Guarding Your Civil Rights Under The Law
Federal and state laws make it clear that law enforcement must follow the rules, just like everybody else. All citizens are granted certain civil rights, including the right to proper treatment by law enforcement personnel. Even the Fourth Amendment to the United States Constitution provides protection against “unreasonable searches and seizures” and warrants issued without probable cause.
You may need an attorney to help you protect your civil rights if they have been violated. You may need defense representation if you have been accused of a crime. At Bellwoar Kelly, LLP in West Chester, Pennsylvania, our attorneys are here to help you on both counts.
