Civil Law

When your rights have been violated

Each person is entitled to a certain set of rights without regard to race, religion, sex, age or disabilities. But just because you may be entitled, it doesn't mean you always are treated with these rights in mind.

If you've been discriminated against and believe that discrimination has occurred on the basis of race, religion, sex, age or disabilities, contact the Law Office of Jeffrey Wicks, PLLC in Rochester, NY.

We work with you to determine whether you have been damaged and to what extent — and whether you have a case worth pursuing. We review any documentation you may already have. Our goal is to prove a pattern of unfairness.

We represent clients at trial and before appellate courts.

Pursuing justice when New York's finest violate your rights

We have particular experience in handling cases involving police misconduct. Under the U.S. Constitution, you have the right to:

  • Protection from false arrests or malicious prosecution
  • Due process in a court of law
  • Freedom from excessive bails and fines and cruel and unusual punishment
  • A speedy and public trial
  • Privacy from unreasonable and unwarranted government intrusion into your home and personal affairs

If these rights have been violated by a member of the police force, talk to us. The Law Office of Jeffrey Wicks, PLLC can help.

Righting the wrongs, even for New York's finest

Even within a police department, abuse can occur. We help members of the police force sue the department when procedures aren’t followed fairly, when harassment or discrimination occur, when something just isn’t right. That just eats away at us and we do all we can to pursue justice.

Protecting the rights of those who can't protect themselves

At the Law Office of Jeffrey Wicks, PLLC, our hearts go out to children with classifications and disabilities that entitle them to certain services under the law. But our sense of injustice rears up when school districts don't provide them. These children and their families need strong advocates to ensure they receive the proper resources. Don't go into an IEP or other meeting with social workers, special services or other administrators without talking to us first.
