Defending Your Civil Rights

All individuals deserve equal treatment and respect, and the experienced attorneys at McCabe & Mack LLP will fight for your civil rights. You are protected by State and Federal law, which prohibits discrimination on the basis of age, disability, marital status, race, color, national or ethnic origin, religion or creed, sex or gender identity or expression, genetic information, or military or veteran status. You are also protected from retaliation for complaining about mistreatment. The attorneys at McCabe & Mack LLP are well-versed in civil rights laws and how they have changed over the years. We represent employees and employers in cases of discrimination, including:

  • Employment discrimination, wrongful termination, harassment and retaliation
  • Americans with Disabilities Act and Age Discrimination
  • Constitutional torts including Equal Protection and Due Process

If you believe you have been treated unfairly, or are being accused of treating someone unfairly, in employment, housing, lending, education, municipal services, zoning or some other area, call us today to discuss your situation and a path forward.
