We Fight For Prisoners’ Rights
If your son is in jail, he has rights. If your daughter is in prison, she, too, has constitutional rights. Without exception, everyone has rights in our country. If you or a loved one has been denied basic rights while being held in jail or prison, an experienced civil rights lawyer can help you fight back.
At Christopher Smith Trial Group, we have a record of success in protecting the rights of prisoners, whether they are in Chicago, Cook County or northern Illinois.
Unfortunately, there is a long history of prisoner abuse in those jurisdictions; a history you can help to rewrite when you fight back.
Stopping Prisoner Abuse
Whether you or a loved one has suffered at the hands of a corrections officer, jail guard, or an abusive police officer, basic civil rights were violated.
Prison guard and jail guard abuse can include:
- Physical attacks
- Failure to provide medical care
- Sexual abuse, rape and assault
- Failure to protect a prisoner from sexual abuse
- Failure to control violent inmates
- Psychological abuse
- Failure to act to prevent suicide
For decades, we have devoted ourselves to stopping the abuse of prisoners’ rights and other violations of civil rights. We fight against abuses by guards, corrections officials and inmates in county jails, state prisons and federal penitentiaries.
