As a Baltimore discrimination lawyer, I assist my clients when they encounter illegal discrimination at work. The law prohibits employers from engaging in illegal discrimination. It is my job to fight back for my clients and ensure employers are held accountable when they break the law.
To hold employers accountable, I turn to potent protections under federal and state law. Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and the Civil Rights Act of 1991 are key federal statutes prohibiting discrimination on the basis of race, religion, gender, national origin and color. I also bring claims under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) or the Age Discrimination in Employment Act (ADEA). As a Maryland employment lawyer, I utilize Maryland anti-discrimination statutes as well when they provide additional potent avenues of action and relief, including Maryland's prohibition against discrimination based on sexual orientation.
When your claims arise under any of these federal or state anti-discrimination laws, we work as a team to craft an appropriate plan to right the wrong, and obtain justice in full. We can approach the problem through direct negotiations with your employer or by filing a discrimination charge with the administrative agency, or in some instances by waging a battle in the courts.
As a Baltimore discrimination attorney, I start by helping clients determine if they have a claim for discrimination. It may be clear that an employee has been subjected to misconduct or inappropriate treatment, but in a discrimination case the goal is to determine whether the employer has treated my client adversely as a result of race, gender, disability, age, sexual orientation, national origin, or other protected status.
I also represent clients who have been harassed or forced to work in a hostile work environment based on protected status, such as race, gender, disability, age, sexual orientation, or national origin. As a Maryland employment lawyer, I carefully assess the individual's specific circumstances and determine whether an illegal hostile work environment exists. Then we work together to craft the appropriate and best plan to preserve employment, or to take formal action to hold the employer responsible and obtain the award of damages the client deserves.
Discrimination of any type has no place in the workplace. If you believe you are the victim of discrimination I vow to vigorously pursue justice on your behalf. Please give me a call today and I will help.
