CIVIL RIGHTS LITIGATION

We are dedicated to protecting your Civil Rights. At FLF we believe that Civil Rights are human rights afforded to us all under our constitution and should be doggedly protected.  Whether you have been treated unfairly in terms of hiring, promotion, discipline, or termination on the job, or experienced discrimination because of your race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, age, disability, or religion we have the ability to defend you. 

 

Your children are no less susceptible to a violation of their Civil Rights.  We will defend your children’s rights that have been violated by a public, private, or charter school.  All children have the right to an appropriate education, and to attend a safe school free from bullying, harassment, and physical violence.  Also, your child's school must evaluate and accommodate his, or her, disability.  We are equally dedicated to protecting your children’s rights under the law.
