Prisoners’ Rights Lawyers

The prisoners’ rights lawyers at the Commonwealth Law Group understand that although a person might be in jail, it does not strip them of their basic human rights.  Every person is entitled to be treated humanely. The prisoners’ rights lawyers at Commonwealth Law Group have the experience to help if you or a loved one have experienced prisoner abuse.

Prisoners’ rights lawyers have to be experienced in civil rights cases, and the prisoners’ rights lawyers at Commonwealth Law Group have successfully worked on hundred’s of civil rights cases in the state of Virginia.  We help our clients collect compensation for physical and mental suffering, as well as medical bills and loss of future earnings.

We understand that there is a small window of opportunity to collect and investigate evidence if a prisoner has been mistreated.  It is imperative that our prisoners’ rights lawyers are contacted immediately when you feel like someone’s civil rights have been violated.

Most of the time the harmful abuse is acted out by correctional officers, correctional facility employees, or other prison inmates.  Our prisoners’ rights lawyers know how to obtain medical records from prisons or jails that help prove negligence of leadership in operation, security, and safety of the correctional facility. We also interview correctional facility employees and officers for statements that may be used as evidence in court to help defend an abused inmate’s civil rights.  Our experienced prisoners’ rights lawyers have been to trial to defend civil rights for prisoners.  Trial experience can be very important when choosing to obtain the right lawyer.  If your case goes to trial, make sure that you have prisoners’ rights lawyers who have trial experience.

If you have any questions about prisoner abuse, please do not hesitate to call our prisoners’ rights lawyers.  We will quickly set up a consultation with you and your family and give you the counsel you deserve.
