Civil Rights Mediation


ivil rights claims against governments and their employees are quite different than normal tort cases.  The legal standards are different.  The qualified immunity and Monell issues are foreign to many attorneys.  And the motivations of the defendants can be quite different than in a personal injury matter.  Having litigated hundreds of civil rights cases, including many to a successful verdict, Kris brings extensive experience to civil rights mediations.  While civil rights cases can be very difficult to win given the standards at play, they can also be very dangerous cases for the defense when errors were made.  These cases demand a mediator with extensive experience in this area.  Kris brings that to the table.
