A violation of our rights to liberty under the 13th and 14th amendment of the US Constitution as well as under state laws is actionable as a violation of our civil rights.
Civil Rights violations present a natural continuum to the defense of an individual accused of a crime. They often involve wrongdoing by a governmental agency or an officer or agent of the government. Smart phones, officer body and dash cameras, and social media have raised a heightened awareness of instances of police misconduct and brutality against minorities across the nation.
Ms. Azari stands strong against the use of excessive force and other abuses of power by law enforcement. She works with a team of nationally renowned civil rights attorneys in the fearless fight for justice on behalf of clients and families who are victims of civil rights violations.
Together, we fight tirelessly to recover the maximum settlement from the violating individuals, agencies, city, state or federal governments.
Some examples of civil rights claims that Ms. Azari fights on behalf of her clients and their families include:
claims involving officer beatings of a citizen resulting in serious, long-term injury at the hands of overzealous law officers;
police brutality and misconduct motivated by racial profiling or discrimination based on age, nationality, sex, gender, race, age or other unlawful category; and
illegal surveillance and other invasions of privacy that violate private citizens' constitutional and civil rights.
Ms. Azari will go to any and all lengths to expose police misconduct and bring the perpetrators to justice. When necessary, she and her team will collaborate with public-interest organizations such as the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU). Ms. Azari is committed to enforcing accountability on government entities that overstep their bounds and abuse their power. She is dedicated to conducting a comprehensive investigation of brutality claims and other law enforcement misconduct including:
officer claims that their actions were necessary to protect themselves or the public;
cover-ups and collusion to conceal the circumstances of an arrest or other evidence;
wrongful arrest or detention, illegal search and seizure, and denials of due process
Ms. Azari and her team of civil rights advocates also represent clients with claims for the following:
