Civil Rights

Civil rights actions have always been an important focus of our practice.   Our work has included the successful federal prosecution by the Department of Justice, Civil Rights Division, of the police officers accused of violating the rights of Rodney King. We have also assisted the DOJ in their prosecution of murder charges against the Klan in a variety of cases.

On the civil side, attorneys seek us out for our wealth of experience in cases involving police misconduct and disability access. The social and psychological expertise at Bonora Rountree helps attorneys to educate and persuade jurors to be open to an empathic portrait of your client that cuts through bias.
