Since 1791, Americans have been guaranteed certain rights and protections in the first 10 amendments to the Constitution, collectively known as the “Bill of Rights.” In the centuries that followed, even more rights were added by amendment, which form the very foundation for all other liberties you enjoy. When these rights are violated, it’s not only a serious offense, but one that undermines the foundation of what it means to be American. That’s why our attorneys at the Kansas City-based Popham Law Firm are so committed to aggressively defending our clients’ civil rights infractions whenever they occur.
We represent clients whose first, fourth, fifth, sixth, eighth, and fourteenth amendments have been violated by government agents or bodies. Some examples include:
- Police brutality
- False arrest
- False imprisonment
- Wrongful/malicious prosecution
- Prisoner abuse
- Deliberate indifference to medical necessity
- Illegal search and seizure
- Speech suppression
