Tulsa Civil Rights Attorneys

David Mitchell Garrett, Jr.s
great-great-grandfather helped write the Oklahoma
constitution, and ever since, the Garrett family
has been committed to protecting the civil rights
of the states citizens. A civil rights violation
occurs when a person acting under color and
authority of state law deprives a citizen of
rights secured by the Constitution or the laws of
the United States. Civil rights encompass a broad
and often misunderstood area of the law that
affects people more than they might realize in
their everyday lives.

An encounter with any law enforcement, whether
a police officer, corrections officer, jail
official or employee of a private company
performing traditional government functions, can
result in a civil rights violation. Garrett Law
Center is one of the leading civil rights firms
in the state, and our Tulsa civil rights
attorneys have handled cases involving police
misconduct and prison litigation, defending the
rights and lives of those whose civil rights have
been endangered.

Police Misconduct The people of Oklahoma trust
police officers to serve and protect them. For
the most part, they do enforce the laws of the
state correctly and benefit society. However,
there are instances where police officers commit
acts of misconduct and violate constitutional
rights. The more common examples are use of
excessive force, false charges to cover up bad
arrests, extreme use of physical or verbal
threats during interrogation, false imprisonment,
coercion of women into sexual acts, and a refusal
to testify against a fellow officer charged with
police misconduct.

These acts can also tie in to our Personal
Injury practice when police misconduct results in
bodily injury, as well as our Criminal Defense
practice when police misconduct occurs as a part
of your arrest. While most police officers do
their job correctly and protect the people of
Oklahoma, there are situations where power can be
abused and civil rights violated as a result.
People who have their civil rights violated may
feel afraid to speak up, as government and police
officials can often seem intimidating. The Tulsa
civil rights lawyers at Garrett Law Center have
proven capable of successfully standing up for
the rights of the people of Oklahoma and can help
if your civil rights have been violated by the
people you trust to protect you. - See more at

Prison Jail Litigation While people are sent
to correctional facilities as a result of
wrongdoing, they are still entitled to protection
of certain civil rights. A frequent example
involves prison suicide. If an inmate has
threatened suicide and the jail personnel are
aware of it, they must take steps to prevent an
inmate from a subsequent attempt. Also, if an
inmate has a serious need requiring medical
attention, prison personnel must not delay in
administering help.

Inmates also have civil rights that are
violated in the event of prison rape or
inmate-on-inmate violence. Civil rights lawyers
handling suicide or wrongful death cases need to
be well-versed in both medical and legal
standards, as well as Personal Injury law. A
Tulsa civil rights attorney at Garrett Law Center
will be experienced in developing facts regarding
death or a violent act and establishing the level
of care that should have been implemented. Going
to prison does not mean all of your rights are
taken away, and Garrett Law Center has proven
capable of helping inmates who have been wronged
by law enforcement.

Help is Available for Civil Rights Violations
Police and prison official misconduct can not
only result in serious physical injury, but also
a loss of trust in our law enforcement process
that cannot be easily rectified. Fortunately,
federal law allows victims of a civil rights
violation to file a lawsuit for money damages and
injunctive relief (stopping the misconduct). If
you believe your civil rights have been violated
by law enforcement, do not let their authority
intimidate you. When you hire a Tulsa civil
rights lawyer at Garrett Law Center, you can be
sure they will aggressively fight for the
compensation you deserve as well as your peace of
mind.
