Civil Rights Attorney
The Civil Rights Act of 1964 prohibits discrimination on the basis of sex and race in hiring, firing, and promoting. The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission was created to enforce this law and the meaning of the law has been expanded to prohibit discrimination based on race, color, religion, sex, national origin, disability, or age in hiring, firing, promoting, setting wages, testing, training, and all other terms and conditions of employment. Furthermore, the Fair Housing Act of 1968 prohibits discrimination in the sale, rental, and dwellings based on race, color, national origin, religion, sex, or family status. This has subsequently come to include age and disability.
This means that your civil rights cannot be infringed by an employer, government agency, or other institution. A civil right is an enforceable right or privilege that is established by state and federal law. If interfered with by another person, you may have grounds to pursue legal action. Discrimination occurs when a person’s civil rights are violated or interfered with for one reason or another. While the above statutes and others have been enacted to prevent discrimination, these instances still take place. If you have been the victim of discrimination in any form, please contact an attorney from Rad Law Firm. We have offices conveniently located in Beverly Hills, CA as well as Houston, Dallas, Austin, Fort Worth, and Brownsville, TX and are available to talk for free today about your case.

Have you been denied an apartment based on your race? Do you feel that you have been treated unfairly at work because you are a member of a protected group? Were you denied a mortgage based on something other than your financial history? Have you not been able to find employment because you are disabled? Have you been stopped or searched by the police for no reason, based on your appearance?
These types of complaints are extremely complex. If you think you were discriminated against in employment, you must file an EEOC complaint before you have the right to sue. If you have a complaint against a landlord, there are other avenues to take. In some cases, you must file an administrative complaint before you file a lawsuit. These are very complicated situations, but the lawyers at Rad Law Firm are experienced in pursuing civil rights violations.
