Hi, and Welcome to JustAnswer. Thank you for your question.
My name is Andrea, I am an Attorney and would be glad to help
I am sorry you were subjected to this. In this day and age, with so many problems in the world, I would think that people have put racial profiling in the past and try to solve today's problems. But, unfortunately, I have seen this happen all too often - put a uniform on anybody who has a severe inferiority complex, and all of a sudden, he feels courageous. Take the uniform off of him and he is one big nothing, doing nothing but taking up space.
It sounds like you have a very strong case of racial profiling, and while any number of legal experts here on JustAnswer would love the chance to take on this case, JustAnswer is not a law firm and has a strict site policy which prohibits any expert in the legal category from taking on any customer as a client. and, therefore, no attorney-client relationship is ever formed.
However, I am able to give you some guidance as to how to find the best lawyer possible for your case. First, you should contact the American Civil Liberties Union ("ACLU" ) in Indiana. Although they do not regularly take on individual cases, they have been known to take individual cases where a person's civil rights have been violated. Also, they very, very often have class actions where they represent all the members in a class who have similar grievances that their civil rights have been violated and I am a firm believer that there is strength in numbers. You can find all their contact information relating to their Indiana offices at their website:
The ACLU does not fear any group or government agency. They will take on any of them where the issue is a violation of the individual's civil rights, or a violation of rights guaranteed by the United States Constitution and its Amendments
You can also contact the Indiana Bar Association Lawyer Referral Service. Tell them what your situation is and ask for the names of several attorneys with substantial experience in civil rights litigation. Speak to all of them, consultations are usually free, and cases such as your are taken on a contingency fee agreement. Then select the one with whom you feel the most comfortable and who has answered all your questions without hedging, or avoiding a direct answer.
