CIVIL RIGHTS INTAKE FORM
CIVIL RIGHTS INTAKE FORM
Below is the Civil Rights Intake Form for the Attorneys For Freedom Law Firm. We handle only select civil rights matters, and not all matters rise to the level of a civil rights case. Civil rights cases can be costly, time-sensitive, and require a lot of staff hours to pursue. For this reason, we are only able to manage a limited number of civil rights cases at one time. Therefore, we carefully screen all potential civil rights cases. So, to help us in our evaluation of your claim, please fill out the form below.
This information will allow us to determine if we are able to assist you with your civil rights matter. In order to make a civil rights claim, certain criteria must be met, or it is not an actionable case. The information you provide on this form will be confidential and only viewed by staff at the Attorneys For Freedom Law firm. All information is considered attorney/client privileged and not shared with anyone outside our law firm.
Civil Rights Intake Form
Criteria for a Civil Rights Case Include:
- You must have substantial damages.
- A government agency or representative should be responsible for your damages.
- The incident must still be within the statute of limitations to make a claim or file a lawsuit.
If you feel you have a civil rights claim that falls within the above criteria, please fill out the civil rights intake form out and submit it. After it is reviewed, we will contact you on the status of your claim.
There are many factors that need to be reviewed in a civil rights claim before filing a lawsuit such as; damages, who is responsible, when did the damages occur, where did the damages occur, what happened, what were the injuries, did the injured party receive medical treatment and much more. Damages would be the amount of money or property that you feel you are rightfully owed. This is not a made-up number, but an actual amount of loss you incurred.
Attorneys have a duty to not file frivolous lawsuits and can be sanctioned for doing so. Therefore, our law firm only handles serious civil rights matters involving provable damages. Furthermore, the attorney will be the one who decides if your matter is one that we would accept and if it would be a contingency or an hourly rate basis. Please note, we also do not accept pro bono cases. We do not accept all civil rights matters nor do we handle all civil rights matters on a contingency basis. Even if you may have a civil rights claim, we may not accept it on a contingency basis. By checking the box on the submission form, you are acknowledging you have read and understand these terms.
