Northeast Pennsylvania Government Civil Rights Violation Lawyer

A Legal Path to Defending Your Civil Rights

Civil rights laws extend broadly to protect individuals and businesses from institutional and governmental abuse. In short, a government body is not allowed to act in an arbitrary or capricious way that infringes upon the rights of citizens. Due process is required. Whether the offending action is retaliatory, discriminatory, arbitrary or simply due to negligence, as a protected individual or organization you can hold people in positions of power accountable.

At the law office of Wright & Reihner P.C. we help individuals and businesses in Scranton, Wilkes-Barre and across northeastern Pennsylvania protect their rights. Our attorneys have a proven history based on decades of combined experience in civil litigation and plaintiff's actions. We put dependable resources and a client-focused approach behind every case, and we can help you defend against civil rights violations.

When Government Abuses Its Authority

From federal agents to local municipalities, government authorities are kept in check by constitutional mandates and civil rights laws, such as section 1983 of the U.S. Code. These laws are designed to protect the rights of citizens and businesses. When those entities or the people involved in government reach beyond the legal bounds of their office and commit civil rights violations, you have recourse against them.

Our lawyers represent people and businesses in the broad areas of civil rights claims, such as those involving:

  • Excessive force or false arrest
  • Corruption
  • Abuse of power
  • Discrimination
  • Unreasonable search and seizure
  • Denial of due process
  • Retaliation

We offer the experience of tested professionals that have taken on complex litigation in a variety of fields and have the resources to defend the civil rights of clients against governmental violations. Our office provides able representation designed to build client-focused, custom solutions for our clients.
