Civil Rights

Civil Rights are legal guarantees against discrimination or unlawful or unwarranted government action.

At Karp & Weiss, we are proud of our record of providing representation to those whose who have been victimized by police or government misconduct. Our attorneys have represented clients in state and federal courts throughout the United States.

Some examples of our work in this area:
A man was jailed on a civil contempt citation related to a divorce proceeding. Despite having legal representation, he languished in jail for two years. His family finally retained Karp & Weiss hoping that there might be a way to gain his release. Karp & Weiss attorneys were able to have the contempt purged. The man was released in time to spend the holidays with his family.

One civil rights case litigated by Karp & Weiss was in the courts for seven years through numerous appeals by the defense. By being persistent, Karp & Weiss eventually recovered a substantial settlement for our client by winning the final appeal.
