Winning Your Battles Since 1958 Over $2 Billion Awarded to Our Clients

Philadelphia Civil Rights Attorneys

Protecting Victims’ Rights Since 1958

Civil rights lawsuits are notoriously complicated and difficult to win. There’s no constitutional duty for the police force to be competent, and prosecutors aren’t legally required to understand constitutional rights. Dozens of United States Supreme Court cases have severely limited the rights that innocent people have when the police or district attorneys mistreat them. Each year, hundreds of civil rights lawsuits are dismissed by courts before they ever see a jury. It’s crucial that each civil rights case be handed carefully, with a thorough investigation and a precise approach to the law. One misstep in bringing the case forward can cause it to be dismissed. At The Beasley Firm, our skilled Philadelphia civil rights lawyers have a thorough understanding of civil rights and, more importantly, how to handle the cases that come their way. Since 1958, our firm has obtained over $2 billion on behalf of our clients. We are experienced, thorough, and prepared for any battle.

Your constitutional rights should be upheld. Call (215) 866-2424 to speak with a trusted litigation lawyer from an award-winning firm!
