Civil Rights

“No person shall be deprived of life, liberty or property without due process of law; nor shall any person be denied equal protection of the laws. Equality of rights under law shall not be denied on account of the sex of any person.”

These words provide the people of New Mexico with certain non-negotiable guarantees, and the State of New Mexico takes these guarantees more seriously than most other states. The people of New Mexico have a unique and powerful remedy for the enforcement of these guarantees – the New Mexico Civil Rights Act.

If you believe that your civil rights have been violated by a public official such as a police officer, regulatory agent, or public employer, please contact us to discuss your legal options.
