I was a journalist for more than 20 years before getting the opportunity for a second career as an attorney. I am passionate about civil rights. I opened a tax preparation business with my husband, Richard, in January 2014, as a trade name of my law practice, while continuing to practice in the area of civil litigation and more.
A civil rights attorney helps protect the personal rights granted to you by the government. When someone violates those rights, a civil rights attorney can help you make them stop these violations, or repay you for any damage they have done to you. Your civil rights are spelled out in federal and state constitutions and in discrimination laws. In fact, civil rights attorneys are sometimes called discrimination attorneys because they frequently handle cases involving a person being treated differently based on gender, age, ethnicity, or sexual orientation.
