Henry Sherrod,Alabama Civil Rights Trial Lawyer

I represent individuals throughout North Alabama in civil rights and employment matters.

Every day, I have the privilege of helping individuals in North Alabama fight back in a court of law when their civil rights have been violated. It’s what I do, and it’s who I am.

Protecting Civil Rights

Our rights are meaningless when they are violated with impunity.

  • I represent the families of inmates who are injured or die while in jail due to neglect of medical theft.
  • I represent employees who are discriminated against or harassed due to race, gender, sexual orientation, disability, religious affiliation or any other protected characteristic.
  • I represent victims of police misconduct, including false arrest and excessive force — victims of police shootings, assaults, pepper sprays and tasers.
  • I represent employees who are denied overtime pay to which they are entitled the Fair Labor Standards Act.

Making a Difference

My clients are ordinary people who choose to fight back when their rights have been violated.

They want more than money; they want to make a difference. I help the do that. I handle most cases on a contingent fee basis, meaning that my fee is a percentage of the monetary damages I obtain for you.

How do I choose a lawyer?

Consider the following:

Comfort Level
- Are you comfortable telling the lawyer personal information? Does the lawyer seem interested in solving your problem?

Credentials
- How long has the lawyer been in practice? Has the lawyer worked on other cases similar to yours?

Cost
- How are the lawyer's fees structured - hourly or flat fee? Can the lawyer estimate the cost of your case?

City
- Is the lawyer's office conveniently located?

Not sure what questions to ask a lawyer?

Here are a few to get you started:

  • How long have you been in practice?
  • How many cases like mine have you handled?
  • How often do you settle cases out of court?
  • What are your fees and costs?
  • What are the next steps?

Want to check lawyer discipline?

It is always a good idea to research your lawyer prior to hiring. Every state has a disciplinary organization that monitors attorneys, their licenses, and consumer complaints. By researching lawyer discipline you can:

  • Ensure the attorney is currently licensed to practice in your state
  • Gain an understanding of his or her historical disciplinary record, if any.
  • Determine the seriousness of complaints/issues which could range from late bar fees to more serious issues requiring disciplinary action.
