The words “civil rights” or “constitutional rights” are often thrown around in our society almost like they mean nothing. People demand these precious rights and sometimes don’t even know what they comprise or how these rights and privileges really work. In the United States all people have the rights and privileges that have to be respected. Highest among those rights is the right to petition the government for redress and grievances and to be given a fair trial on those matters.
The Law Office of Joseph M. Kar, PC is well versed with the very special rights the U.S. and California Constitutions provide, as well as the rules of law and court to navigate State and Federal court matters to champion your rights and privileges. Constitutional rights are the rights defined by both federal and state law, like the right to remain free from harm or to procreate.
For example, a government agent or clerk that refuses to act or refrain from acting against rights, such as a city clerk refusing to issue a marriage license, unfair tax imposed, a taking of property or assets without just compensation, or law enforcement officers or public school administrators abusing their authority to detriment you or your family. These are the kind of issues and disputes that will typically have to be addressed in an administrative or court proceeding.
If you have been victimized by a constitutional or civil rights violation, you need to seek the sound legal advice of an experienced attorney like Joseph M. Kar, Esq. who has taken claims to trial and appeal against governments and agencies. Some violations involve discrimination by the police using excessive force or making a wrongful arrest.

Civil rights are guarantees to the individual that you will be treated equally among other people under the law as well as your freedoms will not be infringed by any public establishment, government agencies, organizations, or persons, without due process of law.
