Discrimination and Civil Rights


The 14th Amendment to the United States Constitutions provides that, “All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the State wherein they reside. No State shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any State deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws.” Those words ring as true today as when the congress ratified them in 1868. No less important today, discrimination and civil rights issues require significant legal expertise and an unwavering desire to serve a client’s interests in the face of wrongful action.
