We have brought some of the most notable civil rights cases in federal court in the western half of Virginia. We are very selective in the cases we take in this area but we have an in-depth knowledge of section 1981 and 1983 claims.
The adoption of the Bill of Rights and the United States Constitution by our founding fathers will no doubt stand as one of the most important developments in human history. The Bill of Rights provides the framework for the protection of our most basic and sacred rights, including, the rights of free speech, free assembly, freedom of religion, cruel and unusual punishment, freedom from unreasonable searches and seizures, and many other rights. As our country has matured, our understanding of our rights has matured as well, and we have learned that in protecting the rights of minorities, we preserve the integrity of our institutions and our freedom.
Today, there are many civil rights with roots in the Constitution and Bill of Rights and which were accepted at the common law and have been "codified" into federal and state statutes.
Protections of these rights can take the form of actions against discrimination on the basis of sex or race, actions under the Americans with Disabilities Act, actions against discrimination under the Age Discrimination in Employment Act, as well as many other types of claims.
At LichtensteinFishwick PLC, we have the capacity and resources to investigate and research the facts and law of each case effectively and to integrate our work into an aggressive representation.
Please contact us if you feel you or a loved one has been the victim of civil rights discrimination.
