Many people do not realize the constitutional rights that they have, and some attorneys are reluctant to bring actions against state or federal governmental agencies. Seattle injury attorney Michael Withey is not afraid to stand up to government officials who violate the constitutional rights of U.S. citizens, and he will fight to defend the rights of his clients. At our firm, we use our in-depth legal knowledge and creativity to craft innovative legal arguments and trial strategies that really work.

Withey has also represented a class of peaceful protestors who the Seattle Police Department falsely arrested during the WTO meetings in Seattle in 1999.

The Hollywood movie Battle in Seattle depicted the case, in which a federal court jury sided with Withey’s clients. The jury decided that the police violated the citizens’ constitutional rights. The parties reached a $1 million settlement that included the expungement of police records and changes in police training procedures for mass protests.

The United States Constitution and Washington Constitutions Guarantees Your Right to Freedom of Speech

Sometimes, we may feel as if we have no right to question any actions the government takes. After all, both the federal and state government are huge bureaucracies with significant political power and control. However, in cases of government liability, local, state and federal agencies are not exempt from punishment when they violate the rights of their citizens.

When our founding fathers established the U.S. Constitution, they created certain rights that no government officials may take away. Among these rights are the First Amendment right to free speech, the right to privacy, freedom from false arrest and imprisonment, the right to just compensation if your property is taken and due process of law.
