The Trapani Law Firm believe in the protection of civil liberties and freedoms of all individuals and their families. We aggressively defend the personal rights guaranteed to all citizens under the United States Constitution. By law, your civil rights cannot be infringed upon. However, it is a sad reality that these constitutional rights are sometimes violated. If you believe your rights have been violated, contact a skilled Pennsylvania civil rights lawyer at The Trapani Law Firm. We handle prison suicide lawsuits in Northampton County, Philadelphia County and Lehigh County Pennsylvania.

We represent civil rights violation cases such as:

  • Police Misconduct
  • Prison Misconduct
  • Safety Issues with Mass Transit
  • Excessive Force
  • Prison Suicide
  • First Amendment Violation
  • Sexual Discrimination
  • Physical Disability Discrimination
  • Racial Discrimination and Racial Profiling

The civil rights and fundamental rights of citizens are protected under statutes that have been enacted to protect you and your family. When an employer or institution fails to respect these rights, a person may be entitled to file a lawsuit for the damages caused. These rights are granted to every citizen regardless of age, gender, sex, religious affiliation, sexual orientation, or physical ability.

Access to education, housing, public facilities, transportation, and proper treatment by police, are some the basic benefits that all citizens are entitled to enjoy. Civil rights also refer to civil liberties outlined in the Constitution that include: freedom of speech, freedom of religion, freedom of the press, and freedom of assembly.

Numerous civil rights lawsuits result from discriminations against individuals who are disabled. For that reason, the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) was enacted to protect the civil rights and liberties of individuals, and prohibits discrimination based on disability.

Discrimination accounts for a large number of civil rights lawsuits. However, other types of civil rights infringements exist. Other examples of civil rights violations include police misconduct, improper prison security, and safety issues surrounding government mass transit. Our Allentown civil rights lawyers are here to help review all your legal options anytime.

The civil rights attorneys at The Trapani Law Firm strongly believe in the protection of all citizens and their right to freedom from discrimination and danger. We understand that civil rights violations may cause trauma and emotional distress. That is why we aggressively pursue justice and the protection of your civil liberties.

The civil rights attorneys at The Trapani Law Firm handle cases throughout the entire state of Pennsylvania, with offices located in Allentown, Philadelphia, State College, Pittsburgh, Scranton, and Harrisburg.

When I was injured my life seemed so confusing. While I focused on getting better, Matt Trapani worked on my behalf with the insurance companies and doctors’ offices to solve problems and relieve the stress. Matt walked my family and I through every aspect of what to expect and he’s taken great care of us.

After I was injured in a car accident, I didn’t know where to turn. Matt has been there from the start. He’s always there to explain each step along the way and answer all of my questions to the fullest. Thank you Matt for being there for us.
