A civil right is a right or privilege that all citizens are guaranteed by the Constitution. If these rights are denied or interfered with by the government or certain others, the person whose rights were violated deserves compensation. Unfortunately, there are still many instances in Tennessee, and nationwide, where people's civil rights are routinely violated. At Sobieski, Messer & Associates, PLLC, our civil rights attorneys are committed to helping the residents of Tennessee secure damages if their rights have been violated.

  • Freedom of the press
  • Freedom of assembly
  • Right to vote

Why civil rights?

Our interest in the practice of civil rights stems from deep felt appreciation for the amazing balance struck in our Constitution between granting government the powers necessary to make a nation strong and reserving to individuals those rights necessary to preserve individual freedom.

The extraordinary powers of government (to demand and take our money, property, and in certain circumstances, our liberty) are placed in the hands of ordinary people.  Human nature predisposes people to misuse power. If we are to realize our goals of equal opportunity and individual freedom in the face of a strong government, then civil rights must be zealously guarded.

At Sobieski, Messer & Associates, PLLC, we stand up for those who cannot stand up for themselves. Our attorneys are dedicated to ensuring that all our clients are treated with respect and dignity in our office and out in the world.
