When you are a customer of a commercial establishment, such as a store, restaurant or casino, you do not give up the civil rights that you have when you are on a public street or in your own home. You still have the right to due process and humane treatment, even when you are on someone else’s property.
Were you detained for hours on end by casino security personnel? Did they falsely accuse you of cheating, shoplifting or assault? Were you denied your legal rights to contact a family member and generally, to be treated fairly?

Did a taxi cab driver refuse to let you unlock the door and leave the taxi until you gave him a tip? Did a night club bouncer detain you for a long period of time without due cause after you were in the vicinity of a bar fight? Our civil litigation lawyers may be able to help you collect compensation for the harm done to you when you were wrongfully detained.
