Human Rights Violations
You think that there is little you can do. Torture, police misconduct and other human rights violations often go unreported or undiscovered. When the spotlight is shown upon these abuses, the authorities often elude punishment. Getting justice can seem like an unachievable dream.
At Akeel & Valentine, PLC, we vigorously represent victims of torture and other civil rights abuses by government and private authorities. We seek justice for those who have been wronged, as well as compensation for the physical pain, emotional suffering and other losses suffered by our clients.
For a consultation about a human rights case in the U.S. or abroad, call us at 248-918-4542.
Lawyers Fighting Against Human Rights Abuse
Our attorneys know how to call upon the proper Constitutional protections to make sure the crimes you have experienced do not remain unpunished. We can help you recover from domestic or international human rights abuses, whether they came from the police, the military, a government contractor or another party.
Even if the crimes you experienced were not directly caused by the government, you still have rights. Corporations contracting with the government overseas are subject to many of the same international rules as the governments themselves. The Alien Tort Claims Act gives foreign citizens standing to sue in U.S. courts for crimes committed against humanity. If we believe that your case has merit, we can file suit in federal court in Detroit, Michigan, or another location on your behalf.
