Civil Rights

At Chaloupka Law, we focus a great deal of our experience and expertise on championing and protecting the civil, constitutional, and human rights of all people, no matter their race, national origin, gender or gender identity, religion, disability, or sexual orientation.

Our Scottsbluff civil rights litigation attorney, Maren Lynn Chaloupka, has a distinguished civil rights record. She is an advocate and a leader in civil rights law and policy across the country. Maren has the courage, the skill, the reputation, and the determination to fight for her clients’ rights, even when the stakes are high and the adversaries are powerful and fierce. She finds the truth and seeks justice for those whose voice has been silenced or ignored; victims whose rights were violated by:

  • Failure to Provide Medical and Mental Health Care in Jail/Prison
  • Sexual Abuse
  • Wrongful Arrest and/or Conviction
  • False Confessions
  • Abuse of the Mentally Ill and Developmentally Disabled
  • Police Misconduct
  • Racial Profiling
  • Wrongful Death in Law Enforcement Custody
  • Assault in Law Enforcement Custody
  • First Amendment Violations
  • Unlawful Search and Seizure
  • Prisoners’ Rights
  • Governmental Abuse of Power
  • And More.

Civil and Constitutional rights cases are extraordinarily difficult to even bring to trial: the law is structured to protect the government from accountability from even clear abuses of power. An attorney inexperienced in civil right litigation can walk into landmines hidden in an individual’s only path to justice. Without the experience to prepare a civil right case correctly from the beginning, and without the will to find the truth when government witnesses refuse to cooperate, most attorneys cannot survive the myriad hazards that lead to dismissal of complex civil right cases.

We have that experience – and the will – to build a civil rights case even in the face of fierce governmental resistance. Maren was co-lead counsel for the “Beatrice 6,” whose jury returned a $28 million verdict in 2016 to compensate them for their wrongful conviction for a murder and rape of which they were completely innocent.

Don’t make the mistake of thinking that any attorney can get justice for the violation of your civil rights.  Maren is one of the few with both the experience and the guts to go the distance.
