Every individual in the United States has certain basic rights that must be respected by the state and federal governments and their respective employees. These rights are guaranteed by the U.S. Constitution, the Civil Rights Act and many other critically important statutory laws. Unfortunately, all too often, publicly elected officials and employees of the state and federal governments violate these rights. When an individual’s civil rights are violated, the victim is well advised to hire an attorney and to help him/her stand up for what is right.
At the Civil Rights Defense Firm, P.C., Chief Counsel Joshua Prince has defended and protected the civil rights of people from all walks of life – from those who were charged with alleged criminal acts and found innocent to those who were the victims of prison abuse. Joshua also has experience litigation class action lawsuits relating to violations of statutory rights, such as disclosure of confidential license to carry firearms applicant information. In fact, in a case against the City of Philadelphia, Joshua was successful in obtaining a $1.5 million dollar settlement for those who were aggrieved.

Pursuit of Justice
Frequently, prospective clients feel that no one in “the system” cares about them. While the system can be cold and uncaring, our Pennsylvania civil rights attorneys care deeply about all of those that we represent. We pursue compensation and a sense of justice for those abused by overzealous law enforcement officers and other government actors. We handle civil rights cases related to:
- Police brutality and excessive force
- Unlawful search and seizure
- Police shootings
- Prosecutorial misconduct
- Discrimination/racial profiling
But our representation does not end there. As mentioned above, we also handle all statutory causes of action relating to civil rights deprivations. If your confidential firearm or license to carry firearms information has been disclosed, we have experience vindicating your rights and making those responsible pay for your damages.
If you would like more information regarding our representation of you in relation to a civil rights deprivation, please schedule a free consultation at 610-879-2361 or send us an email.
