Employment & Civil Rights Law
Sometimes employees or individuals who believe they are a victim of an unlawful employment or civil rights violation fail to seek legal advice. They may be scared, blame themselves, or are hoping the unlawful treatment will stop on its own. Waiting to address this problem is a serious mistake. It can prolong the unlawful treatment and it can also result in their losing the opportunity to pursue administrative and civil remedies. For example, there are certain time limitations imposed under state and federal law which if not followed, could bar the claim. A qualified attorney should be involved from the beginning to assist the individual.

A qualified attorney should be involved from the beginning to counsel the individual.
