Oppenheimer Firm

Chicago’s Nationally Recognized Civil Rights And Criminal Defense Firm

A Renowned Civil Rights Lawyer Representing People From Across The Nation

Civil rights are the bedrock of a fair and just society, safeguarding individual freedoms and ensuring equality under the law. When someone violates your civil rights, it is a serious offense that requires swift and just legal action to hold the violating party accountable for their actions.

At The Oppenheimer Firm, with our home base in Chicago and practice extending nationwide, we are at the forefront of defending these essential rights. Whether you’re facing discrimination, police misconduct, or any other civil rights infringement, we are here to assert your rights and pursue the justice you deserve.

Understanding Civil Rights And How To Defend Them

Your civil rights offer protections covering a wide range of things, including freedom of speech and religion, the right to privacy, and a fair trial. These rights are one of the largest pillars of the U.S. Constitution and are even supported by state laws like the Illinois Human Rights Act and the Illinois Fair Employment Practices Act. We are fluent in these laws and are committed to defending them for our clients.

When your civil rights have been violated in any state, you deserve a civil rights lawyer who not only knows the laws but also is prepared to aggressively fight those who violated your rights.
