Civil Rights Advocacy and Advice

American democracy is built upon the foundation of individual civil rights, which are protected at the federal and state levels. In cases where government decision-makers, civil administrators or private entities infringe on an individual’s civil rights, legal action may be necessary. Enforcing civil rights protections through legal action serves three important purposes; it provides justice for the immediate victim of the violation, discourages further infringement of rights and helps protect the public.

Matthew T. Miklave, a civil rights lawyer with offices in New York and Connecticut, proudly fights to advance civil rights and the rule of law. Whether representing the individual denied an accommodation to overcome barriers created by disabilities, working with employers to navigate the complexities of conflicting federal and state employment regulations, or counseling displaced workers trying to reenter the workforce, Matt’s entire career has focused on the rights and obligations of individuals and entities in the workplace. He is proud to claim the title of one of the top choices for civil rights litigation in NY and CT.
