Minneapolis Civil Rights Lawyer
Federal, state, and municipal laws guarantee the right to be free from discrimination based on race, color, creed, religion, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, marital status, physical or mental disability, receipt of public assistance, or age. I am committed to helping my clients who have been treated unfairly because they possess one or more of these protected characteristics. Persons victimized by discrimination are entitled to damages, and we will negotiate compensation or sue the party who engaged in discriminatory conduct and represent you in court, if necessary.
Congress has also enacted laws making it unlawful for persons acting “under color of state law” to deprive others of rights guaranteed by the United States Constitution and other federal laws. We help clients sue state actors who violated their protected rights, including police officers liable for police misconduct, police brutality, false arrest, or excessive force.
We have developed a sub-focus in school discrimination law. Specifically, we sue school districts whose employees violated students’ civil rights or turned a blind eye to student-on-student harassment.
We have also developed a sub-focus in public accommodation discrimination. Specifically, we sue places of public accommodation who discriminate against persons because of their membership in a protected class, most frequently in cases where a place of public accommodation denied services to someone because of their use of a service animal.
We take most cases on a contingent fee basis, which means you owe us nothing unless we are able to recover money for you.
