Civil Rights Law

No matter who you are, where you come from, or how you identify, your rights are protected by law.

Civil Rights laws have transcended the Civil Rights Act of 1964. They have grown to guarantee equal treatment and prohibit discrimination based on race, gender, religion, nationality, sexual orientation, color, and age.

These rights remain protected no matter where you are or what you do—from education and employment to housing and voting. If you believe your rights have been violated, you deserve retribution and compensation for the reprehensible acts committed against you. We will represent your needs and your rights, going to trial if necessary to ensure you receive the largest settlement or verdict. We will pursue your rights in an unrelenting manner regardless of the status or wealth of the defendant.
Civil Rights Law Commonly Constitutes:
  • Police or governmental misconduct
  • Civil Rights infringements per the Civil Rights Act
  • Any form of discrimination in employment 
  • Equal Pay Act violations
  • Voting suppression
  • Access to housing, education, and public facilities 
  • Mental health issues
  • Veteran’s law
  • Guardianship law

Everyone is entitled to equal justice under the law. We won’t rest until you receive justice and full compensation for being treated unfairly.
