taken place within 180 days from the time of a claim, and it must be based on the following:

  • Religion
  • Race
  • Color
  • National origin
  • Arrest record
  • Genetic information
  • Sex, age, height, or weight
  • Marital status
  • Disability

    If you believe your civil rights have been violated, a competent civil rights attorney in Michigan can build you a case and fight for justice. Oliver Law Group P.C. offers free consultations during which we will listen to you and help you determine the best course of action.
