What type of Federal Law do we cover?
The Constitution of the United States limits governmental powers so as to safeguard the inalienable rights of citizens. When local, state or federal agencies overextend and reach beyond those limits, those affected have privileges by law to protect themselves. The laws associated with Civil Rights protect those rights as written and guaranteed by the Bill of Rights and the 13th and 14th Amendments to the Constitution. A Maceau Law civil rights attorney is professional and knowledgeable in understanding the complications, facts, details and circumstances that arise in a civil rights case.
A crime that violates federal law is a federal crime. Because federal crimes are investigated and prosecuted by federal agencies, they usually come with strong penalties and court-ordered actions like prison terms, large fines and restitution’s. Federal crimes are considered markedly severe and are typically prosecuted very aggressively.
Many people suspect employment violations are occurring, but do not have the legal knowledge necessary to pursue a claim.
