Civil Rights Attorneys

Civil rights

An individual’s civil rights are granted by the federal, state, and local law – as well as the Constitution and Bill of Rights of the United States. A civil rights attorney works on a diverse set of legal matters. The Civil Rights Act of 1964 banned discrimination on the basis of religion, gender, race, birthplace or sex. It is unlawful for any business, employer, or government official to discriminate. If you believe your civil rights may have been violated, whether in the workplace or not, you should consult a local civil rights attorney to protect yourself and enforce your rights.
