Miami Civil Rights Lawyer

Miami civil rights lawyer

The Berman Law Firm represents the victims of civil rights violations who need a Miami civil rights lawyer.  We handle many different types of civil rights claims.  However, we focus our civil rights practice on civil rights claims against private entities.  These include retailers, grocery stores, hotels, malls, and other public places and businesses.  Our clients’ civil rights claims typically arise out of our clients being falsely detained or falsely arrested for shoplifting and other crimes that they did not commit.  Critically, our client should never have been detained or arrested.  We work closely with our clients’ criminal defense attorneys to obtain a favorable outcome of criminal charges.  Our close coordination with criminal defense counsel also ensures all information and materials required for a successful civil claim is secured during the criminal case.

Civil Rights Law

Civil rights violations include excessive use of force, false arrest, false imprisonment, and other misconduct by police officers, private security guards, and store employees.  You may be entitled to receive compensation when such misconduct causes you to suffer the embarrassment and indignity of a civil rights violation.
