Wisconsin Civil Rights Attorneys
Garvey McNeil & Associates vigorously defends the fragile civil rights of individuals and groups of individuals. Our firm has proudly represented clients in sensitive matters involving employment discrimination and retaliation, housing and accommodations discrimination, as well as prison litigation.
In 2001, a Federal District Court appointed Garvey McNeil & Associates to represent all inmates at the state's "supermax" prison in a class action. Prisoners claimed that the overall conditions of confinement were cruel and unusual punishment under the United States Constitution. We worked with the ACLU's National Prison Project to assert these individuals' rights. These efforts led to the removal of all seriously mentally ill prisoners from the prison in 2001, Jones 'El v. Berge, 164 F.Supp.2d 1096 (W.D.Wis., 2001), and a settlement on terms favorable to all prisoners at the supermax prison in 2002, with modifications to the settlement in 2007.
Garvey McNeil & Associates has successfully appealed cases to the Seventh Circuit Court of Appeals on behalf of prisoners at the supermax prison in Jones 'El v. Berge, 374 F.3d 541 (7th Cir. 2004) and Gillis v. Litscher, 468 F.3d 488 (7th Cir. 2006). Our firm works on other prisoner cases and civil rights matters as well. These include representing prisoners who have been denied medical care and psychiatric care and persons who have been sexually assaulted and subjected to excessive force while incarcerated in state prison or county jails.
