False Arrest

Some Americans fear being accused of a crime they did not commit because of racial profiling, class stereotypes, or other forms of discrimination. In July 2015, Washington Post reported that 1 in 25 defendants sentenced to death are innocent. Organizations like the “Innocence Project”. Founded in 1992 began DNA testing defendants to prove they were not guilty of the crime they were imprisoned for. This organization has improved the judicial system, but there are more options for the wrongfully accused.

Employment Discrimination

Have you or a loved one faced discrimination or harassment in the workplace? Michigan has a history of strong organized labor, state and federal laws they often tend to work only in favor of the employer. The law requires victims of discrimination and harassment in workplace to jump through hoops before they can bring a lawsuit to enforce their civil rights.
