What to Expect in a Civil Rights Lawsuit

Civil rights violation cases are filed and handled in federal or state civil court. The plaintiff will file a complaint with the court an effort to prove that the defendant is responsible for the alleged civil rights violation and any harm caused as a result. If the case goes to trial, the plaintiff must prove by a preponderance of the evidence that the defendant is responsible for the alleged violation.

Typically, a complete civil case will involve the following stages:

  • Beginning the case by filing the initial court papers
  • Discovering facts and uncovering all information
  • Reaching a resolution without going to trial via court notions
  • Reaching a resolution without going to trial via settlement or alternative dispute resolution
  • Going to trial and reaching a verdict
  • Collecting money after a judgment has been made
  • Filing an appeal

Client Testimonials

We work within our clients time frames, guidelines & unique budgets
    Mr. Bowlin represented me on an assault charge. My bond conditions wouldn't allow me to go home to my husband and children. The day after my arrest, on a Sunday, Troy met with me and my family to discuss my unfortunate arrest. The very next morning Mr. Bowlin was able to get my bond conditions lifted allowing me to go home to my family. His office went above and beyond the call of duty which resulted in a dismissal of my charge.
    - Former Client
    I will never forget the time Mr. Bowlin came to visit me in jail on a Sunday. It was Fathers day and he was the first one to wish me Happy Fathers Day. Mr. Bowlin does not know how much that meant.
