A Public Interest Law Firm Dedicated to Fighting for Civil Rights and Social Justice

We the People, have entered into a social contract with our government. The terms of that contract, in part, are found in the Constitution. The Constitution limits government actors, such as police, and government power. When government officials or the government violate a person’s Constitutional rights through abuse of power, The Vieira Firm will fight to hold them accountable.
