Civil rights cover many aspects of law, but at its core is the preface they are legal actions between parties that are not criminally-related. These claims generally arise out of disputes between two or more entities such as people (as individuals and as groups), businesses or companies, and government institutions. If you need legal help with your civil matter, reach out to a South Carolina civil rights lawyer at the Marc Brown Law Firm in Columbia, SC.
As stated in the South Carolina Legislature, our Columbia civil rights lawyer will uphold the rights to individuals affected by, “the practice of discrimination against an individual because of race, religion, color, sex, age, national origin, or disability as a matter of state concern and declares that this discrimination is unlawful and in conflict with the ideals of South Carolina and the nation”.
Civil rights are the process in which civil matters are resolved in a court of law. Because civil rights, in general, is loosely described as any legal case that is “non-criminal”, the result is a rather broad category of law. And as such, the nature of the cases differs from client to client. Our attorneys handle personal injury claims, injury to crime victims, and civil rights violations.
Freedoms are granted to all individuals and should never be taken away. Unfortunately, in some large corporations and government positions, some tend to have a power struggle and abuse these freedoms at another’s expense. When your personal civil rights are abused, you should be able to seek justice and fair compensation. Below are some examples of civil rights violations.
Any of the above violations will require legal help from a skilled and experienced attorney who has studied civil rights and the laws they entail. Marc Brown Law Firm is here to defend you rights and freedoms you have fought to preserve your whole life. You are in good hands when you trust our law firm.

Our client sustained injuries to her finger while being serviced at a popular nail salon. The injury became infected, which required her to undergo a minor surgical procedure.

Our client suffered a serious head injury when a negligent driver attempted to pass him as he rode his bike along the side of the roadway.

In the United States of America, the roots of what is moral for protecting an individual’s freedoms stem from the set of rights that were designed to secure an individual from all unfair treatment. Also, they were made for these individuals to receive fair treatment in the many circumstances that occur in life. These include areas in education, public accommodations, the workplace, housing, and more. Specific laws can be found at the federal level and are listing below:
Each state also passes there own set of civil rights laws that are similar to the ones on a federal level. These state laws that are put into place can be more protective to the citizens of the state than those on the federal level regarding certain civil rights.
The history of equality and social justice in the southern states has been a struggle and caused tension between the people who lived in them. This burdensome path included racial violence, voter discrimination, segregation, and more, which were not easily overcome. Two prominent places within the state hold the preservation of these civil rights struggles: South Carolina State House and the Modjeska Monteith Simkins House. These locations protect the memories and relentless effort of those laying a foundation for all to experience the benefit of obtaining Civil Rights.
