Chicago Civil Rights Litigation Lawyer

Serving Clients Throughout Cook County

Our forefathers supplied us with the U.S. constitution so that our freedom would forever be protected. The first 10 amendments to the U.S. Constitution are comprised of the bill of rights, one of our country's most valuable documents, which protects our hard-earned freedoms. These rights cover many of the liberties we are granted as citizens and residents of the United States of America.

Civil rights is a term used to refer to the rights that we are guaranteed as citizens that are covered mainly in the 13th, 14th, 15th and 19th amendments. These amendments grant us the right to vote, the right to be free from slavery, and the right to be treated equally in respect to life, liberty, property and in the eyes of the law.

Today this term denotes the assertion of equality for all regardless of age, sex, religion or race. Laws that moderate civil rights are created by federal law-making bodies or federal court decisions. Litigation attorney R. Tamara de Silva has earned a reputation for excellent legal representation in all civil rights-related matters. If you feel your civil rights have been violated, please speak with a Chicago litigation attorney today.

How Tamara de Silva Can Help

Ms. de Silva is able to represent clients who are dealing with a broad span of issues that relate to civil rights. Those issues include:

  • Discrimination issues, whether they relate to race or gender
  • Sexual orientation discrimination
  • Religious discrimination
  • Discrimination due to age
  • Police misconduct

While the American Government has enacted laws to protect these basic human rights, many individuals still become victims of unequal treatment and other forms of discrimination simply because they fall within a certain demographic. These individuals might find that their rights are being restricted by a public establishment, an employer or potential employer, a school or college, or other individuals or entities. In that case, they will need a skilled attorney who understands the laws that define and support civil rights. They will also need an attorney who will serve as an aggressive advocate on their behalf.
