Civil Rights

Civil rights protect individuals from infringements on their personal liberty by governments and private organizations. The bases for these rights and protections are found in the United States Constitution, the Massachusetts Constitution, and federal and state law. These laws and constitutional provisions protect the basic American ideal that all people, no matter their status or opinions, are guaranteed the same rights and privileges.

The Law Office of Joseph L. Sulman, Esq., pursues civil rights claims zealously and does not shy away from controversial or difficult subjects. These cases are sometimes controversial politically and with public opinion because they can raise difficult questions about whether unpopular conduct and ideas receive protection. We accept the challenge that such cases present. No matter what right or privilege is at stake, we advocate for clients with integrity and dedication.
