Protecting Your Civil Rights
At Ives & Flores, P.A., we are dedicated to fighting for the civil rights of our clients. Our team of experienced attorneys has the skills and knowledge to successfully handle civil rights cases at both the federal and state levels.
Civil rights protections are embedded in the New Mexico and United States constitutions, as well as in state and federal laws, such as the federal Civil Rights Act of 1964, the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), and the New Mexico Human Rights Act. These protections are intended to ensure that no one is unfairly discriminated against, to permit freedom of speech and religion, to protect voting rights, and to ensure that individuals are not subject to unlawful restrictions on their liberty or property, or subject to illegal state violence.
At Ives & Flores, P.A., we have the necessary expertise to handle a wide range of civil rights cases, including:
- Police and correctional officer misconduct: If you have been subjected to police or correctional officer misconduct or abuse of power, we can help you hold the responsible parties accountable and seek damages for any harm you have suffered.
- Employment discrimination: If you have been subjected to discrimination or harassment in the workplace because of your race, religion, gender, or any other protected characteristic, we can help you hold your employer accountable and seek damages for any harm you have suffered.
- Public accommodation discrimination: If you have been discriminated against or denied access to a business or a public place or service because of your race, religion, gender, or any other protected characteristic, we can help you fight back and seek damages for any harm you have suffered.
- First Amendment violations: The First Amendment to the U.S. Constitution and similar provisions of the New Mexico Constitution protect our freedom of speech, religion, and assembly. If your rights have been violated by a local, state, or federal government official, our attorneys can help you fight back and defend your rights.
If you believe that your civil rights have been violated, it is important to seek legal help as soon as possible. Our attorneys are dedicated to protecting the rights of individuals and are ready to fight for justice on your behalf.
