Michigan Civil Rights Attorneys

Nacht Law - By Your Side

At Nacht Law in Ann Arbor, Michigan, our attorneys have received commendations from civil rights organizations for our skilled representation in precedent-setting civil rights cases. If you have been illegally discriminated against in voting, housing, employment, or other matters, contact a lawyer at Nacht Law today to learn more about how we can help you.

Violations of Your Civil Rights

Discrimination based on the color of your skin, the religion you practice, or the country you were born in should never be a factor in any aspect of your life. However, the reality is that these factors too often are illegally considered by employers, landlords, salespeople, and others to deny you your basic rights.

Experience, Knowledge, and Advocacy for Clients

Discrimination is not only a societal problem, but it is a violation of the law. At Nacht Law , we can assist you in holding those who have discriminated against you accountable for their actions. Our attorneys not only bring a wealth of experience, but also a thorough understanding of state and federal civil rights laws, including the Elliott-Larsen Civil Rights Act and Title VII.

Housing, voting, and other civil rights violations should be handled aggressively with an experienced attorney at your side. For more information or to schedule an appointment with one of our civil rights attorneys, please contact us. Nacht Law serves clients throughout Michigan.

Consumer Rights and Protection

The Michigan Consumer Protection Act prohibits "unfair, unconscionable or deceptive methods in conduct of trade or commerce." If you have been victimized by unfair trade practices and deceptive advertising, including antitrust violations, price-fixing, defective pricing/marketing/labeling, do-not-call list violations, consumer fraud or unfair debt collection practices, we will protect and enforce your rights under Michigan law.

Education Law

Our attorneys provide educational institutions and their employees with top-notch legal counsel in the area of education law. From ensuring equality in the classroom to handling claims and hearings on behalf of faculty, staff and administrators, our lawyers represent faculty and staff from every major higher education institution in the state.

Civil Rights

We provide legal representation to persons who have encountered illegal discrimination or been denied basic civil rights in voting, housing, employment and other matters. We fight to protect our clients' First Amendment rights when they are retaliated against for speaking out.

Criminal Defense and White Collar Crimes

Our firm provides aggressive representation to clients facing charges in state or federal court. We understand the impact that criminal charges can have on your life. From allegations of corporate fraud to drug trafficking, we will work hard to protect your rights and your freedom.

Debt Collection Defense

Debt collectors often use unfair and harassing practices when trying to collect a debt. Michigan law makes many of these practices illegal. In addition, Michigan law also grants special protection to people who have fallen into the trap of "payday loans" and revolving credit card debt. We regularly protect our clients from aggressive and overreaching debt collection practices. When our lawyers fight back, they fight back hard, bringing counterclaims against debt collectors when necessary. We also represent our client in attempts to collect on default judgments, to garnish wages or bank accounts.

Land Use, Planning and Zoning

Our firm regularly represents clients before planning commissions, city councils and other local regulatory bodies. Over the years, we have represented public entities, private individuals, neighborhood associations and businesses in a wide range of land use disputes. Whether you are pursuing a variance, appealing an adverse decision or seeking to enforce your zoning and development rights, our lawyers provide effective and compelling advocacy.
