Civil Rights Law

Katz and Whitehead is committed to representing clients whose civil rights have been violated. We represented clients before the Supreme Judicial Court in a landmark case which broadened an employee’s right to religious accommodation. An associate working at the offices of Katz and Whitehead was involved in an important civil liberties case dealing with attempts by the Boston Police Department to cover up their physical abuse of suspects. The case was resolved by the Federal Appeals Court and was the subject of an editorial in the New York Times. We offer high quality legal representation in the field of Civil Rights Law for clients in Allston, Newton, Brighton, Cambridge, and other communities in the Boston area.
