Civil rights lawyers in Milwaukee

Protecting Your Constitutional Freedoms

Our government is meant to protect us, our rights, and our freedoms. But sometimes, police officers or other government officials betray those ideals. When they do, it’s important to hold them accountable.

If you have been arrested without probable cause, or if the arresting officer used excessive force, your civil rights have been violated. If you exercise your right to speak about issues of public concern, the government cannot retaliate against you.

At Gingras, Cates and Wachs, we have a long and successful history helping people just like you. If your civil rights were violated, contact our Milwaukee office and get the justice you deserve.
