Civil Rights and Wrongful Death Litigation

Lane + Linnenburger + Lane represents and supports plaintiffs seeking to recover damages from government actors for the violation of their constitutional rights under state and federal law. 

Pursuing claims against the government requires seasoned attorneys who understand the intricacies of civil rights law, the abbreviated statutes of limitation for certain claims against government actors, as well as how to litigate assertions of qualified immunity.
