How Can a Civil Rights Attorney Help You?

by Kevin Smith Author

When you experience a civil rights violation or damages to your rights and reputation, a civil rights attorney in Marietta can help you in many ways. These firms can help you through litigation, advocacy and research to convey the facts and the law in your case to a court or to lawmakers. To find a firm, determine which ones in your area provide these services and set up an initial consultation.


Litigation is probably one of the most visual parts of an attorney’s job in most practice areas. In the field of civil rights, this will mean filing a lawsuit against those who have damaged your personal reputation or infringed your rights. For instance, if you were denied a job on the basis of your disability status, race or gender, then a civil rights lawyer would help you file a lawsuit against the company. Some discrimination laws will vary be area, but an attorney can tell you whether you have a case during a consultation.


Unfortunately, some areas of civil rights laws are more defined and inclusive than others. For instance, there may be areas of law in your area which are not as inclusive of disabled people as they should be. When you are trying to advocate for those things, it is a good idea to contact a civil rights attorney in Marietta for help. These lawyers can help you form advocacy groups and act within the legal system for those changes. Consulting with a civil rights firm can help get you started.


Research is a bigger part of the law process than you might think. When it comes to civil rights cases, research can tell you what past case decisions have been made in similar cases to show you how likely you are to get a favorable outcome. Research can tell you the best approach to take with the case and it can also tell you about the relevant history of those involved in the case. For instance, you can look into the hiring practices of a company and see if it has a history of discrimination which can help prove your case.

During your initial consultation with a civil rights attorney in Marietta, you can ask how these three areas will work in your specific case. There will probably be litigation and some advocacy, all backed up with plenty of research. Knowing how each of these things impact your cause and your case can help you find the right attorney or the right firm to help.
