The Civil Rights Act and other federal laws guarantee equal protection for U.S. citizens regardless of their age, race, sexual orientation, gender or social status. These rights can’t be violated by an employer, government agency or institution. We regularly see the abuse of these rights as news stories and headlines. At Gash & Associates, P.C., we make it our mission to protect our clients and their civil rights.
The Civil Rights Act of 1964 was not only important for racial equality. It also provided for the establishment of the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) to ensure fair employment practices and guaranteed that no one would be discriminated against based on their color, race sex, age, origin or religion. If any action has been taken that jeopardizes these rights, it is critical to work with an experienced civil rights attorney. Discrimination cases can be complex and difficult to prove and we understand the interpretation of the law as it pertains to you.
We count on police and law enforcement to protect us from harm and far too often, those in power abuse their position. Sometimes this abuse of power violates our civil rights. Our mission is to work tirelessly to challenge civil rights violations and keep the law working for us, not against us. If a police officer’s decision to use force is based on racial or ethnic profiling, we won’t back down from protecting our client’s rights. These civil rights actions are often critical in opening eyes and changing the behavior of those who tend to use force inappropriately.
We understand that cases of excessive force, employment discrimination or other discrimination, and civil rights violations can be daunting. It may seem that you are picking a fight with a system that has bottomless resources. It may seem hopeless, but it isn’t. Fighting for these important rights helps to guarantee those rights for everyone. Our job is to level the playing field and provide the support and knowledge you need to have your voice heard. We take this responsibility very seriously. Contact us for a free and confidential consultation regarding your case.
