Race Discrimination

As we state on our home page, the Supreme Court stated so simply, “[t]he way to end racial discrimination is to stop discriminating by race.” Parents Involved in Cmty. Sch. v. Seattle Sch. Dist. No. 1, 551 U.S. 701, 862 (2007). We wish it were that easy; it’s not. Our constitutional lawyers fight to uphold the civil and human rights of all Americans to be free from race discrimination. That means we not only represent people of color, but in unique circumstances we represent Caucasians as well. For example, we represent Lt. Joyner against high ranking officials of a large and prominent police department. Lt. Joyner is Caucasian and he has been the victim of a policy of race discrimination. His police department habitually replaced an existing high-ranking official with an officer of the same race of said exiting official. In Joyner’s case, the existing official was African-American, so that official was replaced with an African-American officer despite Joyner being immensely more qualified. The same has happened to African-American officers who did not get a position because the exiting official was white.

Race discrimination is not only in the work place. We sue restaurants when the facts have supported race discrimination against people of color. Because we fight against racial discrimination wherever it appears, we have gained a broad knowledge about the law in this area. Again, it’s complicated and you must have not only an experienced lawyer, but a law firm with the resources and willingness to fight for you through the end of your case, which could mean fighting for you—for years. We have done, and will do, just that.
