All U.S. citizens and residents are guaranteed certain rights and freedoms. When someone infringes those essential rights, you need a dedicated, experienced lawyer who will fight for you. The legal team at Fishwick & Associates helps defend their clients’ civil rights.
Below, we have more information that may help if you have had your fundamental civil rights violated.
What Are Common Civil Rights Cases in Virginia?
Our civil rights attorneys assist victims of:
- Title VII discrimination — race, age, and gender discrimination in the workplace
- Equal Pay Act violations
- Title IX cases — gender discrimination in educational institutions
If you have been affected by these or other civil rights issues, we handle complex cases involving both state and federal civil rights violations, and we tirelessly fight for justice on behalf of our clients and their communities.
There are strict filing deadlines in both state and federal civil rights claims. If you don’t file a complaint within the correct time period, you may lose your right to legal remedies. Because these deadlines are relatively short, you should immediately contact Fishwick & Associates to discuss your civil rights violation.
What Compensation Is Available in Virginia Civil Rights Cases?
A civil rights violation can change your life forever, causing economic hardship, emotional distress, and other suffering.
Depending on your circumstances, you may be eligible for compensation related to lost income, property damage, pain and suffering, humiliation, punitive damages, and other losses. However, state and federal laws vary dramatically, and you should always consult with an experienced civil rights lawyer before accepting a settlement or filing a discrimination complaint.
