Introduction to Firm's Employment Practice

From a civil rights perspective, aside from the Constitution itself, the most important law ever passed was the Civil Rights Act of 1871, which gave citizens the right to sue governmental officials who violate their constitutional rights. Our firm is one of the very few in the nation that can say it was in existence in 1871 when that law was passed.

We use that law, now known as 42 United States Code section 1983, and the many other civil rights, employment, and labor laws passed since that time, in fighting to get justice for our clients who have been victims of abuses of power either at the hands of governmental officials or private employers. We work hard for our clients and are dedicated to these very important and special cases, because this line of work is at the very heart of what makes the United States a democratic society and what can make us a more just society.

If you believe you have been mistreated and are seeking a remedy of this kind, we would be pleased to hear from you.
