Workplace discrimination can impact every part of a person’s life. Obviously, acts of discrimination can harm your career in many ways. In addition, the stress and anxiety associated with discrimination can impact your overall well-being. Sexual harassment and racial harassment are also extremely damaging to a person’s life and career.

Providing Results-Oriented Representation
Any person dealing with discrimination or harassment can have a lot on their mind. Many people, particularly people dealing with harassment, are scared to even go to work. We know this is a horrible thing for any person to go through. We do our best to comfort and protect our clients.
Employers accused of discrimination or harassment are not likely to admit to committing these acts, at least initially. Therefore, we prepare our cases thoroughly for the possibility of trial. By doing so, the opposition understands how serious we are about your case. By building the strongest possible case, we are often able to settle cases without going to trial. At all times, our focus is on helping you get the legal relief you need.
