Civil rights are personal rights guaranteed and protected by the U.S. Constitution and federal laws enacted by Congress, such as the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990. Under these laws, all persons in the United States have a right to receive health care and human services in a nondiscriminatory manner. For example, you cannot be denied services or benefits simply because of your race, color, national origin, or disability.
Unfortunately, many persons have had their civil rights violated and are at a loss as to how best to handle the situation. Whether you have been racially profiled and harassed while you shopped in a store; whether you have been denied equal access to housing or whether you wish to regain certain rights that were taken away; All Points Legal strives to address those issues.
This area of practice sprang forth based on need. While many are not aware of their rights, when these rights are violated, people are left hopeless and powerless.
