Civil Rights

Cummins & Cummins handles a wide range of civil rights matters in the Midwest, and we have worked with the United States Department of Justice to prosecute multiple claims. We litigate cases of discrimination, harassment, and/or retaliation in many areas:

  • Housing
  • Employment
  • Lending
  • Education
  • Public accommodations
  • Law enforcement
  • Business

Our firm also handles First Amendment claims and other constitutional issues.

We have secured million-dollar judgments and other large recoveries for individuals and plaintiff class members. As an example, our attorneys obtained a $6 million judgment for a class of Latino and immigrant employees working in the construction industry. We also secured a judgment of over $1 million for one family in a housing discrimination case in which the family experienced virtually no economic loss.

We invite you to learn more about Cummins & Cummins’ civil rights services and results and to contact us to schedule a consultation.
