Lexington Civil Rights Attorney

TThe protection of our civil rights is one of the most important guarantees we have as citizens of the United States. No state may deprive any citizen of their Constitutionally guaranteed civil rights, and 42 U.S.C. §1983 authorizes a civil action to be brought against any state actor who does so. For criminal matters, no law enforcement official can search, detain or arrest someone without probable cause. Additionally, they are forbidden from using excessive force. This may include the use of Tasers, dogs, violence or chemicals, or shootings.

If you believe that your civil rights may have been compromised, it is important to reach out to an attorney who can help you obtain the justice and accountability you deserve.

At Bennett Law Group & Associates, in Lexington,, Kentucky, we have extensive experience working on civil rights cases, including:

  • Freedom of speech
  • Freedom of assembly
  • Freedom of religion
  • Student rights
  • Employee issues (e.g., wrongful discharge in violation of First Amendment rights; EEOC discrimination matters)

Attorney Robin Bennett was chief counsel in the infamous "Tattoo Suit" which challenged recent controversial changes to Army Regulation 670-1.

We want to point out that the above list is by no means comprehensive. Regardless of the situation surrounding your case, we encourage you to reach out and schedule a complimentary consultation to better understand your situation. We have helped hundreds of individuals and families throughout Kentucky obtain best possible outcomes for their situation by fusing a client-centric approach with our comprehensive knowledge of our practice areas. We look forward to working with you.
