Civil Rights

Durham, North Carolina Civil Rights Lawyer

In the American system of justice, too many cases slip through the cracks — barred by failure to report the incident in time or inability to produce a legally sufficient level of proof. Procedural and substantive hurdles can be surmounted at Law Offices of Adrienne Blocker, PLLC. With more than 19 years of experience, I thoroughly understand civil rights laws and handle state and federal claims. I am proud to provide our clients with insightful advice and sound logic as they pursue justice through the legal system.

Advocating for your individual freedoms

The freedom to speak your mind and assert your rights is granted to you as an American through the U.S. Constitution and the Bill of Rights. Your rights are constitutionally protected and incorporated against the state under the 14th Amendment. If you believe these rights have been violated, I encourage you to schedule an appointment. I handle claims relating to:

  • First Amendment — freedoms of religion, speech, press, petition, peaceable assembly and association
  • Second Amendment — right to bear arms
  • Third Amendment — refusal to quarter soldiers
  • Fourth Amendment — unreasonable search and seizure
  • Fifth Amendment — protection against self-incrimination and double jeopardy and the right of due process
  • Sixth Amendment — right to fair and speedy trial by jury
  • Seventh Amendment — right to trial by jury in some civil cases
  • Eighth Amendment — refusal to pay excessive fines, concede to jail time or undergo cruel and unusual punishment
  • Ninth Amendment — unspecified rights reserved to the states
  • 10th Amendment — limitation of federal powers to those defined within the U.S. Constitution
  • 14th Amendment — right to due process and equal protection, incorporated against the states

If you’ve experienced discrimination, you should consult a knowledgeable attorney as quickly as possible. Failure to file your claim with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) within the statutory filing period may cost you the right to have your case heard.
